And Here is One Reason…

June 11, 2012

Why my poor blog is so neglected. No, it’s not because my little angels have not done anything exciting recently. Trust me; there is always some excitement around these parts. Rather the issue is trying to survive and clean up all the antics.


Today I was doing so well. I got my homework done and submitted for the week. I updated the church’s website and was working on Batter Chatter, a newsletter that I do for the California Cake Club.  The girls wanted a snack, so I told them to help themselves to the snack shelf (one shelf in the pantry devoted to crap they can eat).


They both chose Nutella snack pack things. These are a rare treat as they are expensive and they are chocolate for goodness sake. They contain little “bread sticks” in one side and a glob of Nutella for dipping on the other side.


Everything was fine and good until I hear the Big One, shriek, “EWWWWWWWW, You are DISGUSTING!” to which the Little One replied with giggles. I was honestly afraid to look because I obviously know the Little One all too well.


Here is what I saw:


So I told her to go into the bathroom and wash her face and hands…. With soap AND water. Yes, these specifics are in fact necessary. Fearing a huge water mess, I asked the Big One to please get the Little One a washcloth to help in the cleanup.


Something told me, I need to go check on the situation. There in the bathroom was the Little One happily scrubbing her face and hands with my white Turbie Twist thing that I use to dry my hair. Knowing that my exasperated sigh was not good the poor Big One immediately started apologizing, although I am not sure she truly understood my sigh.  She just knew I was on the edge. Poor kid was just trying to help. The turbie twist was probably in the washcloth stack and it is washable so it’s not a big deal, it’s just another one of “those things” that bring eternal joy to my daily tasks. I swapped out the Turbie Twist for an actual washcloth and all is right in my world. Well except for the Little One’s soaking wet clothes, the puddle of water on the bathroom floor, and the sticky faucet. *sigh*.


Did I mention the Little One has only been home about 15 minutes? Today was a “Grandma and Grandpa Day” so I could attempt to get some homework done.
