MacGyver Mommy (a new series of practical tips)

25 May

Handy hand dryer

Not just for hands anymore

things are looking up
things are looking up for Rockford

At least once a week I head to the mall with my boys to have them release some energy (I highly recommend this).  On this given day, Rockford had a little accident and mommy got a little MacGyver. Come see a tip you might have to use on your next trip to the mall.

Every time we go to the mall the kids will play in the play area, we have a snack then we make our way to the coin operated cars.  Since one of the boys is potty trained this means several trips to the nearest restroom throughout our mall visit.  On this day, Rockford, who’s sippy cup gets filled up at least twenty times a day, needed to use the restroom. After finishing his business in the bathroom he didn’t miss a beat and started chugging down his next cup of water. Before I could even dry my hands he came up to me complaining that he had spilt his water all over his shirt and I had no spare shirt for him. As I am waiting my turn to dry my hands a light goes off.  Yes, you guessed it, this hand dryer was promoted to clothes dryer and my son was a happy camper with his newly dried shirt. We then headed back to the play area to continue about our day.

 These new eco-friendly dryers they have now are even better…even on clothes.

Please let me know of any practical I should be aware of and I’ll keep sending mine your way.

    Good thing it was water and not Kool-aid or punch!

      Nancy, I think I would have dried it too and have him embrace that spot lol. Isn’t it lovely how accidents always happen when we least plan for it and are not prepared for them? I guess that’s when the McGyver in us comes out 🙂 Thanks for stopping by you are awesome.
