Bag Balm

A couple of weeks ago Ethan was having rough few days of not eating or drinking and a lot of diarrhea. I had called his pediatrician office and his nurse suggested using Bag Balm to help clear up his lobster red bottom. So off Ethan and I went to Wal-mart to purchase an $8.00 can of Bag Balm. Later that evening I was talking on the phone to Jeff and for a while Ethan was playing right by me, he then disappeared and I though he was playing with Grandpa so I continued my conversation with Jeff. A few minutes later I went to check on him. I saw his feet by the chair and figured he was playing with his cars on the chair, however, when I got the chair I gasped and became immediately distraught as to what he had done. Jeff's mom has two really nice plum fabric chairs in her living room and Ethan had the can of Bag Balm with his hand completely in it on one chair and it all the way down his pjs and his monkey, Riley, was completely covered in Bag Balm sitting on the other chair next to a diaper. Grandma cleaned the chairs a few times and there is still a faint shadow of Bag Balm but Grandma said that Ethan was just getting her furniture ready for when baby Avery is ready to figure things out. We have washed Riley a handful of times and he still has a greasy bottom but I am sure this will not be the last time Riley gets a special treatment from something Ethan watched me do.

I wish I had some...but at the time I was so distraught at trying to get it cleaned up.

Hilarious, but not a fun clean up. My dog ate a can of that stuff (surprised?). She was licking her lips for days.
