Our Little Walking Disaster

So after our neighborhood food drive, my wood floors were a disaster. It isn't a big deal. It is just what happens when lots of people walk through after walking to our house in the snow. So that night I mopped. It was looking unusually good. But then Quinn woke up. Let the fun begin. Gavin had just got home from kindergarten and was so hungry he was going to DIE. So I made him hot dogs (the standard request for lunch). They were cut up on a plate with ketchup and a glass of apple juice. On a place mat. I go to the laundry room to fold clothes. In walks Quinn. Who LOVES hot dogs and ketchup. So she pulls off the place mat.



I heard noise but didn't realize what was happening. After a minute, I come to check on her. This is what I found. Her cheeks full of hot dogs, her feet sopping wet in apple juice, and my feshly mopped floor - no longer looking so good. As I try to clean it up, she toddles off. I hear splashing. She is in the toilet in the laundry room. Seriously? Enough already.

So I put her in her high chair with her own plate. And as always, she goes straight for the ketchup. She had already had enough hot dogs off the floor, anyway.

What happened to my sweet little baby?

Ha Ha Ha. I can laugh b/c it didn't happen to me. I really should laugh when it does happen to me though. I think I get angry too much. I want to meet Quinn again. She is a whole new person now!

The look on her face is priceless....She was probably wishing that she wouldn't have made those hot dogs fall on your beautifully clean floor either, not because the floor was clean, but because she wanted to eat them. Thanks for grabbing your camera before you cleaned it up. We all need to remember to grab our cameras more often.

Oh my gosh, but she's so cute you can't really get mad at that face! Can you...? Thanks for the laugh. Ha, and I like Ken's comment above, hahaha.

Oh, that so sounds like my house! That's why I so rarely mop. (I probably shouldn't have admitted that.)

I think when she hit the toilet you should have handed her the soap! And while I am laughing very hard at this post, I am feeling for you...been there, and then I realize what a cute little vest you have on her, and my thoughts move on to...can I get me one of those!
