How Do You Get Gum Out Of Hair?

PhotobucketSaturday morning I had the opportunity to get out of the house without any children.  As a busy mother of three, I rarely have that kind of time..."ME" time!  On this day, I got to enjoy my time shopping.  No, not the kind of shopping you might think.  I didn't get to pick out a cute new outfit with matching shoes.  I got to go grocery shopping!  Is it sad that I get excited because I get to go to Wal-Mart alone?!  That's exactly how exciting my life really is.

While I was at Wal-Mart, my husband kept all three of the kids.  I don't think I had been gone for 20 minutes before I got a phone call from him asking:

"How do you get gum out of hair?"

Yes, of course I told him to try peanut butter and ice.  I finished my shopping wondering how bad the gum was and whether or not he'd gotten it out.

When I returned home, I think Shelby had a half a jar of peanut butter on her head.  The good thing is that most of the gum is out of her hair.  Apparently her brother was trying to blow a bubble and he blew the gum into her hair.  It was that shredded gum,, the "baseball" gum given to him by someone...the same someone who gave the kids ducks and chickens at Easter.  Needless to say, she no longer has gum in her hair and Tyler no longer has a pack of birthday gum.

I so remember this. Not always in ones hair either. The rug, couch and several other places as I remember. Awful. I'll be Shelby was beside herself since her hair is always so pretty.

Have a terrific day. Big hug. :)

Thanks! Now I know peanut butter and ice would remove gum from hair. You'll never know what kids can be up to sometimes!

oh no! The dreaded gum in the hair! I'll bet that will never happen again now.
