Ducky Diaries: Make a sensory bottle, they said......

Make a sensory bottle, they said......

It will be fun, they said.
The kids will love it, they said........

Glitter bottles, sensory bottles, calm down bottles, time out bottles. Whatever you want to call them, they are the devil.

Let me paint the scene (AhahHAAAAHAHA paintttttt the scene), I awoke this morning and headed to the bathroom which takes me right past both the kids rooms....

Walking by Bear's room I catch a glimpse of what looks like a shiny, blue child. -That can't be right- *rubs eyes* *looks again*.  Yup. A shiny, greasy, blue child, sitting cross legged squeezing something that is spraying blue gunk everywhere. He is a foot away from his shaggy, expensive, red rug....

W.T.F.

I step over his gate and into his room and am hit with an unholy smell. It smells like a sewer. It's his sensory bottle. Oil, glitter, and blue food coloring are everywhere. I coax him to stay put and grab a towel. I carry him to the bathroom and shut the bedroom door because at 7:00 a.m. I can't even.

I did not think to take pictures of the actual event because honestly I was thinking of reasons to not stick my greasy kid in the front yard with a "FREE" sign hung around his neck. Instead I bathed him, gave him a lecture about making good decisions, and told him his dollar allowance is being docked .50 which means he can't afford his candy bar this week (which is serious business for a 5 year old).

I think I'm winning until I remember I have to clean everything.

Fast forward to now-ish everything is mostly clean with the exception of the green tint soaked into my wood floor, an entire outfit and a boppy in the trash, a sinkful of children's play dishes to wash, and a kid with errant glitter on his body.

Ohhhhh.... And the kicker.....
There's another sensory bottle somewhere in this house and I can't find it..... AHAHAHHHHHAAA IT'S GOING TO BE A GREAT DAY!
