Something Happens Every Day


Today when we weren't looking, do they ever do naughty things when you are? We came into the living room to an usually sweet smell. Mary had something like lotion on her hair and hands. But, we were unable to locate what and where the source was.

We were to find... later, wet sticky spots on furniture, the rug and other locations. Robin did some cleaning in the living room a bit later in the evening and found a LOT of gooey stuff in the corner of the room next to the couch. We still didn't know what it was.

Later when we were gathering the children for family prayers, Sarah sits next to Mom on the arm of the recliner holding a plastic bottle. It was a nearly empty bottle of expensive natural hair conditioner that had been purchased just the night before. Where it had been hiding all that time we'll never know.

Mary fell asleep before we were able to wash out the conditioner. But, she sure did smell good!

I feel a little better about the container of rice taken outside at 5 in the morning because my son's grandfather forgot to lock the room at night and dumped on the ground and a big bowl of soapy water on the grass... again at 5 in the morning.

Maybe that is what my kids room needs to improve the smell :)
