The Dining Room Battlefield...

What to do when you don't have any blog fodder? Quite simple really.

Change darling daughter's super blow-out diaper and remove her clothing as it is full of poo. After a thorough hosing off in the shower, put diaper-only clad baby into high chair. Give diaper-only clad 16 month old a bowl of stawberry yogurt and a spoon.

Leave unattended for....oh...about 65 seconds.

And.....PRESTO! Blog fodder:

My favorite part of this whole dining room mess was a lonely little strawberry perched precariously on the windowsill:

And which is why today I geared up, cranked my Ipod and scrubbed my dining room walls, chairs, windowsill, baseboards, table, high chairs and floor. It helped that I was listening to Jordin Sparks, 'Battlefield' on replay.

Cause I felt like I was fighting a battle. Amanda VS. Dried-on Food.

I have mini-skirmishes daily in the Amanda vs. Dried-on Food saga, but attempt a full-on war battle about once a week.

Each side will pull ahead for a time, only to be slapped back into last place. Currently, Amanda is sorta ahead. However, Dried-on Food has a champion fighter on their side which will most certainly attempt to slap my lead down around dinner-time tonight:

Isn't she ferocious?

She's also a bit sassy too. I have NO idea where she got that attitude from:

  1. I did that today, too! A bucket o' Simple Green and a toothbrush, attacking the little ridges on my kitchen table. Then abandoned the toothbrush in favor of a paring knife. Yeah, it was bad...

  2. I was just thinking how I am sooooo tired of picking up food off the floor! I need a dog! Your daughter is just adorable :)

  3. Oh my dear bloggy friend, our lives our so much the same. And our daughters . . . well, they are two peas in a pod. SIGH. Mine attracts (or is that makes) a mess where ever she goes. She even makes the daycare workers at the gym sigh. She has that much sass in her 'tude. He, he, he.
