Ugh. I stink.
Last Christmas, my sister got me a bottle of Lulu - a fragrance that our late mother had worn, and it had had this distinctive bottle, and we'd had little samples of it...
This evening, my four-year-old drenched his bed in it. My house wreaks. My kids wreak. My hands wreak. His room is unbearable. (Thank goodness mine is in a spray bottle and not the dumpable packaging pictured above...)
I'm not even sure how to feel about this. I'm upset that something lovely and that I would gladly have shared with him is now asphyxiating me. I'm terrified that he is getting into things he shouldn't be and that he's at an age where I literally canNOT childproof the house against him. I'm furious that he is being sneaky.
He has been sneaky about cough drops recently - which he is allowed to have, especially since he has been coughing.
Is this the beginning of some new phase? How to handle it....how to handle it...
