Two nights ago, I walked by the stairs to smell this strong perfume wafting down. I went up, and she had opened EVERY SINGLE BOTTLE OF PERFUME I OWN and smeared it all over herself and the washroom.
One of my jobs for this weekend is to clean/organize/declutter my bathroom, and get a doorknob lock for the door. :P It's the only washroom we keep medication in, and I don't want to take any chances.
OMG! I mean,
, but OMG. My toddler is that kind of kid, it's one of the main reasons I'm decluttering--to hide all that kind of stuff!
I've been thinking and thinking about this, and I think I've narrowed it down to one of two things--a small, nice basket that I'll roll the hand towels and put them in, since we actually use them and they won't just sit and gather dust, OR a nice decorative, closed box, like sparkprincess suggested. That way I can still toss my watch and jewelry in there but they'll be hidden. I prefer the closed box, but since funds are tight right now, I think it will have to be the basket and towels idea for the time being, since I already own those. Plus, I think it will be less tempting for little hands than a "treasure chest" will
I'll keep my eyes open for a garage sale or thrift store find though (hooray spring!).
And Kewpie, oh, I love pedestal sinks. This huge counter thing so irks me--what an expanse of wasted space! I could have put a nice tall cabinet there and gotten so much more use out of the whole area. Unfortunately, the bath was redone right before we moved it--the 1940s kitchen with semi-working appliances is a higher priority for the foreseeable future
Thanks for all the advice, everyone. I'm actually pretty proud of myself that I have managed to keep that space clear of products for as long as I have. It's huge progress around here.
