My friend, Kristi, wins the award for best title. I posted the photo below on my personal FaceBook and "When Toddlers Attack" was the caption she left on it. So true!
The last time we bought powdered sugar, we bought a 50 pound bag. I'm sure you can see where this is going.
Thankfully, I've used a good amount of it...but apparently not enough!
The kids have figured out how to move the gate surrounding our open pantry. For the most part, the gate is just there as a visual deterrent. It really doesn't do much to keep them out though. Sadness. I remember the days when I could keep them contained.
So tonight, after dinner, the kids were playing in the living room, and Sean and I were both working at the kitchen table. Elijah came over and knocked their straw cups off of the table and onto the floor. I started helping him understand that he can't just do that and had to pick them all up. Meanwhile, Sean and I heard a commotion from the kitchen.
This is how it works. One child creates a distraction, while the others get into more trouble. I swear, they plot against us.
Sean got up to check on the girls while I finished with Elijah, and he found this:
That's powdered sugar. All over my floor. In my purse. They opened my wallet, pulled my money out, and dusted all of that with powdered sugar too.
By the time I was done, I had powdered sugar on me and all over the sink, so I had to do a second round of cleaning. Thanks, kids. That's exactly what I wanted to do with my evening.
The good news? I finally found the plastic pickle we were missing (that I didn't know was missing).
