It’s completely normal for your 11 year old to send you a text when you’re sat at work to ask if her and her 8 year old brother can actually make a potion, isn’t it?
Naturally I said no but then my working mum guilt kicked in and I ended up letting them under the strict instruction that they didn’t make a mess and they only used juice and cake sprinkles!
They clearly thought it through because half an hour later I got another text – this time with a photo of a recipe that they’d written for their potion:
They’d put so much effort in to the recipe that I didn’t have the heart to tell them no so I said that it sounded yummy and to save me some – BIG MISTAKE 😉
My next photo was of the finished potion and had me seriously regretting that I asked them to leave some for me:
I’m all for encouraging creativity but there was no way I was trying that!
But they had some fun while I was at work and I must have Miss Frugal well trained since she took photos throughout ‘just in case’.
Now I wonder what the potion actually does….
