Spill Paralysis

I have diagnosed a new and dangerously annoying “disorder” that plagues my children, and maybe yours as well – Spill Paralysis.

Spill Paralysis is the illogical, unnatural and uncanny inability of my children to move, speak, react or even think in reaction to spilling something.

Case in point: Today, upon spilling the remaining milk and cereal in her bowl, my seven-year old sat there – soaked in milk, staring at her mess, incapable of asking for help, starting to clean up her mess, or respond to her father’s questions about what happened.

This is not the first time Spill Paralysis has struck my children, and I’m sure it will not be the last.  Can someone please find a cure?  Pretty please?  Thanks.



I am a daughter, sister, wife, mother, friend, middle school counselor, a music and animal lover, a mac-preferer and a work in progress. I haven't had enough sleep in six years, but my life is one heck of a ride - care to join me on my adventures?
