Not much time to blog these days.  M and J are sick.  Not just stuffy-nose sick.  I'm talking, fever, vomitting, coughing, stuffy-nose sick.  Strangely, D and I are fine though neither of us got much sleep last night.  M is better than J - at least he has more energy and is forever wanting to chase after her.  During those times, I find playdough is a Godsend!  Whether you like to make your own or prefer to buy it, trust me: IT IS A LIFESAVER.  (We often break open our playdough when J takes her first nap in the morning.)  

If only playdough could cure chest colds...


1 cup flour
1/2 cup salt
2 Tbsp cream of tartar
1 Tbsp veg oil
1 cup water
*food colouring

Mix first 4 ingredients together.  Dissolve food colouring in water.  Add water to mixture and combine well.  Cook on medium heat, stirring constantly, for 3-5 minutes.  (Dough will form clump.)  Remove and knead by hand for 5 minutes.  Keep in airtight container or ziploc bag.
