It's funny, no matter how cranky the kids are getting, all we have to do is whip out a tub of play-doh and all is right with the world... Of course it's not like it gives us time off. There are lots of important things to be done such as rolling the chunks they hand to us into balls or squares. Or buying and 'eating' the play-doh food they've made in their restaurant.
Maybe Santa will bring us a few more tubs. The ones we have are starting to dry out...half of it in the carpet! *sigh*
