Have you ever tried to play with Play-doh with your two-year-old son without touching any of the Play-doh yourself?
It’s really hard.
But you know what’s even harder?
• Getting that nasty Play-doh smell off of your hands.
• Digging Play-doh out from underneath your fingernails.
• Touching—ick!—Play-(shudder)doh. Gross.
• Coming to terms with the fact that all three of your children have waaay healthier responses to sensory stimulation than you do.
I’m getting better. Six years ago I wouldn’t have touched the stuff with a ten-foot pole. Now I only need a two-foot pole.
