What a Mess!





Hand lotion plus boy
Not a good combination
How do you not laugh?


These are photos of Liam after he managed to open a hand lotion up and fling it all over himself and my armoire. He was alone for about 4 minutes while I read blogs checked the online news and made a terrible mess all over the furniture, floor and his freshly bathed body. That child is always wreaking havoc! Of course, I ran for the camera as my daughter stood aside and cackled so what lesson did we teach him?

This boy may be the death of me yet....

On another note, Happy Independence Day!

You have to laugh....because if you don't you'll go insane.

Of course, because you have nothing to but laugh is also a sign of insanity, but what are ya gonna do?

Hang in there. Some babysitting advice: if you belong to a church, talk to your youth director. They'll hook you up. :)

Ha! I laughed so loud at that. You're right, how can you NOT?

*Note to self: hide the lotion right NOW*.

Happy 4th to you and yours Toni. Have a blast (not literally of course)! :)

LOL!! At least it's not something that stains. I would have ran for the camera too.

Oh. My. Too cute since I'm not the one who has to clean it up, and it's not my lotion. Nicely haiku'd. :)

Oh Yes! It is AMAZING what they can do in just seconds! Thank goodness for blogging - My older kids would have gotten spankings for things the babies get photo ops and stern lectures about. Those few cool down moments sure make things more bearable.

Hope you don't slip out of your crocs now. :) Hilarious! So cute with the lotion on the head!

Now he's cute AND velvety soft!

Gotta love a mom who will grab her camera instead of getting mad!!

Great PSF! Hope your 4th was a great one!

You just have to laugh at these things, i can no longer leave lotion anywhere the kids might find it so we get into a similar situation (and why do kids always do these things AFTER bathtime)

Rachael said...

Oh my gosh. I am glad my lotion is all very high up.

Robyn said...

It is funny how we want to catch the "bad" moments too isn't it.

Nap Warden said...

Oh no! Poor little sweetie had no idea it wasn't a toy;)

Hope you had a great 4th!

Kristi said...

Ugh...what a mess. Aren't you glad you have a blog on which to share these stories?

Jacki said...

Why is it that our first reaction is to grab the camera before we clean up the messes they make??

Chris Osborne said...

That's just cute.

UGH!! I remember going to marinate chicken and coming back to a sprinkle of powder in every crevice... in each shoe, in the plastic kitchen oven, under each stuffed animal... I just stood there and bawled! But I admit that I took pictures of each misadventure, because I would have forgotten. (Yeah, that and I needed proof for the future!)
