Unfortunately tidiness isn't the only problem in this home. My stuff is often found and being used for experimental, and creative play.
Where she happens to find all these things is beyond me but I give her extra credit for creativity.
I often wonder if I just don't spend enough time with her. If her self entertainment is a cry for attention.
I had some making up to do, so I decided a movie night would be perfect. But not just any movie. A movie filled with hard lessons, strong faith, and a reminder to cut myself some slack. "Return of Nanny McPhee" With that said, there was only one more thing to complete our night.
I'm not going to give a special secret recipe for popcorn. However I will tell you how we jazzed up this one and made it very appropriate for this time of year. Making our movie night a little extra special.
|1 Tb melted butter and 4 drops red food coloring|
|1 Tb melted butter and 4 drops green food coloring|
Make your popcorn over stove-top as directed on bag of corn, only I used 1 Tb canola oil.
Pour prepared colored butter over the top, salt and stir. I didn't use all of the butter in mine but feel free.
Miss, Nanny McPhee, how I love thee.
I was surprised how much I enjoyed this movie. And how much I wish I had a magic stick to put everything back in order. But most of all I was surprised that while my time with her is important, she is just as content to explore and find herself on her own.
And making a mess is part of it.
