I never look on the underside of my kitchen table. Why should I? My kids are fairly neat, so I would never suspect a mess there.
Today, my seven-year old son crawled under the table after dinner and made this announcement: "Mama, there's a huge glob of peanut butter under the table."
"What?" I said.
I crawled under the table and found not one, but two smears of peanut butter. They looked a lot like doggy nose prints.
We had put some peanut butter in the dog's kong toy a few months ago. Apparently after he got the peanut butter out, he smeared it under the table.
Do you know what it's like cleaning up three-month-old peanut butter. Pretty disgusting!
Note to self: Inspect under the table on a daily basis, and don't put peanut butter in the dog's kong!
