It seems one of the most fun things a Grandmother can do is send her grandkids something to panic their parents.  Last night I gave a sneak peek to my daughters that this green slime is what their children were getting for St Paddy’s day.  Yep, the questions blew up my phone which I just replied with laughter.

The eldest who has two lovely daughters said, “You mean you are sending that to your Grandsons, right”,  thus making sure her younger sister would receive this fun gross gift for her boys.  But the younger daughter with the three boys said, ” OK, does this green goo stuff stick, ooze or bounce or does it leave a film on the surface it lands, does it stick to furniture, my hair, eyeglasses or walls?   And she is speaking from personal experience here.

Paybacks from parents to their children are so much fun.  These lovely children of mine gave me quite a few panicked moments in the past and so I am just enjoying these new moments way too much.  And one way to do this is giving gifts like this Green Slime recipe.   But I heard almost complete silence from my son and his lovely bride, I do believe they are now scared to have babies worrying about what I will send them in the future.
