Hurricane Sandy hasn't hit yet, but the wind is out of control.
Also, the kids are too, because there's no school today.
The instinct to let them (encourage them) to watch TV all morning was very strong because I felt like once the power went out (and we know it will, we're in NJ after all), we'd be extra bored. But by 10am, even the kid were sick of watching.
We had spent the whole day yesterday doing laundry and moving toys and clothes and furniture out of the basement and so when three different people asked me last night what
the schedule of the day for the hurricane was going to be, I thought they were a little nutty. I also thought they were making fun of my schedule of the day in the summer - which they were - but I like the questioners, so it was okay.
Hmmm, so a Hurricane Schedule.
Not a clue.
A quick little trip through pinterest found us some goodies.
And the first, from Momtastic, is washable window paint.
Mix some washable kiddie paint with a small squeeze of dish soap and you're done.
We mixed and we were ready.
And the results are so much fun and make the porch look so pretty and festive. Festive, you know, for the hurricane.
Baby wipes get the paint right off the window, so no worries.
Are you a Mom?
Of course you are,
your shirt is dirty :)
