Jacob Meets Gorilla Glue!

Okay, so I'll start off by saying that YES - I moved Josiah as soon as I saw him asleep that way (well, actually after I died laughing and went to show David and got my camera!) I KNOW he fell asleep about 2 minutes after he went to bed at 7 pm, so I really think it was some random dream or he woke up after a few hours or something. But YES, I moved him.

Okay, on to Jacob today. Both boys needed naps today, so I put Josiah in his bed and put Jacob in my room. Thought he would conk right out, and Callie was down for her nap, so I told David what was happening and went off to the gym for my workout. I didn't want to go to the gym and have to leave Callie in childcare with her having shots today. Anyways, I came home and went into my room to take a shower and discovered Jacob! He was standing on the toilet seat in our bathroom, painting his face with my mascara!!! (It gets worse). I looked on my bed (where he was supposed to be sleeping) and find David's and my glasses (mine were mangled) and with some kind of substance on it. At first I thought it was Aloe Vera, because that was on the counter in my bathroom. I take Jacob straight to the bathtub and as I'm trying to get him clean, David comes back in says "It's not Aloe - it's WAY too sticky". So I ask Jacob what he got into and he says "Glue!" Sure enough, he found the Gorilla Glue somewhere in our room and had it all over our glasses, his hands and feet. Thankfully, he didn't swallow any or get any in his hair or eyes. What a mess!! David LOVED his glasses and has only had them about a year (I needed new ones anyways), but neither of us were very happy! And of course he didn't take a nap.

We headed to the pool later (Jacob slept during the 7 minute care ride!) and enjoyed a brief break from the heat. Jacob's already asleep and Josiah is on his way! What a day!!!

oh Katy! I'm sure that was quite a sight. I wish I could have been a fly on the wall to see it all transpire! :) You handled it well! I'm glad he didn't do any permanent damage to himself and kept the glue on the outside of his body rather than the inside!

Sounds like you have a litte 'curious george' on your hands! Reminds me of another friend's incident with Vicks vapor rub....

Boy, is he the quiet sneaky one? He probably knew exactly what he wanted to accomplish. Maybe some new creation. You never know what's in their little heads. Sorry about your glasses. YIKES!! You'll look back and laugh one day. Maybe in 20 years!!!
