Yesterday was one of “those” days. The kids did not nap, the kids really needed a nap, and so the kids were driving me crazy. I go to the bathroom for a few minutes of “me” time. I can already hear you laughing because there is no “me” time even in the bathroom as a parent. I do leave the bathroom door open, but that didn’t matter in what happened next. I hear them climbing over their baby gate, something being sprayed, and my son yelling “MY EYES!”
Kids are so much smarter than they let on to be. They pretend they don’t know how to clean up their toys or eat their dinner; however, they can figure out a way to climb over a baby gate, get the can of sunscreen out of the diaper bag, open the container, and proceed to spray it at their face and in their eyes … again all in just 2 minutes.
Now I’m back in the bathroom trying to get my son’s eyes washed out while pulling up my pants and flushing the toilet before who knows what else could go wrong in this story.
Thankfully everything calmed down after a bath and some cartoons. I finally got to finish my bathroom “break” when they were sound asleep that night.
