Hi. My name is Meg. I’m mom to my curious little girl, Holden, and my handsome little man, Gatsby (I was an English major).

oh, bother. was created out of my struggle as a working mom in a Pinterest world. I’m a DIYer wannabe and creative design appreciator, but I usually find myself falling a bit short in the execution. You’ll see.

You can also find me on TwitterFacebookPinterest, and Instagram, or hit me up at ohbotherblog{at}gmail.com

the boudreaux's butt paste incident @ohbotherblog Holden. In the nursery. With the Butt Paste.

I've been trying to let Holden play a little more independently lately. So today when she went upstairs while I was nursing her brother downstairs, I decided to let the situation play out for a few minutes. Take a guess how that went.

Alarmed by her unusual silence, I went upstairs and was greeted by this smiling face.

Oh yeah. That's diaper cream.

She had helped herself to the large tub of Boudreaux's Butt Paste on the changing table and got it all in her hair...

Her stuffed animals. The clothes she had pulled out of her drawers and strewn about.

and the carpet.

So the clothes and stuffed animals went into the laundry. And Holden went into the bathtub.

Using knowledge I learned from a previous similar Vaseline incident, I tried washing her with dish soap to cut through the greasiness...

It didn't work. (but isn't that little pony tail cute?)

Also, Boudreaux's Butt Paste does not come easily out of Berber carpet.

How's your day going?
