Look at this face. Is this the face of a child who leaves a trail of destruction in his wake? Beautiful blond hair. Big blue eyes. Adorable clefted chin. An angel.
Looks can be SO deceiving.
It’s boredom. I know it. He’s smart, even if he still isn’t talking and he’s two. He gets bored with his toys, and that’s when the trouble starts.
He was in rare form today. I cleaned up one disaster after another: this morning’s soggy cereal ground into the couch; Matchbox cars in the garbage disposal; a masterpiece painted in macaroni and cheese on the dining room wall; the list goes on and on. The pinnacle of today’s toddler-ness: when Jacob found the sticky fly glue stuff my hubby'd left in the kitchen...and glued his hands to his belly.
After trying an assortment of cleaners, including nail polish remover, gallons of liquid soap, and even a little WD40 (hubby’s idea) I went to my computer and opened a browser window.
Google: "Remove fly paper"
For anyone with toddlers who spend their days LOOKING for trouble, remember this: vegetable oil (apply liberally) works magic on gooey industrial adhesives!
Thank GOD for Google!
Funny though...wonder how long he'll smell like fried chicken...
