Adventures In Sugar

Two days ago Beck figured out how to get onto and off of the bar stools in at the kitchen island. Since that time, he has gotten very well acquainted with the mechanics of the sugar shaker...

First there was the Great Toast Adventure


And then 30 minutes after I refilled the sugar shaker, there was the Filter Fiasco.
Let me give you a play by play of how it went down.
Step 1) Open the Brita Pitcher. Step 2) Dump the entire sugar shaker into the reservoir. Step 3)Sprinkle the sugar pile with pepper, for added aesthetic appeal.







I'm not sure how good the Brita filter is at filtering out 3/4 cup of sugar granules. It isn't a feature listed in the booklet. So....no?


I hope this doesn't mean that I'm going to have to start keeping everything we own on top of the refrigerator. It's going to get very crowded up there.

The "Ben the Wrecker" gene must have skipped my family and gone straight to yours :) It's a good thing he's so freaking cute!

Haha dont you just love toddlers?

Melissa said...

Arrrgghh! Not the Brita!

Shawn said...

Maybe he is trying to invent a new drink? Sounds like Kool-aid might have beat him to it...

I have a little girl who is six and will still willfully dump out an entire shaker of salt on the table so she can play in it. Good times.

Oh, my sweet, cute little chemist! How can you do anything but hug him?

I saw a cartoon once of a couple entertaining friends, all of them sitting on the bare living room carpet. About 6 feet up was a wide shelf going all the way around the room with all the family belongings on it. The Dad was saying to the guests, "Why yes, we DO have a toddler. How did you guess?

Ugh.

Perhaps a little prequel to his devoting his life to cooking, no?

No, you're just going to have to put baby locks on your kitchen cupboards. That's what I finally did.

Maybe he was trying to make rock candy with Brita.
