Did you know that a 16 mth old can empty a jar of vaseline and smear it all over herself while her big sister/babysitter is going potty? Oh yes. A 16 mth old can grease herself all up from head to toe in under a minute!
Also, there is enough vaseline left on a toddlers hands to re-cover her belly after sister removes the slimey shirt.
And then.... this greased toddler can escape to the back yard while sister-sitter is letting the dog out and trying to figure out what to do the the vaseline monster.
Vaseline and dirt make a wonderful body and hair paste.
And, a toddler can remove her own diaper on the lawn even with vaseline/dirt covered paws. There is enough vaseline to continue to smear on her butt.
Grass sticks to a naked vaseline covered child.
According to the big sister/frustrated babysittter.... oven mitts are essential for baby care when vaseline is involved.
Vaseline also makes a very nice ring around the tub and enables the grass and dirt to stick to the sides of the tub too.
It's just amazing what fun a toddler can have with one little jar of Vaseline.
