She blinded me with science!

Today, Miss Kid and I launched straight into her Spa Science kit - chemistry masquerading as girly stuff. I am pleased to tell you that she does not actually need to have her science masquerading as anything else in order to enjoy it; she digs it, particularly chemistry. "Let's throw the citric acid in and see what happens!" But this is a good excuse to use science to make a nifty birthday gift for my birthmom.

I just love going over chemical reactions with her and having her totally enraptured. I love finding out-of-the-box ways to present science, so she doesn't get it just out of dry textbooks and droning teachers - this, the Owl Puke kit...

Lucky mama!

In other news, I decided to go with the Italian Collection rather than the Fleurs. It's just more interesting. After I told Adam my decision, someone in my earlier thread pointed out that Vosges had just sold out of the Fleurs. I take this as proof of having chosen wisely. Don't ask how the logic works. Just know that the logic brings me chocolate with Kalamata olives.

Semi-related to the original topic - being a mom means always having a scrap of ribbon to decorate the handmade gift!

(No, I did not think 12 years ago that I would have a life that involved handmade bath products and spare ribbon, but that's a whole 'nother post.)
