Linking with Rachel this morning for another reality check..
I’m sure you know these moments. Little ones playing upstairs, someone remarks about how well they get along. After a while you notice it’s gone awfully quiet so you go up to check.
I’ve had plenty of moments like this, and more often than not haven been relieved to find Kaya sitting in his room looking at a book or just playing quietly.
But last weekend I opened the bathroom door to find Kaya and his little friend attempting to wash off the vaseline they’d covered themselves in. Covered.
Have you ever tried washing vaseline out of hair?
We popped them both in the bath, and sent the daddies off to check on google how to get the stuff out. Clumps of it.
Washing up liquid does a decent job, by the way, should you ever need that information.
The clothes are still bundled up in the laundry basket, I’m not sure if I’ll get it all out.
Every now and then I’ll open a drawer or touch a door and still find a vaseline smear.
The next morning, having a shower in a tub that was still sporting a nice slippery layer of vaseline residue, I smiled to myself.
Those are the funny moments we’ll never forget.
“Do you remember when they climbed up a chair and got the vaseline tub from the shelf?”
I have a book where I keep notes about Kaya’s milestones, but also the little things. Something he said, something he did. Funny, serious, extraordinary and everyday things. This one’s certainly one of them. Something to remember and smile about.
Have a good Monday and a happy start to your week.
