Remember the mean Grandma post? One of the things that made me a "mean grandma" was this:
The evening was great - until I let them play pool unsupervised. By the time I got downstairs, the floor was covered with baby powder. The powder is there for the hands so the pool cue slides easily, which generated Rule 2.
2. You don't let the pool cue powder get anywhere except your hands.Mean grandma's punishment? If you need powder on your hands for the rest of the weekend, there is plenty on the floor. LOL you should have seen the hand prints - including mine of course. Dang if I was going to let perfectly good powder go to waste! The floor is concrete so it made no difference - I just wanted them to learn to be more careful in the future.
So last night Dakota's dad comes upstairs and says to me, "Did you tell Dakota that the right way to powder his hands for playing pool is to pour the powder on the floor and then put his hand in it? I'm like, Huh? He says, "Yea, we were getting ready to play pool and he took the powder and poured some on the floor. I asked what the heck he was doing and he said, this is how Grandma said it is done". OMG I was laughing so hard that I couldn't explain!
We had a wonderful Christmas eve, and I'll post more (including pictures of course) soon!
