As I was preparing dinner, trying to ignore the screaming and nagging hovering around me, one of Maddy's posts from Whitterer on Autism came to mind.
I'm making mashed potatoes, and while I couldn't justify giving Bubba a potato peeler and stand him next to his brother, I certainly could let him and Moose "scrub" the potatoes.
So that's what I did. And they loved it. And I loved it (especially the part where I made Hubby clean up the unsurprising pool of water).
For a good time, just add water.
