This morning I was trying to fold some laundry while Collin was awake (mistake #1), and he was in the laundry room "helping". He bent down to pick up a dryer sheet that had fallen to the ground and in the process he hit his face (lip) on the open dryer door on the way down. Poor baby!
I picked him up and noticed a little blood so immediately I was thinking about all of the baby ice packs we had received as shower gifts...all of which were NOT in the freezer. This is why I will again not be in the running for Mother of the Year :)
Anyways, all of the cute boo-boo bunny and ploar bear ice packs weren't going to us any good room temperature so I got a ziploc baggie and put a few ice cubes in it. For a while Collin was happy sucking on the ice whil I held the baggie, but after he calmed down he decided that he wanted to hold the ice himself.
After a few minutes I felt cold drops on my legs and realized the baggie had a small hole, so I tried to take it away (mistake #2). Let's just say that in the previous 5 minutes Collin had become very attached to his baggie! I even tried to replace it with a new one with fresh ice...but it just wasn't the same. Every time I even reached for the baggie he would cry and clutch it so tight that even more water would come out!
So now Collin has his "security ice" that he refused to let go of, and we had cold water dripping all over him, me, and the floor.
Fortunately I was able to pry it out of his fingers as he drifted off to nap time...but I know when he wakes up I am going to get a look and a whine that says, "where is my baggie of ice mom?"
And yes, the boo-boo bunny and polar bear are both in the freezer now :)
