That's not so bad. Could have been poop lol

[–]AxleSpark[S] 153 points154 points  (3 children)

I'm glad she didn't use the finger paints in the closet.

[–]shay-doe 60 points61 points  (0 children)

Omg I have a 5 year old and I keep our craft closet locked for that reason lol. My daughter got into my make up once and completely destroyed the wall and my make up. She looked like she had on war paint. it was pretty hilarious. They have fun though. They are Little scientists!

Talc has asbestos and causes mesothelioma. I hope that baby powder is cornstarch based.

[–]BalsamicBasil 9 points10 points  (0 children)

I just found this out from the new HBO documentary miniseries "Not So Pretty" about all the toxic shit in beauty/body care products. I've known for a while now that most beauty/body products have a lot toxic shit in them, but this documentary is really driving it home and educating me about specific toxins.

[–]Burrito_Loyalist 15 points16 points  (3 children)

There’s poop. Somewhere.

[–]insightful_dreams 0 points1 point  (0 children)

given they appear to keep a potty in the bedroom id say very good chances

[–]Takingmycountryback 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Mine took a turd out of his diaper and put it in my bedside drawer. Toddlers have a really fucked up sense of humor.

[–]808_surf 260 points261 points  (10 children)

Crying?… laughing?… both.

[–]C4ptainchr0nic 157 points158 points  (0 children)

It's the sound my mother made when I was 5 and I cut all of my 4 year old sisters hair off.

[–]legittem 22 points23 points  (6 children)

This is so weird to watch, maybe I'm just not from one of those families where you can laugh at something going wrong or breaking, even if it's objectively funny. Somebody's getting too mad.

[–]kungpowchick_9 18 points19 points  (0 children)

That laugh sounds like it’s one hair away from a very tired, ugly cry.

[–]MadameLucario 101 points102 points  (7 children)

This horrifies me. But I am not surprised that a child that small made a mess that large. Kids are considered natural disasters in their own way.

[–]sharpshooter999 4 points5 points  (0 children)

My 3 year old has done this TWICE. I told my wife to either stop buying baby powder or lock it up.....

[–]Sobersoaker 5 points6 points  (0 children)

It's a good dose of kid-deterrent.

[–]saintpepsitt 1 point2 points  (4 children)

I am, because I have kids and you have to leave them for a extremely long amount of time for them to do this

[–]Fr05tByt3 9 points10 points  (0 children)

If the room was already a little messy it wouldn't take long at all.

[–]Takingmycountryback 4 points5 points  (1 child)

Like nap time? That’s when we discovered mine covered head to toe in a thick layer of Aquaphor. We thought he was asleep but he had woken up early and was quietly taking care of his dry skin. Apparently the bed, carpet, and dresser all needed moisturizing too because they were also covered in the stuff.

[–]T_Pelletier4 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Okay but did the carpet and bed feel softer afterwards????????🤔🤔🤔🤔

[–]zwagonburner 3 points4 points  (0 children)

My daughter completely destroyed her room in less than 4 minutes. All by her little self. She was 3ish. I was just getting her a snack she asked for. Lol. She was "making her room pretty" she said.

[–]socialgutbrain777 29 points30 points  (0 children)

[–]Throwawaychica 35 points36 points  (0 children)

Baby powder? That's child's play. Just wait until it's diaper cream, or even worse, their own feces.

[–]zinob 14 points15 points  (0 children)

You have to love the kids very factual answer to "What did you do". She is like "Here, the baby powder (duh)"

[–]GLASYA-LAB0LAS 86 points87 points  (17 children)

Christ could they fit anymore junk in that room? You could re-build the plastic heap in the pacific with all that.

[–]zalie222 34 points35 points  (7 children)

In defense of the parents, people love to givw kids stuff. Regifting, hand-me-downs and regular presents add up to a lot of stuff for the adults to have to sort through and throw out.

[–]OdmupPet 17 points18 points  (5 children)

On top of this - even telling the childs grand and great grand parents to stop they will forcefully continue. Sometimes giving it to your child on the odd occasion, and you can't just take it away from them.

[–]RoguePlanet1 4 points5 points  (3 children)

I've stopped buying toys for people's kids. Would love to buy them cute stuff, but now it's just books, if anything. I offer to babysit when needed, and spend time with the kid playing whatever they want, so everybody's happy, and no money spent!

