Cooper playing quietly, Mom and Beckham on the couch while Bex is guzzling his bottle and Seneca playing at the bottom of the stairs. I went shopping yesterday and had a few things I put at the bottom of the stairs that needed to go up but hadn't made it yet. One of those items was a bottle of fabric softener. A decent- sized bottle. The one item Senny seemed most fascinated with. I was watching her, but was sure that she couldn't get the lid off... hm. You can see where this is going.
In slow motion, I saw the lid loosen and shortly thereafter Seneca was sitting in a pool of blue and my house was filled with the lovely scent of clean laundry. She's on carpet, mind you. First move, put beckham down, gently. Second move, pick up seneca and place her in the bathtub; fully clothed, instruct Cooper to stay with her for a minute. Move car out of garage so the wet/dry vac is accessible and bring it in. Suck up pretty blue liquid out of my carpet. Change Seneca's clothes.
Yes, I should have gotten pictures, but first, my camera is having issues and second, I wasn't going to let it sit there and soak while I went snap-happy. Sorry.
I did my darnedest to get it cleaned up and am now enjoying the lovely sound of Shellie's steam cleaner as Denten finishes the job. I'm not sure why he didn't like the pale hue of blue that adorned our floor...
Today I am grateful that if something had to spill on the carpet that at least it smells nice! I'm also grateful that the Carter's once again saved us by having just what we needed on hand. I'm grateful that Denten is a hard-worker and slaved away for a while at home after working all day. I'm grateful that I shop with coupons and didn't lose much moola when the fabric softener spilled!
