Fluff festival


Yesterday we took the kids, in honor of our 11th wedding anniversary, to the Union Square "What the Fluff" festival. Fluff - that white, marshmallow spread often paired with peanut butter to make a fluffernutter sandwich - was invented in Somerville.

I would like to note the kid in the photo isn't one of mine. Blessedly the last thing they would want to do is jump into a kiddie pool full of melted marshmallows, particularly with a crowd watching. While waiting in line to buy a fluffernutter sandwich on Wonderbread the mother of said kid asked for trash bags to cover her all her Fluff-covered kids so she could "get them home in the car".

Should've thought of that before you gave them permission to jump in.

Hi Alison-
I found you thru blogher and have been poking around your site. I also caught the comment you left over at blogher about juggling the work/family thing. I am working on developing a community blog/podcast for moms who do just that. Actually it's moms juggling everything we juggle- not just work as some of us stay home. In any case we are looking for new voices! If you want to hear more drop me a line at hatchew at hotmail dot com.
