My kitchen was due for an oil change anyway


Shortening. Everywhere. It's been a week. As I was about to haul him away to the bathtub, my sense of humor returned and I took out the camera.

So please, everyone, so I stop feeling so picked on, tell me something crazy your toddler has done! I'll be back with a toddler-free post tomorrow, I promise.

  1. My daughter somehow managed to get a box of powdered sugar out of the pantry and then sprinkle it all over the couch, herself and the living room floor......I am told that this stage passes, but she is six going on seven and still tends to get into things.....although it is a less random mess....more like trying to make herself a sandwich mess, instead of asking for help.

  2. Oh my goodness! Well, I am sure he is well moisturized.

    My daughter has taken her diaper off during her nap time. I won't go into details- it is horrific.

  3. what has he not done...
    licked a complete stranger while he was playing puppy (luckily we found out she was my niece's kindergarten teacher... )

    when dd#2 was a toddler she smeared desitin all over a bedspread

    ds poured fingernail polish on the bathroom- thank God it was tile and came up easily.. but not out of the pad in front of my sink

  4. This was a few years ago, so Ashley was about 7 and Haley was about 3 or 4--pretty much past the tot stage, but anyway, I took a nap and woke up to the sound of them giggling and running back and forth down the hall. Then I notice one's in her bathing suit, and the other in her underwear, AND they look wet. So I get up and find a pool of water on the dining room floor. They had decided to make a water park in my kitchen/dining room, and were having a blast slip sliding away.

  5. I worked all weekend, but my husband reported that she was parading around with one of my bras around her neck. She also took some of her baby wipes and wiped off her exersaucer, probably because she sees me doing it.

  6. Well I've told you about the eggs and permanent marker on the floor. Did I mention that my four year old coated my 2 year old in vasaline once?

  7. Oh my! Glad your sense of humor returned long enough to snap a photo.

    Where oh where do I begin? Mo decided to help fill the cat food the other day. Kaia was helping him, and when she came to tell me Mo put too much in the dish, I didn't think anything of it. Until she hollered "Mom, Mo keeps putting more in!" Yep, about $5 worth of cat food all over the end table, and even down into the litter box.

    He dropped his poopy diaper onto the floor and took off running.

    He helped put the quickly defrosting 230+ pounds of beef away by taking it out of the freezer and throwing it into the box we just removed it from. Ok that doesn't sound too bad, but did I mention that some of the packages were still a bit bloody? Eww!

    Oh and his new fun thing is to eat an otter pop, then leave the empty wrapper on the floor somewhere, so the little bit left in drips out onto the carpet by the time I find it. The cream colored carpet, well cream colored with black, brown and now blue and green spots.

    I don't know about you, but Mo has decided to act like a two year old all of a sudden. Driving me crazy, for sure!

  9. My twins exploded a mixmaster in the middle of making an orange cake. You wouldn't believe the places I was scraping cake mix up from.

  10. I think I've blocked a lot out because I can't think of anything except the times my son painted with desitin. The first time he painted all over his sister's room. This was right before she was born and we had just painted and moved all the furniture in. The second time he painted mostly himself and his dresser.
    I guess my baby is now technically a toddler. :-( She likes to dump everything out. She gets her hands on anything, cheerios, gold fish, animal crackers, she will take the container, tip it over and shake it until every last crumb is out.
    Good times! :-)

  11. My three year old once smeared a whole tube of Desitine all over her cosin, bed, carpet and port-a-crib. Desitine doesn't come out of carpets, beds or port-a-cribs. It have been 6 years and sometimes I can still smell the Desitine when I pull out the port-a-crib!

  12. Shortening? Oooo, now that's a mess I don't envy.

    Princess's first big mess was when she discovered my makeup sitting on the bathroom counter when I had run downstairs to let the dogs out. She managed to open and dump out half a jar of Bare Essentials liner shadow in coffee bean all over the light blue carpet. Now it forever looks like someone knocked over a potted fern in there.

    BTW - I tagged you for a meme over at my place.

  13. Oh no! Don't feel bad, I've snapped plenty of photos while my kids were in the same situation. They've gotten into everything from infant formula to fish food!

    Cute pic!

  14. I have been there. I was pregnant with my third and my little one was trying to potty train. So, one day I smelled something coming from down stairs. As I walked down the stairs there was wall art, carpet art and couch art in the new Crayola Color called POOOOOOP!!! I was so livid. First, I threw up because I had extreme all day sickness with the pregnancy and smells really made me sick then I cleaned and threw up again. So, I feel you. I really do!

  15. This isn't my story, but a friend's. Like Sharon's daughter, my friend's 3 y.o. son tore open a bag of powdered sugar and spread it all over the house.

  16. My kids were suppose to be napping (isn't that when the bad things always happen?), but instead Crazy 1 had reached through the bars of the crib and coated Crazy 2 with A & D ointment. It was a fairly new tube, that was about 2/3 gone when I found them. I had to throw away his shirt, I could never get the grease marks out of it. I think I washed his hair @ least 7 times and it was still a little greasy! The crib sheet never looked quite the same. I am don't remember exactly how old they were when this happend, probably 15 months and 3. What a mess! lol!
