There has been an outpouring of concern for Rory and his temporarily green iridescent franks and beans. He is fine. All is back to normal in regards to color and there has been no additional pain or discomfort for the boy.
The posts over the next week will be most likely be considerably shorter in nature. We are heading back to Iowa for about 5 days so I will be busy packing, traveling and then unpacking. This leads me bad news #2.
We had some errands to run today to get ready for our trip so it’s one of those days that Kamryn claims is “Not fun at all”. We ran to Costco, Target, the library and somewhere else, that I can’t seem to recall. I also had to get a quick run in this morning.
I picked up some of those little travel bottles to put shampoo in while at Target. I don’t know what they do to the samples of shampoo and conditioner, but it never seems like it’s the same stuff when I buy those little bottles. I used to take all of the hotel toiletries and then use them when I travel, but they are horrendous. The lotion is like water, the conditioner doesn’t come close to conditioning and the shampoo barely gets sudsy.
This time I was filling up my own bottles with my own shampoo and conditioner so I don’t have to sit for 30 minutes trying to get the knots out of my hair after a shower. I was almost out of both shampoo and conditioner – it was the perfect amount to fill my little travel bottles. I had them balanced on top of the little containers with a steady stream of product flowing in.
Rory was incredibly curious about this process, but I kicked him out of the bathroom and told him to stay out. He would sneak back there to check things out on occasion, but actually had the self control not to touch anything. Once I was sure I had every last drop of shampoo and conditioner out of the big bottles, I screwed the lids on my little containers and left them, along with all of my other toiletries that are going to be packed, on the chest in my room.
Rory was back playing in his room, or so I thought, when he came out and said he liked to drink shampoo. He was licking his lips and I asked him if he drank my shampoo. He said, “Yeah, Mama! It’s yummy! I love it!”
Sure as shit, I went back to find the lid of my travel bottle covered in spit and shampoo. I get the Costco, gluten free, vegan shampoo so I assume it’s safe for 3 year old consumption.
