*howls of laughter*

While I typed that last blog entry, Young Indiana abandoned me. I didn’t realize the kitchen door was open, so I didn’t think much of it. After a minute, though, I decided I better go see what he was doing.

I found him in front of the open fridge, the maple syrup jug held firmly in both hands, maple syrup spread from between his eyes down his shirt down his pants all over his one bare foot his one socked foot all over the floor all over all over all over everything!

He held up the jug and said, in delight, “Juice!”

He has now been bathed. *I* have now been bathed. And now I have to go try to clean up the floor without him getting into more syrup… :)

Ayup. He's a clever one. When he's older, you'll also get the entertainment value of watching him try to cleverly squirm out of the clever mess he's made. ;-)

Do they *make* child-proof locks for the fridge? :)

Wow. Toddler + fridge = wide open vistas of Mess Possibility. :)

I forget, can you get maple syrup in Ireland? (Says the person living in New Hampshire who drives pass tapped maple trees in the spring.)

At great expense, but we make our own fake maple syrup with sugar, water and mapeline, which is what he was drinking. Much cheaper to lose down a baby's gullet. :)

That's one of those stories you'll happily tell him dozens of times. ;-D (My son is 13 now....Enjoy it!)
