Messes Children Make

Motherhood Is a Mess! The Flour Incident

This is what happens when you are three years old and you climb up the cabinet to toss what you think is a bag of popcorn to your sister and it explodes..

I was on a work-related call when my daughter came in and said her brother spilled some flour. I told her no worries, I'd vacuum it up once I was off the phone...then I walked into this. My children were having such a blast I let them finish playing forgetting that when flour mixes with water it makes paste (or pasta)! And, that's what happened when I put them in the tub! It took oil and over an hour to comb the goo out of their hair which was part of the two plus hour clean-up, but how often can you really just be a kid? We are still finding bits of flour dust around the kitchen, but my son and daughter will always have these photos and fun memories.

Instead of getting bent out of shape about the messes our kids inevitably make, let's upload our pictures, share memories, and compare the damages in the Motherhood Is a Mess! group over at the Lil Community! Your photos may be featured on LilSugar!
