I should have known better...

I was in the kitchen putting away groceries, which Kylie always insists on helping me with, but for some reason she didn't join me in the kitchen.  I should have known to check on what she was doing, but instead I enjoyed being able to get everything put away quickly, without a toddler helping.  Plus, she was in the next room that is open to the kitchen, it's just that the couch was blocking most of her.  I then went to see what she was up to and this is what I found.
Pictures didn't capture just how much of a mess she made with the baby powder.  It was all over the couch, the floor, the table, books, her clothes, and her shoes.
She doesn't like to get her hands dirty if we're inside (outside is a different story) and she just realized that the powder was on her hands.
Starting to panic and wanting her hands washed.
I told her I was going to clean up the mess she made first, before washing her hands and she became very upset with me.  She wasn't even in trouble over the powder, I told her she shouldn't have done it and to not do it again, but I knew that if someone hadn't left it open (not me) then it wouldn't have happened to begin with!  Her only "punishment" is that I didn't wash her hands immediately oh and I took a picture of her crying ;) On the bright side, my house smelled really good that day!

LOL - now that is funny! We are learning the same lesson too - if the toddler is missing and no noise is happening- something is going down! Something no good! hahaaha! It must be a toddler thing, Julianna hates being dirty- hates when our car is dirty, hates when the floor is dirty - Ugh!! I am laughing at kylie's expression! :)
