Lily is not allowed to have gum.
I find it in places it doesn't belong.
Like in her hair.
Grammy already had to cut a brush she had gotten stuck in her hair out this summer.
What happens at grammy's did not get to stay at grammy's that time.
I was told.
But it really wasn't too bad.
BUT I was not cutting this mass of gum out of her hair.
She wouldn't have any left!
So, I remembered that I am controlling my temper.
It really is actually kind of funny.
Why did it even make me initially mad?
I guess it is every Mom's right of passage to deal with the gum vs hair fight.
Will not be the last time I deal with this.
I did let her have the bubble gum ice cream.
She actually started yelling when I pulled out my camera
"NOT FOR YOUR BLOG!"
Tough luck kiddo
We got online together and looked up how to get gum out of hair.
Wikipedia seemed the best source.
We careful followed the exact directions.
Creamy peanut butter - Max makes sure we have lots of this
Put it on a tooth brush
Brush it through the hair.
Let it sit if needed.
Child may try to hide from camera.
Keep brushing it through the hair till the oil dissolves the gum.
Unless you like smelling like peanuts.
The verdict -
It actually worked.
She still has just a little bit left, but we are working around it.
I am glad I didn't shave her head.
