Hey Mom! I spilled some yogurt in my backpack.
When? Today? Is there a lot or just a little bit?
I dunno. A couple days ago.
WHAT??? A couple days ago and you're just telling me now? And why do you always wait until bedtime to tell me stuff like this anyway! How much spilled?
I dunno. Not that much. It's not my fault! I didn't know that would happen!
You didn't know what would happen? Did you sit on your backpack? Smack someone upside the head with it? Wrestle with it?
sigh Well that makes perfect sense. Is it on anything? Is it on any books or anything?
No. Well, just my reading text book. And my papers. And my folder. And some other stuff.
You're killing me kid. Just grab some diaper wipes and clean off the books. Throw out any old papers and leave your backpack in the sink. I'll wipe it out when I'm done working.
When I went to wipe out his backpack, this is what I found...
Yep, it's an entire cup of yogurt (minus what stuck to his books and papers). Lovely. This is exactly what I wanted to do at 11:00 at night. Thankfully, it was a good sturdy Lands' End backpack and I was able to rinse it out pretty easily. The book, on the other hand. He probably doesn't really need to read pages 87 - 252, does he? I wonder how much text books are going for these days...
