really...?!?

this was just one of those mornings...!

Maddux LOVES to play in the pantry. He loves to pull things out and put them back on the shelves. He loves to dig deep into a box of cereal and grab handfuls to eat at a time. He loves to make a mess...and today was NO exception.

So, he tried to pick up a brand new- full (48oz) bottle of vegetable oil, which was obviously too heavy for him. When it slipped, it fell on the tile, lid popped open and a massively thick layer of gooey oil spilled everywhere. Yes, I believe that about 35 oz of this bottle was all over my tile. Where in the world do you even start with something like that? After a whole roll of paper towels and a LOT of Dawn, I think I got it all up. I haven't seen a mess like this since my sophomore year of college when my roomies and I found a Costco size jug of liquid laundry detergent had fallen and cracked, spilling all over our linolium floors.
aaahh....the memories! :)
Now I have a large amount of a box of Raisin Bran strewn all over my rug.

I will be investing in some of these today :)
UPDATE:
5:18 pm...
5:20pm...This lock is worth the full $12.99!

Lucky you. :) Reading that made me grateful that I caught Kaida opening the full bottle of vegetable oil in the bedroom before she got it all the way open. At least your floor will be nice & shiny now. :) (try mopping it with vinegar+water, that works pretty well)
