Why Toddlers & Flour Don't Mix (VIDEO)

kids get into flourWarning: The following video will cause you extreme anxiety, especially now that we're in prime baking season. Basically, it's the aftermath of two toddlers who got into one bag of flour. There is nothing basic, however, about the mess that's left.

It doesn't sound that bad. One measly bag of flour couldn't possibly do more damage than a little vacuuming could handle, right? Wrong, oh so very wrong. Just watch:


I get serious heart palpitations just watching. It's one of those things that could happen to any of us, in the blink of an eye. As the mom who posted the video on YouTube wrote:

Mommy was not feeling well and had to stay in the bathroom longer than usual during which my two boys, ages 1 and 3 took my new bag of flour out of the cupboard and destroyed my house. This is from ONE 5lb bag. Don't believe me? Hand a full bag to a 3 year old and see what happens.

It almost looks staged, because it's so awful. But no one in their right mind would ever do that on purpose. All she can say is "oh my gosh." I'm amazed at her calm demeanor; I think I would be more ballistic.

That flour is everywhere! From the pictures on the walls to the crevices of the television to the upholstery on the furniture, I have no idea how they will ever clean up all that flour. We've had some glitter incidents that have been pretty traumatic, but never anything close to this kind of disaster. I imagine them finding traces of it for years to come ... and locking up the baking supplies from here on out.

What's the biggest mess your kids have ever caused?
