In every Mom's life (when their children are in elementary school) In the spring there is.....
It's gruesomely frightening.
It's the stuff nightmares are made of
The yearly science fair project!
It's that time of year when our kitchens are turned in laboratories and we awake to find moldy bread or dying plants on our kitchen table, and it's there on purpose!
Last year I had eight tiny fans on day and night trying to find out how long batteries lasted. The humming drove me coo coo for cocoa Puffs.
I have had hard boiled eggs sitting in salted water mimicking the dead sea.
I have jumped rope and ran obstacle courses to find out if music would help with endurance.
We have cut and glued. We have researched and single handedly kept Highlighter pens in business.
Noticed the word WE....enough said.
Well NO MORE!
I have grown my last green bread mold.
Smelled my last stinky test tube and killed my last plant with vinegar.
I love science but there is just so many exploding soda bottles and rotting potato clocks I can take.
My Son is in fifth grade and yesterday we finished his last science fair project that he will ever HAVE to do.
Now usually when My children do something for the last time I get a bit misty.......lets see if I can conjure up some tears for old times sake........
Nope, not gonna happen
To all the science fair projects of the past.....
I say.....BUH BYE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
