Hopeless Parents



This guest post from Lenny Mcknight

I love my parents. They are wonderful people and I am lucky to have them as parents. However, when it comes to anything regarding modern technology, they are hopeless. My mother called me once to tell me the computer was broken. She proceeded to tell me the screen was black and none of the buttons were working. When I asked if she had turned it on, her response was “you have to turn it on”. This at least gives you an idea of how clueless they are. Well, last week their satellite went out or so they thought. Now, I am not an expert satellite technician, but by listening to my mom describe the problem it was a simple fix. She told me the lights on the box were not working and the power button was not either. To be honest, I was impressed that she tried the power button. I asked her if it was plugged in and she told me yes immediately. When I finally talked her into checking, the problem was fixed. Apparently she unplugged it to vacuum and never plugged it back. Sometimes I wonder if she will ever learn and accept technology.

Last week we tried out the fizzing sidewalk chalk- click here to read that review. This week it is liquid chalk spray.  They are a bit similar but yet different.  Here is how to make it: Supplies: 1 tsp. washable tempura paint 1 cup of hot water 1/2 cup of cornstarch squirt of dishwashing liquid 1 squirt bottle- I found them at the dollar store 1.  Add cornstarch to one cup of hot water whisking to mix so that there are no clumps. 2.  Add one teaspoon of washable tempura paint and a quirt of dishwashing liquid.  Mix well. 3.  Pour it into your squirt bottles and shake well. 4.  Go have fun!!!   This kept my daughters attention much longer the the fizzy chalk last week.  I also think this was easier to work with and just more fun in general.  I love seeing the chalk wet but then to see it dry.  I think it dried darker so it was fun to see the changes.  :)  Ready, Set, Go!  Have some fun!
