Some things should not be bought in bulk.

Such as syrup.

You may be asking yourself, "but why not?"

This is why not.

It's not very fun trying to clean up a full 1/2 gallon of sticky, gooey, ant-inviting syrup that spilled all over the kitchen floor and under the refrigerator.

So not cool!

Luke thought he would make himself a waffle and climbed up the cabinet to reach the syrup that was on the top shelf. It slipped right out of his hands and BAM - the plastic bottle burst open. Ugh!

Even after the tedious clean up process, the floor still has a tacky feel to it and our kitchen is permeated with the smell of maple.

The last time Luke tried to make himself a snack all by himself this is what happened.

Can you even guess what that is a picture of?

That would be a burnt corn dog with the plastic wrapper melted around it.

Not being able to read yet, he pushed whatever button looked right to him. 4 minutes later - ta da - burnt carcinogen on a stick.

Tomorrow is his first day of preschool. I hope he doesn't get put on snack duty.


  1. UGHHH! That might just put me over the edge. Sticky messes are the worst!

  2. LOL! Glad it's you, not me. Mike's grandfather once dropped a big jar of maraschino cherries on the kitchen floor. Legend has it that the floor was sticky for months.

  3. Sounds familiar - yesterday Eldest spilled an entire gallon of Arizona ice tea all of the kitchen floor - it was like a sticky swamp!

  4. OMG. Hilarious (but sorry, what a mess!) Funny about snack duty. Maybe your son should get a pass. For the safety of others.

  5. Oh NO! That mess looks awful to clean up. LOL about the corn dog. :)
