There Should be a Warning Label!!
There should be a warning label on Bath and Body Work's Stress Relief lotion. What would such a warning label say???
"WARNING - This product will not always provide stress relief. In fact, at times it may cause a rapid increase in stress."
Why would you need such a warning?
Because while you're getting ready, your 5 year old will take the bottle and empty it into your 3 year old's hair. The two of them will then begin to rub the lotion all over the 3 year old's head and arms. By the time you peak your head out of the bathroom to check on them, approximately 2 minutes later, said 3 year old will be such a mess you will have stop what you're doing and go give him another bath.
And if you're really lucky, while you're bathing the 3 year old, your hair (which you were in the middle of blow drying) will become frizzy and you'll have to double the amount of time you spent fixing it. At the same time your 5 year old will go down to the kitchen and spill a bowl of cereal and your 1 year old will attempt to help you give the 3 year old a bath and will get so wet, he'll require a new outfit.
Morale of the story? Keep your stress relieving lotion up out of reach of your little ones.
