Do you smell baby powder?

The setting: Mom, Claire and I are all downstairs, and Owen is upstairs.

You see, I have finally started letting him go up and down the stairs on his own. We have completely "Owen-proofed" his room and the upstairs so that he can play up there. When I say we have "Owen-proofed" it, that includes, locking the doors to the bathroom and guest room and putting a gate in Claire's room doorway. Why? Well, Owen likes to go in her room and completely TRASH it!! I mean dolls a flying, her little table and chairs turned over, and her armoire drawers emptied!! You should hear the shrieks from her when he steps foot in her room. But since he just got all of these great toys for his birthday, we wanted to give him some independence and let him play with them in his room. As well, I don't really think a train table really goes with my living room decor =) ...Back to the story...

I am working on my computer and I ask Mom, "Do you smell baby powder?".

I realize what I am saying, fly up the stairs and.....Yes, that fog in the pictures is the powder, not a bad picture.
I guess we only THOUGHT we were Owen-proofed...

CLASSIC!! What is it with little boys and lotion, baby powder, etc? Jonah is all about some lotion, and the other day I found him (after it was too quiet for way too long!) in his room sitting at the foot of his changing table with a big jar of vasaline, open, and slathered all up and down both arms. LOL He and O have GOT to meet!!!
