    Shadow Wolf 07,

    The reason why I never made it back last night is because of Jayden. She decided to perform one of her science experiments...she wanted to find out what would happen if she filled up the garbage disposal with popcorn seeds. She dumped two whole bags (two quarts) of seeds into the disposal and turned it on.

    When Erica and I ran back into the kitchen, my daughter was ducking below the counter, but trying to peer over the edge of the sink, and...let's just say it looked like a tornado going in reverse. Between her getting the floor and my wife and I getting the counters (it went everywhere) it took ninety minutes to clean it up.

    This is the same girl who wanted snow in July two years ago and dumped three five pound bags of bleached flour around the kitchen to make everything white.

    Erica and I just about peed ourselves laughing after the kids were asleep. And just think; she's only seven.

    Good one! Would she be interested in the "exploding volcano"....Quart size bottle of diet Coke and a package of Mentos?

    Mr Zippy,

    She would be. I'm trying to keep her away from YouTube videos for fear that she'll inadvertently blow up the house.

    Sounds like she would fit in perfectly with the cast of the Little Rascals. LOL

    Rami,

    Ah, the joys of parenting. That's why I'm glad mine are in their thirties, and moved out.

    Anthin,

    That she does. She has considerable music and artistic abilities already, and (as I'm sure it's obvious) is very creative / inventive. Erica and I just wish sometimes she'd channel it into something more productive. We constantly have to check the pockets of her clothes for crayons and markers; my wife and I have lost a couple of dress shirts and dresses to her "accidents."

    No Dice,

    She's grounded from the kitchen for the time being; she has to get permission to enter from Erica, myself, or her big sister and have an escort until we can trust her again. (She's not a behavior troublemaker, it won't be long)

    Then I guess BBQing you some hot dogs and Hamburgers on the gas grill out on the patio may not be a good idea ??

    Great story.

    My wife found our oldest (2-3 yrs) in the kitchen one morning "baking a cake" with flour and sugar all over the cabinet top and him. We stopped that with a gate to his room. That was some 50 years ago!
    So nothing new with kids experimenting in the kitchen.

    No Dice,

    She could do a great job, burn her eyebrows off, or we might never see the cat again. Of course, wouldn't the last one make it a Korean BBQ? Not worth the risk.

    Highpockets,

    At 50, it may be time to let him out of the gate ....

    Good afternoon,

    Had another one last night...I had to bring my son Mike to the emergency room to get stitches on his head. My eldest daughter, who is now grounded indefinitely, convinced one of her brothers that he could go a lot farther on the slip-and-slide in our backyard if he covered himself in vegetable oil first.

    The good news? It worked.

    The bad news? My son rocketed off the slip-and-slide after getting a running start, continued about seventy five feet beyond, and crashed head-first into a wooden fence, requiring eight stitches.

    I had to bring them both to the hospital, and threw my daughter under the bus at the hospital so that I wouldn't be suspected of child abuse. When she told the nurses and doctors, they were trying so hard not to laugh...so was Erica when she realized Mike was okay.

    Nothing like a bit of excitement to top off your day. Oil!!! Brilliant.

    I can't wait to hear what She does next.

    Today's spelling short list: lubrication and Inertia. Have you checked whether your daughter filmed the whole event on her phone? That would be a keeper.

    Just keep you daughter away from YouTube and all of the idiotic "Challenges" the kids are doing these days!

    Thought doctors gave up on stitches and went over to staples and crazy glue. I was stapled back together 2 years ago after my surgery. Oh, what fun yanking those babies out!

    Michael,

    I'll have to check that. I wouldn't put it past her...

    No Dice,

    The missus is a nurse, so that's a non-starter.

    Just think, Andrew, in a few years your hair will be white, what's left of it, and you can do a snowy comb-over like mine.......
