One fine day, addie was eating breakfast...her favorite meal of the day....
She had mini pancakes this day and she put syrup under her armpits... and no...I did not witness this happening...lets move along...to like I don't know... FIVE HOURS LATER.
Adalyn comes running to me screaming bloody murder in the kitchen.
Dr. Spock's Law of Mom-ness says that I too, must freak out as well..
I just kept saying what what what what what!!?!?!? until she told me. ...because in some ways I am still that 16 year old babysitter that doesn't know WHAT to do when a child is in a pickle.
She stops crying and tells me that she put syrup on her armpit this morning and her shirt is stuck. So for whatever reason I am relieved until my Esthetician skills come racing into my brain..."she had breakfast five hours ago" "there is a cotton shirt STUCK to her ARMPIT" "omg, that one time I got my arm pits waxed it hurt SO BAD...shes going to hate me forever..." ".....quick like a bandaid?" "....water." So I soaked the shirt as much as possible while Addie just stared at me like I was some chinese water torturess. finally we got the shirt off.... But, her skin had seen better days. I did my best to get as much syrup off as I could without hurting her more and then powdered it. the story gets better. So she milks this arm pit thing all day. like all day. I have to continually reapply powder to her pit like forty times an hour...by the time her dad gets home, its not even red anymore... BUT ALAS... it is the first thing she tells him when she wakes up from her nap. and then he is the powder-er for the night... well... Jacob didn't put the powder out of Addie's reach before bed last night. So this morning:
baby powder. My thought when I saw it was "how is she still breathing???"
You could smell the stuff all through the house, all day. When confronted about the mess, she matter of factly said: I was FIXING it. With the powder. She was FIXING her room with the powder. THANK GOD it wasn't aquaphore, huh!? sheesh. Moral of the story: my kid put syrup on her arm pits...I didn't find out for five hours....and then she antiqued her whole room....and got away with it.
Because she's a princess. What should take away: wear a condom...and if you JUST can't do that...or you failed like me....just say no to messy things.
