We are having a lazy day. Xavi has a stomach bug and I want him to rest…and not spread his germs to any other little kids…or worry about cleaning ‘lakes’ from his diapers in public. Never fun. It is the kind of lazy day where you glance at the clock on the stove and want to stick a thumbtack in your eye when you see it’s only 9:30 am. I’m not sure why it makes you want to blind yourself – it’s just that frustrating.
Seriously?! We have only been awake for 3 hours?!? (My childless readers are, at this very moment, saying, “Seriously?! You were already awake for 3 hours?!? Annnnddd, I’m never having kids. Kthanks.”)
When 11 am finally crept around (Whaddya got bricks tied to your ankles or somethin’, 11 o’ clock?!) I got online to make Lazy Day Lunch: GrubHub. As I finished placing the online lunch order for the three of us, I realized that Xavi hadn’t been in the living room for a few minutes. Then I noticed a slight perfumey odor. Visions of my girly body lotion filling the bathroom sink or the Febreze bottle, uncapped, lying on our bed flashed through my mind. I hit send on the order and ran out into the hallway. As I got to the front entryway, here is what I saw:
This face is soooo Xavi. Guilty, flirty, hopeful little smirk. We are in SUCH trouble.
I turned the corner…
In large quantities Odor Eater foot powder smells really good. Who knew? That doesn’t mean I was excited to see all of our shoes, hats, umbrellas and even clothing donations COVERED in the stuff. On the bright side, the carpeted stairs are a hip ‘dusty Nantucket red’ now and will probably be smelling fresh long after we move out.
I took off Xavi’s powdered clothes and wiped down his feet and then started on the floor…
By the time I got it all cleaned up Xavi had accomplished several new tasks…this time, helpful ones. Thank God.
Kidding. I put it back together. 6 times. He is actually on the verge of taking at apart again in this photo.
And this is Xavi with a nasty stomach bug…you should see him on a healthy day.
