While Mommy is blogging, the child is. . .

. . .putting foam stickers all over her legs.

Well, it kept her busy for a few minutes while I was working on the next masterpiece for this blog. I can be grateful that no permanent ink was used, no liquids were poured unnecessarily from one container to another, she didn't decide to create in the kitchen, she didn't take off for the neighbor's without telling me, she didn't use my checkbook for a scratch pad, etc.

And yes, all of those things have happened before.

Omigosh! I keep forgetting to give her the extra floam we have up in the cupboard. It was going to be part of her birthday present. Hmmm... Well, she is home from school today because the stickers didn't get taken off last night. I was out with a friend and Grandma and Grandpa either didn't realize or didn't think it was a problem. So... there was foam sticker goo all over her legs and she was freaking out when I was trying to peel it off. Picture an extra strength band aid. O-U-C-H! We are using lotion, baby oil and now a bath to get it off. She is only in school for half a day, so what's the point of taking her now?

Note to self: Foam stickers all over legs -- funny. Sticky crud not coming off of legs -- not funny.

Weeellllll ... maybe she won't do that particular thing again ... ouch. Of course, there are still hundreds of other nifty cool things to try.
