The Incredible Growing Shoes

Remember my post on Crocs? I mentioned that you could bake your Crocs down to size in the oven. So, this is what I found in the freezer on Saturday (sidenote: check out my Ben and Jerry's! They have Chunky Monkey here. The joys of Big City life are endless):

Here it is a little closer:

My kids figured since heat = shrinkage (this is where I expect NCS to come up with a clever Seinfeld quote) cool temps must bring about growth.
Crazy kids! :) Got to love 'em.

What's that under the crocs? Is that M's shoe? I tell you, by the time your kids are teenagers, you already have enough materials for a book! (If you don't have enough at this time yet!)

Have a great week ahead!

Chunky Monkey is a favorite around here too. In fact, it's Ant's other nickname.

That's awesome your kids are testing their hypothesis.

smartson would be so on that- then he would lead the group in an attmept to changes the crocs state fo matter from solid to liquid and gas-

Jerry: Elaine, do women know about shrinkage?
Elaine: Shrinkage? Like in laundry?
Ha, I'm so clever.

Well it does make sense, you'd have to cool the crocs to make them grow.
Love Chunky Monkey!

It looks like ground beef under the shoe. Crazy, nutty kids. Someday I'll have to do a quick-what about things kids have put in the family freezer.

What a great little scientific mind!

And YAY! in all caps for the Chunky Monkey!

Gabriela said...

Under the shoe? That would be a porkloin that won't get prepared until I stop getting sick.

NCS: I knew you'd come through.

Smartmama: yes I changed to beta. Why? I don't know, it won't even let me comment now. :(

That is HILARIOUS! I love how kids' minds work.

You guys sound like you're living the high life there! Chunky Monkey and all!

I'm a New York Super Chuck fan myself. It has been a while since I have eaten Chunky Monkey. Need to try it again.

That is so funny about the shoe. How big did they want them?
