Because motherhood will never be a perfect science

Hubba Bubba bubble

on December 21, 2014

I don’t normally give the kids gum but we were at a birthday party a week ago and the pinata was filled with hubba bubba bubble gum. So yesterday Diva girl asked me how to blow a bubble with bubble gum and I realized I had deprived my child of one of life’s little pleasures when you’re a kid.  So Daddy and I got some gum as well and proceeded to first remind ourselves how to blow a bubble and then tried to teach her. I have to say I had forgotten how much fun it is to chew something other than mint gum. The sugary sweetness that lasts no longer than 10 minutes and then you need to throw that piece away and get a fresh piece. I remember chasing a sore jaw at the end of the day.
So there we were chewing and blowing but she couldn’t get it. There was gum and spit flying everywhere!  Fun times.
I told her that it’s just like snapping, skipping and whistling…she just had to keep practicing. 
Until then…let the spit fly child!
