Fun with diapers and tampons

This post on Awkward Family Photos made me laugh, because I could totally see one of my three kids getting into the big box of Seventh Generation and becoming a Diaper Ninja, too. There’s a big Barbie party going on in our house 24/7, and we’ve got a Hex Bug invasion we should probably talk to Terminex about–but the toys my children gravitate towards aren’t actually toys.

They are tampons. And toothpicks. And duct tape. (Don’t ask.)

But when you think about it from their perspective–if you push hard on one end of your favorite super plus, this cool cotton thing with a string at the end goes shooting across the room. That’s really neat.  My new favorite eyeliner (Belgian chocolate by Honeybee Gardens) might be great for a smoky eye–but apparently can also be used for writing, “I’m a rock star” on a skinny little forearm.

Oh, and sea salt? Yummy on food. But much more fun if shaken all over the entire living room tile floor to create an indoor “beach.”

They are lucky they are cute.

    Love it! The the only problem is that they know they are cute too, and put on the charm to get out of trouble! lol!

    Now, you have me wondering what weird household items I used (and, more likely, my brother used)when I was young. I know we made a lot of forts in the house, but that’s pale in comparison to the Diaper Ninja. Kids are so creative! I’m definitely asking my mom about this…
