Toddlers laughing in the kitchen.....

As a parent you should know that two or more kids in a room out of site from parents almost always equals trouble. With that being said, I will share my story...
Yesterday, while at my sister's house my daughter and her son who are 10 months old and a two year old were playing together in the kitchen, just out of our line of sight and all of the sudden we hear giggling. So, I ask my sister what do you think they are doing in there? She said probably getting into trouble. We both kind of laugh, but neither of us go in and check on them, after all they sound happy so no need to go upset them and our peace.
A few minutes later my daughter comes crawling into the living room and her face is covered in something white. That is when I start to worry and go into the kitchen to see what they were into. On the floor there is a hospital measuring beaker the my sister uses to warm up her daughter's bottles in, and in the bottom is a white paste like substance. I run out into the living room and show my sister and ask if she thinks they got into soap. She says no I don't have powdered soap. So I start listing thing off like flour and she exclaims Powdered Sugar!!! Because the night before they had crepes for dinner and there had been about a quarter cup of powdered sugar on the counter.
What had happened was, her son had got the beaker with the water down from the island earlier and spilled most of it on the floor and my sister had sat it back up on it's bottom but not put it up out of his reach, because she got distracted. Then the sugar was at a distance she thought was out of his reach on the counter, but as we found out not quite far enough back from the edge. Her son watches her make rolls and bread a lot, so having observed the act of mixing ingredients on multiple occasions, he concocted his own little recipe.
It's funny how much lids pick up from observation that they use when you least expect it.
