It’s All Goo(d)
November 14, 2006 @ 7:44 pm | Filed under: Family Adventures
Yesterday afternoon I sat down on the floor to change the baby. As I lingered there, playing with her, Wonderboy came up behind me and leaned against me for a little while. He loves to supervise my baby-tickling. Then he began—oh, it was so sweet!—to gently stroke my hair. For several minutes I sat there enjoying the soft touch of his hand on the back of my head. He was chuckling softly, and I was just melting.
Then he touched my arm, and his fingers were slimy. Startled, I turned to look at him and there he stood with a big happy grin, one hand glistening with goo—and an open jar of Vaseline in the other.
My hair is very shiny today.

Ha! Figures. You seldom get lovin’ from a little one without paying a price, be it chocolate stains on your shoulder or vaseline in your hair!

Oh yuck! But I think it would have been worth it because little boys are so gentle and sweet at head rubbing.

Oh. My. Goodness. Once again, you have demonstrated that I am not alone in the universe: there are other mamas like me who are blessed with funny, messy little darlings who ensure that life is never dull!

Yup, sounds like a boy thing! It’s much cuter when it happens to someone else (LOL).

I can really relate to this as I had a similar experience. The baby found the vaseline I (used to) rub on my feet before bed and smeared it on the sheets, bed rail and my hair. I woke up when she placed a big glob of it in my eye! It must feel nice to explore.
