So having a toddler who is independent results in many times during the day when I discover him getting into something he shouldn't or making a mess somewhere.
The other day I was upstairs making supper and heard Elijah shrieking about a mess Isaac had made and then scolding Isaac.
It had been one of those days where nothing seemed to go quite right and I had already spent my day cleaning up messes Isaac had made after I had finished picking something up.
I was bracing myself for another disaster and taking nice deep breaths while I did that.
I was heading downstairs to investigate further and heard Elijah yelling to me that Isaac made a mess with "giant band-aids" and he threw them all over the bathroom.
While I was hurrying to assess the situation I was trying to think about what "giant band-aids" I had stored in the basement bathroom and why they were there.
As I rounded the corner into the bathroom I started laughing at the following scene:
Elijah was jumping up and down and yelling while Isaac
stood beaming at the beautiful mess he had just made, clapping and yelling Yah!
The "giant band-aids" happened to be a box of 50 panty liners!
I was laughing so hard I started crying and was afraid I would pee my pants, Elijah was upset at my reaction and between laughing and trying to breathe I told him they weren't band-aids.
He was very confused and I just told him they were for ladies and he didn't need to worry about it.
He wondered what kind of "owie" a lady would have that they needed such a big band-aid and why did it have a sticker on the opposite side that needed to fix the "owie"
Mostly he was worried he was going to have to clean up the mess I think, so he was very relieved when I told him I would do it.
I wish I would have taken a picture of the scene, but Isaac had already tossed a few "giant band-aids" into the toilet so I had to act quick in my clean up efforts.
Isaac once again lived up to his name providing laughter in our house.
I probably will have to use that code name on my grocery list when I need to restock too...giant band-aids just sounds like more fun.
