No Washing Her Mouth With Soap

October 9, 2008

So the Little One is not going to be the type that I can threaten her with washing her mouth out with soap. How on Earth would I know that? Well for the last two days it’s been nice enough outside to play in the back yard. We are giving the puppy some much needed exercise and getting the girls outside for some fresh air.

We have a large variety of bubble-playing toys. We have bubble machines, small bubble wands, giant bubble wands and the “no-spill” containers. So I gave the Little One a “no-spill” container. She is still a bit little for bubble blowing coordination, but not for lack of trying. She gets the concept. She dips the wand, brings it to her lips and blows. Unfortunately, instead of just holding the wand just beyond her lips, she usually puts it on her lips or even in her mouth. Then she blows with all her might.

The result is usually bubbles, but it’s more slobber bubbles than actual bubbles. I guess she decided that the wand tastes pretty good to her after being dipped in the bubble solution (BLECH!). So now each time I give her a “no-spill” container she tries to drink the bubble solution instead of even attempting to blow bubbles.

You moms out there know that “no-spill” really means that it will be a nice slow trickle that comes out. Apparently it’s just enough to quench the Little One’s “thirst.”

    yuck! We do the same thing – bubble wands ON lips, and then funny faces and “taste” (w/a frown), then “mommy do it”!

    My little D does the exact same thing! It’s gross and funny all at the same time.
