Okay, so Haidyn's new infatuation is gum! We have always had very strict rules with gum in our house. Ashlee can still only chew gum if her hair is pulled back in a pony tail. Well, today Haidyn was chewing gum and when she was done with it she gave it to me and said, "all done mommy." So, to the trash the gum went. Later today, I noticed GUM IN HER HAIR! My worst nightmare! It was pretty high up and all mashed and tangled. YIKES! I had always heard that peanut butter can remove gum from hair, but due to our strict gum-chewing-rules I had never encountered this situation. I dove straight for the tub of 'Jif' - it worked like a charm! Her golden locks are good as new!
The funny thing is, earlier today I was NOT a big fan of peanut butter. My kids (mostly Nolan and Haidyn) are always wanting a "peanut butter spoon". It's one of their favorite snacks. But this morning as they were enjoying their peanutty spoon, Nolan decided it funny to chase Haidyn around the house. She ran to me, clenching to my leg and laughing while drooling and wiping her tasty spoon all over my booty! Not so fun. But now, I have a new appreciation for the peanut butter!
Places we've found peanut butter smeared...
1. on my booty
2. on the kitchen counters
3. on the underside of the table
4. on my curtains
5. on the couch
6. on the dog
7. and even the cat
8. Haidyn's hair
9. bathroom sink
10. all over towels
11. on their clothes
12. AND surprisingly...the toilet (at least we thought it was peanut butter)
Thanks 'Jif' - we are now forever loyal consumers of your product. Sorry 'Skippy', I won't be conducting any new research in the near future.
