Madeline came home from school today full of excitement over this note she'd folded up and stuffed into her pocket.
"Mom, look what I got out of a science book at school! A recipe for fake blood! Can we make it?" she asked, pulling out the note and showing it to me.
I had to laugh. I mean don't we have enough blood around here? We lance Jack's fingers, what? Eight, ten, twelve times a day? And with three young, klutzy kids, we certainly have our fair share of cuts, scrapes and big boo boos.
Besides, what does one do with fake blood? Save it for Halloween? Test its BG level?
"Sure, we can make it," I answered.
"Yay! Jack, mom said we can make fake blood!" she yelled, running out of the room to find her brother.
I could hear Jack. "Really? Fake blood? Cool!"
"That's awesome!" Max declared upon learning the news.
So much excitement over fake blood!
I just added light corn "syrub" to my grocery list, and I'm thinking that when we make the recipe, we'll definitely test its sugar level.
And I'm still laughing.
