My 8 year old B grabbed my hand last night and declared he had fixed a long standing problem in our home.
The pitcher that we use for our Sugar Free Cool-aid/Crystal Light has a rip in the spout. When we pour the drink...often red, or pink...it dribbles down the side of the pitcher and splats onto the counter top. My boys know this annoys me to no end. They are required to use 409 every time they pour a drink to clean away the stain that is left.
Should I get a new pitcher...of course!
But it always seems to evade my shopping list and has just stuck around for the last few months as a thorn in my side.
But back to earlier...B had declared the problem fixed...
He took two new test strips and peeled them apart, which any diabetic kid worth their salt knows this turns the strip into a sticker. He then bandaged up the tear in the pitcher and Ta Dah!!!!!!!!
He was so proud of his smartness!!! But alas...they had to come off. If one of them un-stuck and fell into a drink, and then someone swallowed it, well...not good.
But Bravo anyway! His genius shines! I wonder if Einstein had such ingenuity when he was 8 years old?
