Ivory Soap in the Microwave FAIL

1

There’s a really great collection of pictures on Pinterest, if you search “Ivory Soap Experiment”, that entice you to pop a bar in your own microwave and begin having some hands on fun with the kids. The kids and I were all pretty excited to give it a try ourselves. Soap in the microwave!? Let’s go!!

We tried to do the Ivory soap in the microwave experiment. We failed. Who knows why. It's ok to fail once in a while. Always remember that.

Whenever I am going to try something I’ve seen on Pinterest, I usually check a few different pages before I proceed. I like to see what each person has to say, explore some of the comments left by their readers, and compile my own list of ingredients and directions based on the combination of what I find. I did the same thing this time. Simple as it is.

Apparently, whatever I went with, was the wrong combo. As an avid Pinterest goer, who actually tries what I pin, I have officially achieved a major FAIL!

I have no idea what happened. But we didn’t get large and puffy (well, we did until we opened the door and it went flat). We didn’t get pliable and able to mold. We didn’t get anything awesome, just a crumbly pile of soap scrapings. So we added water and the kids squished it through their fingers for a while. Clean mess.

I just wanted to channel the core value and the reason I started this blog in the first place. I am not perfect, I am real. Things don’t always run smooth, and I fail sometimes. Just like everyone else. I often have people (online and off) tell me how I have things together, in order, and I achieve so much. I try, but I am not anything special. I don’t post about every mishap, nor do I aim to go out into the world showing off my flaws, but please remember…. even the most put together woman/mother/person has their ways in which they fall short at times. It’s not only normal, it’s healthy. Keep being your awesome self!
