Don't Look Away for Even a Second!

Friday, May 1, 2009

My little angel... my little precious... my little sweetie-pie... my little---shameful child! Well, maybe it was my fault for not being on her every second of the day yesterday, but darn it... we were having a good day until nap time. Wow, did it go downhill from there or what!?!?

My little child of perfection decided she didn't want to take a nap... not exactly the most astonishing decision she's ever made... but, apparently she got bored. VERY BORED. She decided to powder one of her baby doll's diapers. Except she didn't just powder the diaper. She powdered her entire room. And apparently, that wasn't to her liking. She then proceeded to smear petroleum jelly on her carpet... and her face - sure wish I'd have taken a picture of that! She had quite a powder-coated petroleum jelly beard when I found her. But, in all of her wisdom, I believe it donned on her at some point that the mess she'd made on her floor just might get her in trouble, so apparently, she had also tried to clean up all the goo off her floor by pouring water on it. OH GEEZ KID - ARE YOU TRYING TO GET A SPANKING OR WHAT!?!?

Well, it's mostly cleaned up now, but the floor is still wet and the petroleum jelly is still coating some of the carpet... that stuff is almost impossible to clean!

Anyone want to have a 2 1/2 yr old? ;-)

I doubt this is what you want to hear, but that is hilarious!

We'll definitely have to remember to keep the powder and jelly way out of her reach! Sorry it happened to you, but thanks for the warning.

I don't know if it would work, how it would affect the carpeting, or if you would even want to try it, but have you thought about trying mineral spirits to cut through the petroleum jelly?
