Step 1: Pitch a gigantic fit. Make it a good one. Lots of sighing, eye rolling and feet stomping, please.
Step 2: Dramatically declare all things play doh banned from your home because your heathen children can’t keep the play doh on the table and off the carpet.
Step 3: Consult your most trusted adviser, Uncle Google, by searching for “How to get play doh out of carpet“.
Step 4: Try this method with moderate success.
Step 5: Sigh a little more.
Step 6: Feel a little tweak in your gut (heart? head? stomach?). What is this feeling? Guilt? Did you overreact?
Step 7: Hear the gentle prompting. Listen to God working on your heart.
Step 8: Remember that your house is home to 2 little boys, 1 manly-man and 1 giant dirty dog. At least play doh doesn’t stink.
Step 9: Notice that the play doh stain looks a little like a sunflower. Remember that you like sunflowers.
Step 10: Apologize to your heathen children and drag the play doh in from the garage.
