In the interest of full disclosure, after the hideous Eucerin incident on Tuesday, there was another unfortunate occurrence later that evening.
I keep all of Jensen’s lotions on the nose bleed section of his bookshelf, as you well know. Not that that keeps him from getting at them, but it will slow him slightly.
On Tuesday night, I put the box, containing various lotions, Desitin, and coconut oil on his changing table for the after-bath-grease-him-down-like-a-pig nightly event. It’s sort of like the rodeo, but without the benefit of cotton candy.
Fiddledaddy released him into the wild without my noticing. Which tells you I may have been face down on the linoleum. Young Jensen discovered the jar of coconut oil. And lubricated the carpeting with it. The same carpeting that had been saturated with Eucerin earlier in the day.
Something tells me that we need to rip out the carpet in his room, and install a drain.
Now, when my feet are feeling a little cracked and dry, I head to Jensen’s room and grind them into the carpeting. It acts as both a callous remover and foot lubricant. If only I could market it.
I’m just practical like that.
Interestingly, a parenting website just wrote a review on Fiddledeedee. I was a little afraid to look. If I were a new parent, or thinking about becoming a parent, and I were to read my blog, well, I would seriously consider eating my young.
Lots of species do it.
I was pleasantly surprised to see that The Parents Overnight Blog gave Fiddledeedee a very very nice review. And it made me smile. Go check this site out. They are posting some really terrific articles on all facets of parenting.
And lastly, thank you ever so much for your HILARIOUS comments this week. I really needed that. It’s been a rather trying week. You all have made me feel MUCH better about my own parenting foibles. It’s always good to know that I’m not alone in my sinking boat.
