While I was unloading groceries today, Corrie somehow got her hands on a tube of A&D diaper rash ointment. Would you like to guess what a one year old does with a tube of greasy mess? Spreads it all over a section of the kitchen floor, of course. And as I walked around the room putting away groceries, oblivious to what was going on (mysterious, sticky spots on my kitchen floor are absolutely NOTHING out of the ordinary around here), I tracked the stuff all over the kitchen. Guess what? A&D Ointment doesn’t wipe up easily. Actually, A&D Ointment doesn’t wipe up at all. For the rest of the time we own this house, I believe there is going to be a thin, sticky film of the stuff covering my floor. We are finding globs of A&D on anything that has touched the floor today. When Hubs picked up a 12-pack of diet Coke that had been sitting on the floor, he said, "What is this sticky stuff on the box… *sniff, sniff*…is that diaper rash medicine?" (How much do I love this man that he recognizes the smell of diaper rash medicine? What a keeper.)
But I’m looking on the bright side: the next time she has a diaper rash, I can just put her naked little booty on the floor and tell her to scoot.
