Eventful morning: part 1
Woke up to the cries of a 3yo in need: "go down!". Forced myself out of bed, made a quick scan of the living room: nothing.
Came into the kitchen to find:
1. A tall chair next to the kitchen counter and my kid sitting on the counter top.
2. An open jar of cookies, skillfully removed from to shelf (I'd assumed this to be far out of reach even if said kid would manage to climb the counter)
Eventful morning: part 3
9. The chair is covered in foam and so is the kitchen floor.
10. A soaking wet beam detector (also assumed to be our of reach for even the most adventurous 3yo) lies in a foamy puddle.
I put on my grumpy face and initiate the hazard management program:
1. Remove kid from kitchen
2. Move wet items to sink
3. Grab a wash cloth
4. Notice a trail of soapy footprints leading away from kitchen (!)
5. Put kid in tub and wash thoroughly.
Eventful morning: part 4 (last episode)
6. Firmly but calmly ask kid to play in kid's room. (Wife wakes up, realizes something is going on)
7. Back to kitchen, clean up on countertop. Wife cleans soap off of appliances and chair.
9. Mop the floor & repeat with new water five times before bubbles are gone. Wife makes coffee.
11. Sit down in couch with kid and have a long pedagogical talk.
12. Update kitchen hazard prevention plan.
13. Wife points out that coffee tastes soapy.
