daisy_knotwise just ran out to Oberweis to pick up milk. Mere moments after she left, I discovered that Katie had gotten hold of a bottle of spray cleaner which she had sprayed all over parts of the dining room, including my work laptop. When I caught her, I shouted "Katie!"

She ran upstairs where I caught up with her, swatted her bottom, and put her in her bedroom for a timeout.

I've now cleaned up the mess. In a minute or two, I'll go let her loose.

Yes, and she tried to make a bottle for herself with formula powder too. That also did not work well...

It's amazing how much of a mess a cleaning product can make, isn't it? :)

Oh, yes. Fortunately, it didn't get into the works.

I didn't know about the calcium pills all over the bedroom floor where she'd scattered them.

Wow. I hope the laptop is okay.

I guess there's just no way to childproof a laptop. Except maybe those "ruggedized" ones the military uses might be able to take it...

Maybe. I have doubts. :)

Of course, I also have a 2.5 year old daughter...

My son's friend sprayed a bottle of carpet cleaner into one of our televisions once. It kept the menu on the screen and would change channels randomly every couple of hours.

His mother made him trade his television (about the same age/size as ours) for our TV so he had the one with the trouble.

He was a little older than your Katie, tho. About 4 I think. That was after he drew the village on our wall with fingernail polish and then signed it, and a few other things. That was the last of his troubles at our house (that we found out about :)
