   So I found this recipe thanks to my dear cousin Abby.  I'm trying to get ready for a birthday party tomorrow and when I found this recipe I thought it would be the perfect distraction for the girls to play with while the baby sleeps and I try to get something accomplished before I'm tied to the chair for another feeding session (for him or for me is irrelevent).
     One and a half cups water with a couple drops of food coloring mixed with a box of corn starch.  Even I couldn't bomb that one.  So I whipped up a batch and as I sat there mixing I tried to figure out if it was liquid or solid, which took a good while.  I'd still be sitting there trying to determine if the girls hadn't discovered I was up to something and demanded a turn. (to Abby's credit her recipe did state it was fun for adults too)
     Anyway, I did get a couple of pieces of laundry put in baskets before the baby woke up.
The girls are currently splashing in the tub being that it turned into a oobleck war with the stuff flying in all directions. 
  And the real good part is that even though the mess is still sitting right there while I sit right here and nurse my baby is that I don't even care right now.  You see, I was awaiting a Fed Ex delivery and wondering what the guy was going to think when he saw this stuff splattered everywhere, but I just saw him deliver my package to the neighbors, so he got to see THEIR mess instead!
