vaseline.

i bet you've been wondering about miles's latest and greatest adventures lately...
seeing as his best talent is destruction.
well after he opened his christmas presents a couple weeks early in 2 seconds flat, he decided he needed some more entertainment.
we've been putting vaseline on his lips because they are so dry and chapped.  well i left the vaseline on the counter after putting it on him.  he went to play in his room and i went to do laundry in the room next to him.  the next thing i know, he is running at me, crying, with his eyes squinted shut.  i finally realized that he was covered in vaseline.  and not just on his hands, but from head to toe.  it was so caked on, he couldn't open his eyes.  his hair was greased down and his clothes were destroyed.  after taking pictures of him (i'm a terrible mother), i took all his clothes off, gave him a bath, started the laundry and put on a movie for him while i went on a search for the scene of the crime.  of course there was vaseline on everything in his bedroom. the carpet.  his toys.  it looked like he had actually dunked an entire plastic elephant into the jar.  needless to say, i've been cleaning up vaseline for days.  and i just keep finding more.  do you know how hard it is to clean up vaseline?!

I've got some Chapstick I'd be willing to part with. I may be wrong, but I don't think he can do the same thing with it!!!!!!!!!!!! He's too funny. Auntie M.
