Mentos Moments

The kids will now demonstrate:

This is the latest craze of my children. They saw it on TV, some science programme, and of course they had to try it!

First you take a few Mentos sweets - the more the better I believe.
Then you put all the Mentos in your mouth, and take a large swig of Coke...
.... And it explodes in your mouth and sprays everywhere.

When I think of some of the terrible things other mothers of 12, 15 & 18 year olds have to worry about, I'm so thankful that my biggest worry is how to get Coke stains out of a white sweatshirt!

First time on your blog, enjoyed it. I totally agree about the children. I have an 18 year old and a sixteen year old. Like you when I read the internet/papers and watch the tv
I thank God for them and pray for them.
Congratulations, a job well done!

You know what Ali I believe it's about to talking to them that in spite of the many infuences we remain their primary influence For me this sometimes means having to say yes to something I don't really like what (mainly because it's not something I would do or would have asked my mum to let me do) but on a scale of 1-10 how bad is it?
