Abby-"Mom, Madison ate all of the cinnamon bread. She did, she ate it all gone."
Me- "Let me smell your mouth."
Abby - (without letting me near her face) "Well, I just had one piece, and Madison had like five pieces."
Me-"Madison, did you brush your teeth and hands?"
Me -"Let me smell your mouth and hands."
Madison- (as she runs back to the bathroom) "Ok, ok, ok, ok..."
A few days ago:
I smelled the ominous smell of some sort of cleaning supply, and I was clearly not cleaning. I ran upstairs.
Me- huge gasp, "Chase, what are you doing spraying Goo Gone all over your feet." and all over the carpet by the way...
Chase - "I'n just cleaning them."
Me- (in a panic, how on earth did he get that!) "Did you put it in your mouth?"
Chase- "Um no, um yes, um no."
Me- throwing him in the bath tub "Open your mouth this instant and let me smell"
Chase - "Ok"
He opened his mouth wide and I was more than relieved to smell nothing more than Cinnamon Toast Crunch on his sweet breath! What a relief. Time to childproof everything again, especially since Chase has a certain attraction to knives, scissors (see the following pic), sticks and, apparently, cleaning products. He looks so innocent. Do not be deceived!
Anyone else have close calls with cleaning products, unwanted haircuts, or tricky ways to get the truth out of their little ones? Please share.
