If you know me, I have NEVER given Hannah full reign of the white glue. A glue stick sure, not the white glue, it's too messy, and I am convinced she will suck it dry.
This is what happened:
Ethan was screaming, had been screaming all morning, he wanted to be held, when I held him he wanted to be put down. He's got the stomach flu so I am trying to make him feel better but I was at a loss yesterday as to what would help. He was a raving lunatic every time he saw food so I knew he was hungry. But he couldn't keep his toast down earlier, so I was being very careful what I was feeding him despite what he might have wanted.
Hannah being a typical 2 year old wanted mommy attention and wanted to play with Ethan. She was frustrated when neither happened.
The house was a mess.
Mommy was tired and had a HUGE migraine.
ENTER THE GLUE
I ended up throwing the screaming Ethan in the play pen. I figure if he was going to scream, it might as well not be in my ear. Buckled Hannah into her highchair and put her bib on. I gave her a piece of paper, a handful of cotton balls, and the bottle of glue.
She looked at me and said 3 words. "Mommy do it", she knows how we do things around here. I told her she could do and she didn't look back. Thankfully, this entertained her for awhile, she did not eat the glue, and most surprisingly, she did not make a mess.
I found the CLOSET.....Actually, the Tylenol and then I fed Ethan.
Turns out he has been cranky because he is teething his top front teeth that with being sick. Would wouldn't be cranky.
