Encouraging Heroes. You can be one too.

Last week we had a power outage here at Earnest Parenting, and Hubby bought some dry ice to help protect our freezer items. This prompted the boys to research all sorts of dry ice experiments, but when we opened the freezer to get a chunk out for play study, it was already all melted away.  Hubby bought us another chunk and at dinner the other night, we had our very own dry ice centerpiece.  To make it even more fun, TechnoBoy added a drop of liquid dish soap.  Bubbles filled with the ‘smoke’ from dry ice are super fun!

After dinner, I was clearing the counter and noticed a bag with two bunches of bananas inside.  I emptied the bag and was putting the bananas away when I was horrified to see humongous black bruises on each bunch.  

Why on earth would Hubby buy bananas in such obviously bad shape??  Then it hit me. Hubby had set the bananas on the dry ice in the car on the way home!  The bag it was in wasn’t enough to insulate and the bananas froze and turned black on those spots. We had a good laugh, especially when I grabbed the camera and said, “I am so blogging this.”
