News Flash

If you eat the blue palette out of a watercolor set, you will have beautiful peacock blue/green poop the next day. Just something to think about.

Also, little kid can now open the child safety devices on all of the cabinets. Of course, he is most attracted to the cleaning supply cabinet and apparently knows how to work spray bottles. We're either going to have to watch him better or get rid of all of the cleaning supplies. So today I guess I'm getting rid of all of the cleaning supplies (we don't use them anyway).

This morning he dumped his drinkable yogurt onto the floor so that he could try to lick it up. On purpose.

What am I going to do??

You can use a solution of vinegar and water (50/50). It stinks at first, but when it dries it actually absorbs odors in the air so your house will smell better. Plus, it's safe for Little Kid to drink.

The other day my Baby Boy (with two knoggin knots from the slide) was splashing in the puddles at the park and all the other kids came and were staring in amazement and jealousy. That was my first clue that I'm not supposed to let my kid wade up to his knees in water!Second clue the horror on the face of the better Moms (yeah I bet if the kids voted I would win that contest hands down!)

After that I started thinking about everyday suiting him up with a life jacket and one of those foam helmets and a global tracking system strapped to his back. Of course I can't be trusted to do this EVERY day.

So, I have decided to sit back enjoy watching my boy learn about his world! Let him explore and learn what works and what doesn't.
Eating yogurt off the floor may be fun once but not on a regular basis.

Now the cleaning supply could just move them to a higher shelf no need to discard...unless you are doing this as a set-up to have an excuse to go shopping in the future!

No one told me that part of being a mom included never ending clean-up of yogurt and soggy cereal. I also find gooey messes around the house in the most random of places. Not to mention when she hid candy around the house to feed the poor ants. THAT was fun to clean up.

yogurt is also a complete bitch to get out of carpet

Did you take a photo of the poop? If so please post it on babycenter for all of us to see :) I actually asked what color the poo would be today so you answered my question. Lovely.

I say get rid of the cleaning supplies that just gives you another reason to have a maid she will have her own!

Ever try to clean yogurt off of the dog? My version of lk wanted to share his yogurt with the dog last weekend...after he'd poured some on the dog's head, he realized that the dog couldn't get it from there, so he wanted to help and started to scoop it off with his spoon. (And put what he was able to remove into his mouth?) Where was I during all of this? Probably off making sure staplers and other dangerous objects were within said kid's reach. :)

Last day of what am I going to do with the spare 3 minutes a day that was taken up by 3 votes a day?

Well, first of all, put his toys in the locked cabinets. If he's going to get in there anyway, might as well make it worth the effort.

As for eating off the floor....As long as he licks it up, what's the harm? The floor might come out cleaner than it was before.

1. Avoid the Activa yogurt then, because that shit stinks, even before it dries in the hair and carpet.

2. We keep all two of our cleaning things on top of the fridge in purty baskets. That way we don't have to look at that crap either, and baby has no idea they even exist. That'll help us later...drugs don't exist, so we don't need to talk about them. Sex either.

I made my own cleaners (vinegar, water, some essential oils, and just a few drops of soap). Get's the job done and if Celia decides to drink it, she won't die.

And she's already proved that if she decides to spray is all over my brand new red rug, it would bleach it out like my old kitchen cleaner would have.
