Today started off wonderfully. The cellist went off to school, and the ladybug and I began to eat breakfast. About mid morning, I was working a bit on some fundraising items for the cellists school and I realized that I had not heard a PEEP from the ladybug. Now, most non parents are going to be perplexed and say – “Well isn’t that a GOOD thing?” Um, no my friends it is not. It is basically the time where you should start panicking to the point of hyperventilation. WHY? Because it means that the toddler is either in the toilet, the Vaseline – or some other salve, or the baby powder. And guess what? Mama knows best because true to form, Vaseline was being scooped out as I walked into the living room (just ONE room over from where the computer is) and saw her gleefully spreading it all over her hair, her face, her babylegs and her shoes.
– I’ll wait while you finish laughing –
So what is the first thing I do after squealing out NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO and scaring the heebie jeebies out of her? I go for my camera – and pictures will be posted after the incriminated has fallen into slumber.
