No, It's not play dough. It's GUM. Yes, I could have lived my life quite happily never knowing about it. No, gum is not allowed in the house. Unfortunately, I now have children old enough to buy their own gum( and old enough to get themselves to the store to get it). You might think that children old enough to get themselves to the store and buy their own gum with their own money would be old enough to NOT put their chewed up gum under the counter. I did, but obviously we are all wrong.
In the older kids defense, I do know that a smaller person stole some gum from one of the bigger kids. I'm quite sure she didn't steal this much gum in this many colors though!
