1st offense: George stowed away in the bathroom sink and smeared desitin (what is the fascination with desitin?) all over her hair. She didn't put a bit of it on her face. Went straight for the hair. Not the best decision, in my book. What was I doing? Trying to make her lunch.
Number of washings: 8. Started out with the mechanic soap right from the start and it still took 8 washings.
2nd offense: George went in the other bathroom, got cozy in the sink again, and this time made her hair pretty using the antibacterial foaming hand soap. Nice choice if you want the sheen as opposed to the matte look the desitin gave her. Good smell too. Exotic coconut. No picture this time. I was too mad. What was I doing? Cleaning the upstairs bathroom (the one the little boys use most...need I say more?)
Number of washings: Just three this time, although there was a lot more yelling.
3rd offense: George went into the same bathroom (after I had locked it) and got out the toothpaste this time. Guess she wanted a little more color. This was by far, the biggest saturation she had managed. What was I doing? Vacuuming the house. Shame on me.
Number of washings: 6. And not a cavity to be found.
All this in one afternoon. How would you have handled it? Today, her hair is grimy. I just couldn't get everything out. You'd think she learned her lesson because of her hatred for having her hair rinsed again and again. But today, I caught her just in time as she was anxiously holding the desitin tube again. I am about at the end of my limit!! I've had this terrible sinus infection/cold/allergies thing going on the past week. Bending over to bathe her made the sinus pressure unbearable, not to mention the one plugged nostril and the other one that is a continuous drip...not too much fun when you spend your day bending over the bathtub.
Anyone want a two year old for a while? She is really good at being two... Right now she is playing with scissors right next to me. (relax! she's cutting paper) If she went for her hair, I don't think I would be too upset.
