It all started when I decided to be bold and try to take a shower while home alone with children who were awake. Of course, in the thirty seconds it took me to shampoo my hair Tiruye found a box of cornstarch and dumped it out. Before cleaning it up, I called Atticus and Norah to bring the Dustbuster and admire their little sister's handywork. They asked if they could play in it before we cleaned up and I agreed - picturing them drawing pictures with their fingers in the white powder. I'd obviously forgotten the personalities of my older children because, true to form, they dove headfirst into the mess and turned it into an adventure of a whole other level.
