Baseball (oh boy)

Yesterday Max had yet another baseball game. If you were wondering he has not gotten any better. Anyways right before he was supposed to go on the field he slowly walks to me with both hands on his peeps saying he has to go to the bathroom now. Of course it's all the way across the field. So me, Max, Ollie and Harper start walking over to it. Max is walking REALLY weird and REALLY slow. I said dude do you really have to go that bad? Why did you wait this long? I was getting bummed. He was being so weird. Then he said" Mom don't come in the bathroom with me, OK."  I thought maybe a little pee came out. We finally get to the bathroom and Max tells me and Ollie we are not to come in. Whatever. 10 minutes later Max is still in the bathroom. I know peeing does not take this long. Max I'm coming in."NO, mom don't come in!!"Max come out. Whats going on in there? "You promise I won't get in trouble?!" Yes. Max comes out and he uncovers his peeps and there is a big piece of gum smashed all over it. I start laughing. He starts laughing. Max why didn't you just tell me!"I thought I would get in trouble." Well I thought for sure this was reason enough to go home. So I show the couch and he says" Uhh, just throw some dirt on it" Hmm really you don't think we should just go home? I mean we don't want this stickiness to spread. Needless to say Max ended up finishing the game gummy peeps and all. Hey does anyone know how to get gum out of polyester?

This rules. Doesn't sprinkling a little dirt on it fix everything?

well, I don't think the ice trick would work cuz it won't come out of the fibers. I'm sure the peanut butter will work. rub peanut butter on it and it just makes the gum disinegrate. Or put some "Goo Gone" on it. that works with everything. I've seen Goo Gone at every dollar store I've been to. Or walmart. hardware section. I LOVE this story. :)

So the peanut butter got the gum out. Now how do I get the peanut butter out?!

Just in the wash, on hot (or extra hot if you have it) water. it'll melt the peanut butter out. Or you can first run it under hot, hot water to get most of it out, then put it in your washer on hot, just like you would with your whites.

wow! That is an amzing picture! Did the gum go through the fibers? The big question is how did the gum get in his pants?

this made me laugh so hard!! there should be a collection of funny bubble gum stories. when i was 16, i went a date with this guy to a bowling alley. when i got home, i found a huge wad of gum in my hair. and no, we did not kiss; i had no idea where it came from or how it got there.

I have to admit Ruth.....when i heard the story, I thought he actually had gum on his "peeps", not his pants. That is hysterical. I am still laughing!