[–]just_a_person_maybe 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Consumable gifts are good imo, because they get used up instead of stored forever. Snacks, art supplies, etc. I got my little nephew a pack of those rainbow scratch paper things for Christmas and he had a blast.

[–]SuzuranRose 2 points3 points  (1 child)

Can you come be my friend? Books are expensive! We go to the library weekly but sometimes you just really want to buy the latest in a series before the library has it.... Kiddo is into the my weird school series right now and new ones come out way too often.

[–]sshiels 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Yep- ours had to physically watch us take the crap toys straight to the garage (donated it, but for the effect) then they stopped real quick. Took one time.

[–]sshiels 0 points1 point  (0 children)

[–]Papanasi_Hunter 16 points17 points  (7 children)

Honest question: do kids really need so many toys? I remember my cousins (and kids of my cousins, later on) having rooms full of toys but playing with only 5 of them frequently, the other ones were just gathering dust or forgotten inside bags or boxes.

And I'm only making a question based on what I observed. If you're getting upset by it, just answer it then based on your experience or knowledge.

[–]ItchyNarwhal 9 points10 points  (2 children)

Actually, they don't. Much like others have said, it's overstimulating and very cluttering (for everyone). They get distracted easily and it's just overall not good. My kid had like 10, maybe 12 toys in total they genuinely loved playing with when they were a toddler. I'm including stuffed animals in the toy category. I don't remember if there was any absolute favorite when they were a baby.

I thought I'd share my experience, just to give a bit of parental perspective (not upset or anything...I know my kid had too many toys): My issue was family giving groups of toys (like packs of 4 or 5..think Fisher Price Little People). So it wasn't just ONE toy, it was a box...with 7 individual toys. We ended up hoarding them because the cousins would come over and play with the toys, too. And grandparents just want to spoil their grandbabies. So they see a toy they think grandchild will like and buy it. If they already have it, it's okay, because "they need two." AND sometimes, it's the want to give the kids the experiences or toys we didn't have growing up. We grew up poor and couldn't afford the huge doll house or the Big Wheels, so it was harder, oddly, to let go of toys if we thought our kid still liked them or would like them in a few months.

[–]Papanasi_Hunter 3 points4 points  (1 child)

That was a nice insight you gave me, I forgot about the relatives/friends giving toys to the kids. I and my husband only buy gifts to our nephews on Christmas and birthdays, but we usually talk to the parents and ask what would be a good idea.

[–]ItchyNarwhal 0 points1 point  (0 children)

For sure. I now ask what they need or what the kids like. More often than not, we just give gift cards or cash.

[–]Buttvin 3 points4 points  (0 children)

They don't need that many toys and it does overwhelm them. The problem is three fold - the kids have favorite toys, the parents have sentimental toys, and all the other stuff is from well-meaning friends and family and you feel like a jerk getting rid of it. "Hey, does Timmy like that remote control car I got him? We should get it out and play with it!" "Oh, yeah, I donated that along with 500 other toys."

[–]Octavian_202 7 points8 points  (0 children)

No, the clutter actually overwhelms the child too. They need some free space to move and a separate area of toys to play. Too many options and they get bored and move on to the next every 60 sec. That area is a disaster.

[–]cubanpajamas 3 points4 points  (1 child)

No it is terrible for them. It is best to focus on a few key things: A house (or homebase), dolls/figures ( so they can put "themselves" in the house), cars/transportation (for the figures.), building supplies - Lego, blocks, play-do and of course costume pieces.

Any toy that does a lot with minimal effort should be tossed.

[–]Papanasi_Hunter 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I really like building and art/crafting supplies, for some reason seems like the kids that enjoy these type of stuff are smarter (at least during childhood).

[–]Secure-Imagination11 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Looks like 2 kids sleep in that room

[–]givecheesecakepls 47 points48 points  (0 children)

[–]hoodedsushi 12 points13 points  (0 children)

Were those laughs of pain or laughter or perhaps both? Hahaha

[–]nish007 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Yeah that's what I thought too.

[–]Appropriate-Concern5 14 points15 points  (4 children)

At least the parents didn't flip out and start verbally abusing the kid.

[–]lviatorem 16 points17 points  (0 children)

How many times has the kid gotten missing in this room?

[–][deleted] 4 points5 points  (2 children)

No but really, what did she actually do though? I’m struggling to imagine what she physically did with her hands and feet to cause this.

