Sour Milk

A couple weeks ago I set out to serve Amelia her usual breakfast of bee cookie cereal (honey nut cheerios) and milk. The milk, which I had just bought the night before was not in the refrigerator where it belonged.  Instead, I found it on the floor in the corner of the dining room where Bradley likes to curl up with a snack and, apparently, an entire gallon of milk.

In a house with so many people living in it (and with random strays wandering through it) something like consuming spoiled milk is a pretty simple mistake to make.  I can’t tell you how many times I’ve cleaned out the fridge only to find later that the old/soured/moldy food made its way back into the fridge.  I have NO idea how that keeps happening and no one is ever willing to fess up to it.  So thus, the label….and also, a bill.  Because, you know, we can’t just be letting good food go bad.  A household comprised mostly of hungry men and growing boys can’t be wasting food like that.

The boy was charged the $3.00 it costs me to replace the milk he wasted, which I think is fair.  He was able to find his wallet (the good news) but it was empty (the bad news), so he worked it off.  Then, secretly set out to turn his $3.oo worth of soured milk into a science experiment.

Fast forward to today.  That milk jug never made it through the dishes to the recycling bin like I had hoped.  Instead, Bradley took it upon himself to make cheese….yet another incredibly stinky mess to irritate poor mom’s delicate nasal passages.  SO gross!  Oh, the joys of boys, right?

What’s the most disgusting science experiment you’ve found laying around the house?  Can whatever grotesque thing you’ve found trump Bradley’s stinky cheese?  Drop me a line and let me know.  🙂

    Haha, I can so relate! My son Chad has many annoying little habits, however, the 2 that come to mind are 1. Taking a bite or two out of the fruit. 2. Taking the said fruit and hiding it. Now, I’m not sure if his intentions are to hide the evidence, saving for later, or wanting to secretly become the next Johnny Appleseed. Whatever his reasons, he is an excellent hider! By the time I find the fruit it is no longer recognizable! Oh the joys of boys!!

      We get that here too! Once, boy #2 pulled a full, very hard, piece of pizza out from under the couch. It had been a LONG time since we’d had pizza too. haha. Gross! 🙂
