Naptime hazards

Never lay down with your 2-year old if you’re trying to get her to take a nap. Because chances are you will be the one to fall asleep while she merrily skips through the house reeking havoc with something or another. Especially with the baby powder! Nothing like covering the entire kitchen floor in a fresh layer of (softer than silk but slicker than a greased pig) powder.

She will then track her cute itty bitty footprints all over the house and under the noses of her oblivious five other siblings without them noticing a single thing amiss. After about 10 minutes of this the 6-year old will notice the floor is a bit more hazardous to walk on and will then come wake up mom.

I think I’m going to be pushing powder for a whole week. This act alone has convinced me that my Dream On room for the week will have to be the Kitchen. Tune in Friday to see if I manage to make the room streak free by then.

Wow, she makes Gavin look like a saint! (Although I promise you he is far from it... we have our own set of mischeivous/sneaky/messy incidents around here, too!)

It's gonna take weeks to get rid of it. My husband is still traumatized by the time I used it to try to get the creaks out of our wood floors.
