What do you do...

...when your darling little baby boy gets into the cactus plant...

1) Kick yourself for not digging it up and tossing it the day before like you had intended, when he came dangerously close to getting into it the first time.
2) Attempt to pull out the thorns with tweezers...while distracting him with Hershey's kisses...

when that doesn't work...
3) Get packing tape (at husband's suggestion) and apply it to area, and rip off...

when that doesn't work...
4) Google it...
5) Strip baby naked, apply Elmer's glue all over hand...attempt to keep him still while it's drying...
when he won't stay still...
6) Give him chocolate...
when he spits it out...
7) Give him mint chocolate chip ice cream by the spoonful...

And voila!!! Happy baby....
8) Then, peel off dried Elmer's glue and release baby...
9) And go dig up evil cactus...

This was such a sweet post. Not happy for poor baby boy- but your sweet mothering heart was lovely to read. :) (we let me eat three Popsicles in a row when she ate the concrete and got a huge fat lip. She loved that day. lol)

Poor Landis! I love the diaper pics. Sounds like he and Drew are a pair of mischief makers!

Could he be any cuter?
So sorry baby!
I know what it feels like to fall into a cactus. Apparently it will be a story to be proud of when you get bigger (at least according to my oldest son).
Ice cream always makes everything better!
