Does your daughter steal? Mine doesn't- at least that's what I thought until yesterday afternoon.
Out for a walk, I notice something silver sitting in the bottom of the stroller. I pick it up and discover that it is a nice Bath & Body Works home fragrance. Ok. It's annoying but I toss it back into the bottom of the stroller so I can take it back to the store tomorrow.
We finish our walk and hang out in the front yard (my kids think this is the biggest treat) and enjoy the nice day. The next thing I know Brynns has the oil open and dumped out onto the stroller tray and seat.
Great! I wanted to pay the $7.50 for the miniscule vial of oil that you just dumped all over. So much for being able to return the dang thing. So I get some rags from the garage to clean up the mess and before I can get back she had her hands covered in oil. AND before I can run over there and clean her up she starts screaming like a banshee because she has rubbed it all in her EYES!
So now I have to herd 4 kids into the house from the front yard and rinse out Brynnlee's eyes. Seriously, has anyone tried to do this to a 20 month old?? She was kicking and screaming, squirming, pinching, pulling hair and clothes and tossing her head back and forth. I'm not sure really how much rinsing I actually did, but I prayed that it was good enough and of course read the label on the oil to see, indeed, that it was an eye iritant.
I was still worried because everytime I tried to wipe her eye she cried. So I then took her up to the bathroom placed her in the bathtub, soaking wet clothes and all, and started rinsing her eyes out with a squirt bottle. I think that worked and since she wasn't laying down she wasn't freaking out as much. I didn't have clumps of my hair removed from my scalp this time.
Needless to say, I waited until this morning to post this- just in case she was blind when she woke up. I think she's A-OK, so now we can look back and laugh, I think.
