“We filled up a kiddie pool in the middle of our living room, dumped all of the ingredients into the pool, and used our bodies (diaper and all) to mix the slime.”
Let’s face it – it’s hard to let your kids make messes sometimes knowing that you’re the one who’s going to be stuck cleaning up afterward. That said, sometimes you have to suck it up and let them have fun.
This Utah mom of six took that to the extreme when she decided her kids had enough of cabin fever and let them fill up a giant pool of slime in the living room.
The ensuing video, of course, went viral, and mom talked to Today.com.
“Like most 11-year-olds, our daughter is elbows deep in this slime craze. So, when she asked to make a pool full of slime, the normal flood of anxiety and questions came to my mind.”
They made the slime out of glue, shaving cream, contact solution, and food coloring – so that should give you an idea of exactly how chill this momma was.
Despite the cringe-worthy photos, mom made an effort to enjoy the day and not worry too much about the aftermath.
“Messes aren’t so bad. As long as you aren’t teaching your children to destroy things and have no regard for them, making a mess isn’t a bad thing.”
tl;dr: life is short, memories last forever, and this is the kind of thing your kids will look back on with a smile on their faces.
