When it's a parenting theory, proving those wrong happens on an hourly basis . Come to think of it, on most days, parenting harebrained theories are proven false at a rate of four per hour.
But basic insignificant, "non-applicable to anything in this world or the next" harebrained theories tend to lack any rigorous testing and therefore file themselves as truth in my brain.
Actually, why I even form these idiotic hypotheses concerning how to parent a toddler* and the multitude of totally trivial events that pepper my life is what really requires examination.
* because I'm wrong - I'm always WRONG
But that topic is no fun to post about. Insanity is all over the place these days: over-examination of minutia is so right now.
And moving right along to that harebrained theory.
Motherbumper's crackpot theory on something so trivial that by reading this post, I'm actually sucking the lifeblood out of you:
When making home made play dough, deviating from the basic food colouring chart on the back of the box of the aforementioned food colouring will result in a pile of the most uninspiring and most depressing doomsday grey clay.WRONG!
Four drops of neon yellow mixed with two parts neon red makes BABY POOP!
Good thing toddlers don't give a sh*t.
