How did my afternoon go? Interesting that you asked…
Sterling found one of Nana's fancy smelly candles – conveniently located within toddler hand reach.
After forcefully wrestling it from her, I put it on the kitchen island in hopes that I could distract her with something else. She quickly proved how futile of an effort that was by climbing onto the island and smashing the candle on the floor.
I was stuck with a conundrum.
How could I possibly keep her occupied while I cleaned up all the glass... My brilliant solution? Buckle her into her high chair. Seemed legit.
After five minutes of her screaming bloody murder, I thought perhaps if I gave her something to eat, it would keep her occupied.
We have been teaching her how to eat yogurt by herself, so in one of a whole series of bad parenting choices today, I decided to give her some yogurt to work on.
I swear, at the time it seemed like a totally viable option.
And the resulting mess was epic. I was fully alerted to my mistake when Sterling screamed "Ooooooh no! I messy mama, fun!"
SO earning my wine today...
