Our “New Fun Thing” of the week

Piper went back to the pediatrician yesterday to see if we could discontinue her oxygen during the day.  She was using a half liter when we discharged, so I was hoping that we could be off by now.

We left with her turned up to 1 or 1 1/2 liters.  That was not what I was anticipating.  She got a Therapep to use that she was really good at- all the whistle blowing for speech therapy paid off!  I’m glad that we had an appointment Thursday instead of waiting until after the weekend.

But, since Piper’s still on a leash, I was trying to think of something to do outdoors (the weather is gorgeous!) but where she wouldn’t be tempted to run around too much. 

So, this week we did make-your-own sidewalk paint.  Equal parts corn starch and water with food coloring.  I got cheapie paint brushes from Walmart and they went to town!  For the record- I’m not sure why I took the time to make twelve separate colors- within about three minutes they were all about the same color, but they were pretty to start!












  1. how well did that wash out of clothing???

  2. Very cool! So she's still on oxygen? Lucas is too but he is almost down to 1/2 a liter now. I'm hoping just a couple more days. Your girls are gorgeous and we need to meet up again soon!

  3. Love the idea!!! I definitely need to try this with the girls! How well did it come out of the clothes, though?!?!
