Don't Cry Over Spilt Milk

Bookworm just came running over to me, "Mumma, Gypsy made a mess in the kitchen." Now this doesn't raise any alarms for me because she says this even if Gypsy has gotten out two books and has them both open at the same time. I replied, "Okay." She didn't leave obviously waiting for me to come running back with her. "Mumma, Gypsy made a big mess with her milk!" This got my attention. The past few days Gypsy has been turning her cup upside down and shaking milk out through the sippy. Not a big deal but something worth getting up to stop before I have too much of a mess on my floor.

This is the mess I found Gypsy sitting in:

Lord, please give me strength.

I grabbed some towels and soaked up what her pants didn't absorb. Change her diaper then took the wet stuff to the basement. While I was down there I found a dry skirt for her to wear. Take a wild guess where I found her when I came up to put the dry clothes on her.


She was standing on the kitchen chair about to climb onto the table! And of course this time Bookworm didn't think it necessary to tell me her sister was in danger!

I have been thinking about buying some ShamWOWs for a few weeks, I'm so getting some this weekend!

This one is going to give me a run for my money so I better start buying products that will save me money and time like the ShamWOW!
