WFMW: If You Have A Toddler
Tuesday, July 22, 2008
If you have a toddler, don't go to Ikea.

Because if you do, you'll be taken in by the fabulously sturdy stools priced at only $2.99.

Why, for that price,
you'll say to yourself, I could get one for every bathroom in the house!

You'll purchase one for each sink, envisioning halcyon days free of toddlers whining they need the water turned on for hand washing.

Stop, woman, and think. You are about to enable your toddler to have access to running water, any time she wants.

If you have a toddler, don't browse the soap aisle. Stick with a plain bar of Ivory. There is beauty in simplicity. If you happen look over at the liquid pumps, you might be tempted.

Why, brown sugar and vanilla! What a lovely s
cent, you'll think.

With thoughts of delicious smelling fingers, and the recent scent of your German husband's last stop in the powder room lingering, you'll buy two.

Stop, woman, and think. You are about to purchase a product irresistible to a toddler girl who loves cookies and thinks she is a princess.

If you have a toddler, never, ever let them see you plug the drain and fill up the bathtub.

And if you do not heed these warnings, do not think to yourself, Why, that big ol' comforter is just like a giant towel. It'll soak up 100 gallons of bathwater off the floor, easy!

Because bathwater weighs 8 pounds per gallon. An old comforter holds approximately 945 gallons (I'm estimating, here.) And Mamas of toddlers rarely hit the gym to work on their biceps.

Thinking ahead... will hopefully work for me next Wednesday. This week's already shot.
