They say that when you're a parent you learn to grow eyes in the back of your head. Well, this UK dad might want to consider growing eyes in the back of the fridge because his toddler Olivia just proved you can't leave even leave a kid alone for ten minutes.
When dad Araron Jeff Whitehall from Nottingham, England, decided to pull a bold move and literally just leave the room, his daughter Olivia decided to go in on some yogurt. Only 18 containers of it. Don't ask me how—this is a toddler secret and the reason why they're such fearsome creatures.
He Was Gone For Only Ten Minutes
What do you do in ten minutes? Go the bathroom maybe, send an email, drink a glass of water—nothing too wild or that will land you in a record book. Well, toddler logic apparently doesn't care about having a regular day because it only took that short span of time for the 3-year-old Olivia to polish off 18 containers of yogurt.
Dad Aaron went outside briefly since he thought that all would be fine since she's, you know, 3 years old and strapped into a high chair. But apparently he forgot that toddlers are creatures of chaos, because Olivia somehow managed to open all 18 with her tiny human thumbs and just go to town.
Whitehall's Son Was The First To See The Yogurt Carnage
Since every crime has a witness and Olivia hasn't learned yet that she's got to keep them quiet by letting them in on the Yoplait spoils, her 6-year-old brother Oscar was the first to notice and tell dad. As any normal person would do when there's more yogurt than toddler at the scene.
Oscar went outside and told dad who came right in. Whitehall said that it's not unusual for them to have that much yogurt in the house since his partner Billie Hardy buys the snacks for their kids and the ones she works with. Olivia probably just wanted to claim her stake in the prize.
When Will She Dairy To Strike Again?
Whitehall said when he noticed the absolute carnage he asked her if she ate all of them, to which she said "yes." Olivia is clearly proud of her feat, and honestly, we respect that kind of commitment to the craft since we've all eaten an entire bag of shredded cheese in one sitting.
Whitehall said Olivia didn't even have an upset stomach after the incident, which is clearly a testament to toddler strength. These kids can't be tamed no matter how many peel-off lids we put in their way, so we can only be ready to play damage control when they turn the chaos switch to "on."
