I went to Blissdom, a blog conference here, in Dallas this past weekend, and came back ready to take over the world (as I do after all blog conferences). Step one to taking over the world was to come up with some way to entertain the kids today… some way worthy of a mom who would do such things like take over the world. Moms who take over the world make stuff, right?

So I made a giant mess…

Which resulted in about a pound of Peanut Butter Honey play dough.

I used a recipe given to me by the National Honey Board. They had a booth at Blissdom, and I was drawn in by their free honey sticks. Be sure, NOTHING edible was safe from my pregnant prowl.

Kendall found the pamphlet full of recipes when I got home and was insistent on making this stuff. I was just relieved to discover we actually had all the ingredients: peanut butter, honey, powdered sugar, and vanilla extract.

You can check out the full recipe for Peanut Butter Honey play dough, including directions, on the National Honey Board’s website here. 

Ahhh, yes… operation Take Over The World was off to a good start.

But first, a reminder to the children not to eat the play dough.

“At least  not yet, dude. Let’s play with it for a few minutes… Okay, okay, you can eat it. Just promise me that if you lick it, you’ll just go ahead and eat it.”

About that time, I saw a tweet come through on my phone. I…  little ol’ me… @BabyRabies was listed as one of TIME Magazine’s Top 140 Twitter Feeds of 2013. 


So convenient.

I headed to the office to commence Epic Awesome Monday, as the kids climbed down from the table to tend to other things, mainly the 1 millionth episode of Wonder Pets. I simply wanted to share my good news with the world (so it could prepare for my takeover). A few minutes later, I headed back to check on the kids and clean up the mess.

I found my elderly English Mastiff Bruno hovered over the tiniest remnants of what was one pound of peanut butter honey play dough, licking his chops. I let out an exasperated sigh/growl/roar of rage, “BRUNOOOOOOO!” He looked at me smugly, walked to the couch, and assumed the “I ate your kids’ play dough and I give no fucks” position.

*sigh* Just a typical day in the life of me. Wake up wanting to take over the world, make giant mess, bestowed giant honor, reminded by my dog that I live in the real world… all before lunch.

If anyone needs me, I’ll be searching for a gas mask to protect myself from the noxious farts coming out of my dog’s butt right now. I’m very afraid he will give many fucks about that pound of play dough real soon when it starts tearing him apart from the inside.

  1. Congratulations on the Time honor. That is really freaking impressive.

    Also, did you try any of that edible play dough before the dog go to it? Because my mom used to make it (although I seem to remember it being made with powdered milk instead of powdered sugar… but who knows) and it is SO delicious.

  2. I didn’t know you were there, too! I came to your BlogHer panel and now think you are the coolest. I hope you had a great time at BlissDom! I did, except for the part where I said none of this to you in person.

  3. Awesome awesome! Wonderful news. Congratulations.

    Wow, one pound of pb playdough eaten by dog. That’s amazing in its own right.

  4. I’d personally favor Google. Both FB and Google would benefit from it, but we would probably benefit more from Google taking it over. In the case of Google+ it is just a matter of time. Facebook was lucky it didn’t definitely should compete with something as “good” as facebook, the competition was just lacking a lot of features and a global approach.Google+ is outstanding to Facebook, nevertheless it has a bigger challenge to have popular.Just have a look at VHS and Betamax. Betamax was better but lost due to bad marketing/licensing.Danny recently posted..Black & Decker NPP2018 18-Volt Cordless Electric Pole Chain Saw

  5. I¡¯m not that much of a online reader to be honest but your sites really nice, keep it up! I’ll go ahead and bookmark your website to come back later. All the best

  • There are so many fresh faces here, and I’m thrilled! My 15 month old is currently napping ON ME so I thought I’d use this as an opportunity to introduce myself and share more about Baby Rabies to you newcomers. 🤗 👋🏻 I’m Jill Krause, mom of 4 (nearly 10 year old son Kendall, 7 year old daughter Leyna, 4.5 year old son Lowell- we call him LoLo a lot, and 15 month old son Wallace). I’m married to Scott, my college sweetheart- MIZZOU 🐯 👶
Baby Rabies is what happens when your baby fever is incurable. And that’s what happened to me 11 years ago when I bought BabyRabies.com and decided to blog anonymously about my secret and sudden obsession with conceiving my first baby. 👬🤱 The logo is a play on a positive pregnancy test, but we love and embrace all kinds of families and caregivers around here, no matter how they came together. 💖
It is my greatest wish that this space is inclusive and supportive and uplifting, without feeling sanctimonious or void of humor. We don’t take ourselves too seriously. We are always open to improving ourselves, but perfection is never the goal. 🏞
I’m currently traveling the country in an RV with my husband and 4 kids. We sold our dream house last year to find our dream life. We are documenting that at @happy.loud.life So if you see pictures pop up and wonder why we spend so much time in an RV or why our baby has, like, 4 outfits, or why we seem to go on a ton of vacations- that’s why. 😆 ❓
Are you new here? I’d love if you’d introduce yourself below! ✨
  • I could hug whoever invented the puddle jumper floaties. Kids have no idea the torture we endured with blow up floatie wings back in the day. I can still smell the plastic and hear the awful noise they made when you had to take them off after you got wet.
  • Spring training for summer starts now. 🌞
  • Pic unrelated, but it's a cute baby and the thing I want to tell you about is super relevant if you're into babies! Tonight is the countdown to make sure you name is in for the over $3000 in awesomeness that one lucky someone is going to get! Follow the link in our bio before midnight tonight to see what's up! 🙌🏻❤️⬅️
