My morning started with my son saying, “I’ve still got mashed potatoes in my ears!”
Add that to the list of things I never thought I’d hear from my children.
Last night, I drove my son and friend to his first middle school youth group event, aptly named “Crud Wars.”
In the back seat I listened as the boys compared guesses as to what it would be like.
Overheard: “I hope it’s as fun as I imagine.”
“This will cross off another thing on my list.”
“The list of things I want to do with my life.”
The boys were dropped off with safety goggles and clothes that they wouldn’t mind if their parents threw away shortly.
Two hours later, I covered the seats with beach towels and picked the boys up. “Was it as good as you imagined?”
So what made the ultimate crud wars every kids’ dream? Here are some of the ingredients to this ultimate food fight:
Waterballoons filled not with water but with soda pop and lemonade.
Cooked spaghetti noodles
Bottles of ketchup and mustard
A baby pool filled with instant mashed potatoes
A hose to wash everyone off after the epic battle. (Clearly this doesn’t hose out your ears.)
Now my other children and their friends are begging for a family version of crud wars in the backyard. I’m preparing for battle! Have you ever done a food fight?
