My two year old and four year old have been playing together better and better. At first, I was positive this was a wonderful miracle but now I’m not so sure. This morning, miracles of miracles they decided to work together to wash the outside of my cabinets and even my coffee table. I thought this was wonderful and turned my back for less than a minute.
All of a sudden, I hear from our play room – “My baby has a rash. She needs cream. Come on, Gabriel, let’s fix her.” I walked in to this scene:
This poor dolly not only does not look comfortable but that just happens to be my expensive organic diaper rash cream being applied to her bottom. I should rejoice that it is not Desitin which I have had a child apply to their face and hair but really? Please tell me I’m not the only one who has ended up with their kids have a party in syrup, applying crayon to my brand new door because they heard us say it needed to be painted, my son finger painting everything but his paper, or walking in on my son performing surgery on his sister with a plastic toy butter knife?
Sometimes I’m positive I live in the loony bin or at least the zoo. I think I clean up disasters more than I do anything else. Please tell me the same things happen in your house. Tweet