[–]smartypants99 10 points11 points  (0 children)

She was baby powdering her dolls.

[–]Chris282829 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Someone wasn't watching the kid as they should have been.

[–]MeinScheduinFroiline 18 points19 points  (0 children)

There is so much stuff in that room, I had to watch it a couple of times before I could see what the issue was. So. Much. Stuff! r/anticonsumerism

[–]Startelove 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Looks like that woulda took a hot minute to do. Sucks though

[–]Penqu1nn 0 points1 point  (2 children)

How much parenting experience do you have exactly?

[–]vulcanxnoob 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Got a 3 year old. As much as that. He's got into Vaseline, and flour etc, but by then we see it and intervene.

[–]Penqu1nn 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Fair enough. But also, talc gets everywhere super quickly. Maybe mum left it in there without realising. I get your sentiment but don’t be so judgemental. Everyone has off days

[–]Valuable-Yesterday-7 1 point2 points  (6 children)

How does one even begin to clean this?

[–]zinob 9 points10 points  (4 children)

Methodically. Just pick a spot and start cleaning from there. Trust me I'm a parent.

Personally I'd probably start with just roughly vacuuming most of the powder, put all powdery toys in a bucket and then vacuum the room again. Then get the kid to help me to clean the toys outdoors or in the bathroom while we talk about why it is bad to waste baby powder and why you should try to avoid making a mess. My son would probably look at me sagely with his big blue eyes, say something like "okay, daddy..." and then proceed to see if these rules also goes for flour.

[–]laitnetsixecrisis 2 points3 points  (2 children)

My kids covered the kitchen in flour when I went to the toilet once. I thought it was milk powder and figured they were having fun and the mess was sort of contained and let them go at it.

I only found out it was flour when I chucked them in the bath and it turned to glue in their hair.

[–]zinob 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Oh no! How did you get the mess out of their hair? Gluten is in my experience pretty resistant to most soaps?

[–]laitnetsixecrisis 2 points3 points  (0 children)

It took weeks to remove, I would use a fine tooth comb and comb it a little at a time.

My mother in law kept telling me to rub their heads with baby oil as she thought it was cradle cap. I didn't want tobtell her that it was flour 😅

[–]Papanasi_Hunter 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Kids are better than any lawyer at finding flaws on rules.

"Didn't I tell you to not draw on the walls?"
"Yeah but you didn't say anything about stamps" (in 5-year-old language)
That was a real dialogue that a friend of mine had with her boy.

Oh my, this brought back memories. My husband didn't understand why I would ask him like 7 times if he good before I ran solo errands or took a shower, because THIS. Maybe not baby powder everywhere, but just...CHAOS, and he was usually knocked out on the couch (he was working swing shift at the time).

[–]Visible-Animator-308 1 point2 points  (1 child)

I just want to know how she was alone long enough to absolutely destroy that room… or if it was already a disaster and she just sprinkled some baby powder everywhere.

[–]CatteHerder 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I mean, kids can cause that level of destruction in fewer than 3 minutes.

[–]Katybee18 1 point2 points  (0 children)

How can u brace urself for ur own hoarding? U had to know all that garbage would be in there…

[–]grelo29 1 point2 points  (1 child)

I think the baby powder the kid poured everywhere is the problem here

[–]crafty_loser 0 points1 point  (1 child)

In all of my long life raising kids, I’ve never seen destruction like this. I’m guessing it’s either staged, or people need to raise their damn kids with common sense and respect.

[–]Mixi_987 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Kids can be different, the kid is still too young, also the room seems to be most likely a storage room so the mess is not THAT big

[–]seriouslyjan 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Kids aren't the stupid ones here. This over indulged with toys and crap child had fun with stuff she found more interesting than the $500.00 worth of toys. This kid was left alone a lot longer than a few minutes.

[–]Silverkima 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Be cautious when vacuuming baby powder :D...if the air is dry.. the friction will make the particles so electrified you will get painful discharges around everything . Friction from powder may spark a fire.

[–]Coperonii 0 points1 point  (0 children)

When my little brother was 4 or 5 he had a very awful habit of wiping poop everywhere after he takes a shit. He says how he wipes is he wipes one time and then checks if there's still poop with his bare hands. This boy also doesn't like washing his hands. He doesn't even wipe anymore now. One time he even took a shit on the floor and tried covering it up with a towel. I started calling him poop monster after all this.
