We arrived home on Saturday completely exhausted. They say getting there is half the fun, but getting home took its toll on Evan. He was tired from our week of adventure and didn't enjoy the plane rides home. Mid flight he had a complete and total meltdown. After a flight attendant came to see "how she could help," we got Evan some milk and he finally fell asleep. Whew! He had a break down on the second flight, too, but it was much shorter in duration and there was no one next to us. Thank heaven for small mercies.

We got home, ate dinner and hit the sack. (By the way--I still plan to post about Days 2-7 of the trip, but all those pictures are on Bryan's computer and I can't write about our adventures without including photos). There was plenty to do on Sunday, but since I'd rather do almost anything that clean, do laundry or go grocery shopping, I decided Evan and I should bake a cake! Nothing fancy--just a cake mix, but I thought he needed something fun. He loves to stand in his learning tower and help me cook.

I poured the cake mix into the bowl and went to the fridge to retrieve three eggs. I did this with my back completely to Evan since he always thinks eggs are balls and wants to play with them. I cracked each egg into a bowl. I was very proud of how well I blocked the egg cracking from Evan's view. Hmmm...I should have realized that since he couldn't see me, I couldn't see him! I turned around and this is what I saw:

I snapped a few pictures before cleaning him up. I threw the shirt in the wash last night. I'm not sure that I'm going to be able to get all the chocolate out! I think my procrastination tactic backfired since it resulted in more cleaning and more laundry! But, we had fun and Evan now officially loves chocolate.

An asprin OR some baking soda should help get the stains out. Sounds crazy but it works.
