Did it snow in your kitchen last week?
...because it did in mine! Yes, it was one of those moments when I caught sight of what had happened as I strolled down the hall from the bedroom and just gasped. I had been back in my room just for a few minutes hanging up some clothes and putting away laundry that I had folded. Micah found the corn starch in the pantry and had a blast with it. My mom had a good suggestion:put things like this in a ziploc bag!
What can you do? I can't discipline him or scold him. He was just having fun.
I couldn't do anything but just stare for a few minutes until I was snapped back into the reality that I needed to start cleaning it up. It was EVERYWHERE! On the countertops, on the refrigerator, under the dishwasher, and in various crevices and cracks. First, I got the broom and then realized I really needed to get Micah cleaned up before he scattered it further all over the house. So, I took him to get a bath, meanwhile not even thinking about leaving the broom out. When I came out I found Gabriel wearing my mary jane shoes and pushing the cornstarch with broom.
