Teachers and OCD moms everywhere are about to cringe. Ready?
It’s okay to mix the colors. It’s okay! Two months ago, I couldn’t say those words. But now, I can. After my friend Carla told me that her 2 year old likes the way the Play-Doh colors look when mixed and pointed out that Play-Doh IS fairly inexpensive, well…..I stopped being so OCD about it. I tried to remind Captain Fussybuckets to keep the colors separate, but when I left him with his Play-Doh cake making station to tend to Baby D one day…..I came back to a blob of Play-Doh. And you know what? It was kinda cool the way the pink was streaked in the blue. I took a deep breath. It really IS okay to mix the colors.

And how could you make this awesome cinnamon roll without somewhat mixing the colors??
Play-Doh is awesome. It helps you to release stress and let go of things, like color mixing.
It’s gonna take awhile to get over my true phobia.
Because for some reason, my 2 1/2 year old loves to crumble the Play-Doh. *sigh*
(Just like his father and grandfather like to leave toast crumbs in the butter.)
