My children are totally brainwashed….
I picked up DS2 from his Creative Writing class. He told me that he had to come up with a zillion ways to pop a balloon. I was quite impressed with his creative problem solving, especially when I tried to stump him and couldn’t.
As we turned into the driveway at my studio, a light bulb came on. Son, how would you pop a balloon with a cotton ball? (hah! got him there!!)
Duh, Mom. Open it up, spin it into yarn, then pull the yarn around the balloon until it pops.
Well, duh indeed.
Later, I heard DS2 pose the same problem to DS1. He came up with the same solution.
Yay for me– I don’t have girls to play with in my studio, but I can still brainwash my boys!!
