A woman has only left her toddler in the room for just 20 minutes, only to return to find the boy fully decorated in Nutella Chocolate.
Clare Fallon, 32, was drying her hair in her bedroom upstairs whilst she thought her son, Harrison Bird, was playing peacefully downstairs.
However, after finishing her beauty regime, Clare returned to her living room to find her three-year-old son covered in the chocolate spread.
After getting the pot of Nutella from a low cupboard, Harrison had proceeded to smother himself and splatter it around the room.
The mother-of-two quickly called an industrial carpet cleaner and showered Harrison for ten minutes, and has since left the Nutella on a shelf he cannot reach.
Clare, from Fleet, Hampshire, said:
“When I walked in and saw him I was very angry and shouted at him that his Dad would be very angry at him.
“I was shocked that he had managed to do this, when I was only out of the room for about 20 minutes maximum.
“I quickly grabbed him and put him in the bath tub and showered the Nutella off of him, and luckily it came off quite quickly.
“But now I can’t help but laugh at the photo, I think it’s absolutely hilarious and everyone who has seen it thinks so too.”
After discovering that her son had covered both his body and the living room in Nutella, panic set in for Clare.
“My first reaction was worry – we had just moved into a new build house and I was worried what my boyfriend was going to say.
“But Harrison continued to slap his thighs, and Nutella kept splattering all over the floor.
“Luckily I managed to get a carpet cleaner to come round very early the next morning and the house was cleaned.
“Now we’ve learnt our lesson to make sure that the Nutella stays on a higher level in the cupboard so he can’t reach it!”
