Frosted Flakes: Is that a football team I smell?

New, 38 comments

No, it’s just my messy kids.

Last week, I spent a few hours running errands in a car that smelled like an entire football team in full pads after an August afternoon game.

I’m not a windows down kind of person, especially in 90 degree weather, but I was that day.

The cause of that stench can be attributed to both of my children. The weekend before we had been on a trip and got my kids smoothies when we pick up coffee. My youngest tends to play with straws and take off lids, so I prefaced with a speech about leaving the straw alone and leaving the lid on.

We were probably half an hour down the road when I hear, “Oopsie, I accidentally spilled my smoothie.”

I looked back to see half of his smoothie all over the floor and his legs. I cleaned it up with some wipes and forgot about it by the time we got to our destination.

Then, a couple days later we had to have breakfast on the road and I got the boys chocolate milk to go with their donuts. I made special care to talk to my youngest about not spilling his milk. Not long after that my oldest spills half of his chocolate milk on his shoes, the books on the floor, the seat, and the floor itself.

This time we pulled over and I trashed the books and cleaned up the rest with a dirty t-shirt and some wipes.

When we finally get home it is nearly midnight and we have forgotten all about the spills. Two days later I get into my car and BAM! Football team.

My kids are now only allowed water in the car.

Now onto the flakes.

This is fun
