    Many years ago, as a tired single mom who had
    laid down for a nap, I felt a little hand lifting my
    eyelid and one little 4 year old calmly saying to
    the 5 year old, "Let's not tell Mom the gold fish
    don't like corn meal."

    Of course that woke me up instantly...the gold
    fish bowl was half full of corn meal, with a rather
    bewildered fish trying to avoid the new little
    mountain in his bowl.

    Then there was the time they were fighting and
    burst a bag of pinto beans, and a tired mommy
    told them to pick up every one of them. The
    last one of them was picked up but the garbage
    was already taken out, so the oldest, at 5 years
    old, didn't have a pocket so of course stuck that
    last bean up her nose. A couple of days later it had
    swelled up so I took her to the doctor, who
    removed her swollen and starting to grow bean
    at great expense...

    Ahh, kids. The further back things happened, the
    more fun I remember having.

Probably just in time to drywall the next room!! LOL
    Me too!! Re-doing family room down stairs. Have door closed. Door didn't stop the dust from going up stairs! We do spackeling in 3 intervals...spackel sand, spackel sand, spackel sand... what a mess!
    that is why we have used blue board & plaster....no sanding!! just prime & paint.

    Oh my! My husband and I chuckled with you. I hope you were able to hold it in while your little guy was telling you it was all okay!!! I have tiled countertops too and the best thing I can suggest is to use a toothpick or shishkabob stick. Sorry, don't have anything better that won't damage the seal on the grout. You have to give him credit though, he did try. But I'm sure he will forever remember you don't clean up flour with water.

    Me, too! One of my favorite memories is of a then-6-year -old daughter (my second one) who came home from a field trip to the zoo and proceeded to tell me (in front of Grandma and Uncle) that she had seen an a**hole at the zoo! I nearly died laughing, but what she meant was that she had seen a donkey (jackass)! I don't tell that story often, but it's a precious memory for me!

    Naw just leave it. It will eventually clean itself up. :XD:

    This is the BEST idea I've heard yet :) And, so far, that's pretty much all I've done :)

    Whatever I clean up is just going to be messy again with something else, right????
