Penchant for powder

My daughter is obsessed with baby powder.  No matter where it is, she finds it and promptly dispenses as much as she can before she is discovered. I think we all remember this post. At least she was courteous enough to wait until I had gone out for the night that time. The funniest part is, she doesn't just pour it out. She will take off her pull-up and "squirt" it at her bum. I have found her standing on the toilet, on the bathroom counter, in her room and once in the van.

You'd think I'd get smart and just get rid of it by now. The problem is, it is summer and we go to the beach. Baby powder is my go-to for getting the sand off the kids. It is pretty much on the top of my list of miracle worker must have products, right below the magic eraser. Which I obviously don't use on the kids.  I suppose I will just have to get better at hiding it...or follow her around with the vacuum.

  1. I don't even own a bottle of baby powder, so although it sounds awesome for after the beach, I think I'll pass. My kids have dumped out entire bottles of lotion, scraped out the contents of a tube of chapstick, and colored walls behind my back. I wouldn't trust them for a second with powder!! Funny she tries putting it on her bum... hehe

  3. I heard about this little tip at the END of last summer, so I was excited to try it out this year. Back in my dancing days, we used baby powder on our bare feet to dance on the stage. Who knew so many nice uses could come out of it? At least your house smells nice and powdery fresh!
