just caught sweetPea with a screwdriver trying to lock the cover on the piano. yes, he got the screwdriver from the drawer all by himself!
we have a piano that dates back to the late 1800's. the piano came from hunny's family and was recently shared with us. when we first received the piano, hunny tried to lock the piano with a screwdriver in hopes that we would be able to keep little fingers from playing without supervision.
monkey see, monkey do, monkey get in trouble too!!!
do you ever wake up knowing the day will not go as you planned? not sure what that feeling is but you just know with every inch of your being that it will be one of those days!
well, that is the case for us today. nothing accomplished (with ease anyways), clean rooms to see them messy again, a whole bottle of chocolate sauce poured into a bowl-dripping down the side-onto the pantry shelf-onto the floor-and all over baby, more breakfast & lunch on the floor and table than in mouths, milk spilt, dog drool, dishes piled undone, poop diapers bigger and smellier, no cream, no sugar for coffee, baskets full of folded laundry, broken swings, missing blankets, and no rest in sight.
that pretty much sums up the day...and it is only 1:30 in the afternoon! pure exhaustion!!! pure joy!!! because i AM gonna miss this...
nothing like a quick second in your life to "check" you. i woke sweetPea this morning and noticed blood in his crib. no visible sign of a cut on him. but there was blood on the sheet, pjs, blanket, and smeared across his face. so, of course, i called the doctor's office immediately.
the doctor's office told me "toddlers" at this age roll around and are rambunctious in their sleep. okay...i could take that he might be a little rambunctious, after all he is a boy, but what i couldn't take was my baby being called a toddler!
well, we had terminix come today and work on our "little" spider problem. if you missed the post about the spider, check it out here.
while i was explaining to the nice man where most of the problem was occurring, ladyBug popped in with firmness and said, "there is a mouse in my garage and spiders on my playground!!!"
the poor man just giggled and explained to her that he would definitely check on the mouse in the garage and fix the spider problem on the playground 'cause he definitely did not want spiders biting kids.
yesterday was the end to a short holiday for us. we took a break from the "real" world, 10 days spent away from educating at home and 5 days of rest from work. our time included lots of relaxing (as much as you can with three babies) and the enjoyment of just being together.
today, though, we hit the floor running, running head first into reality. daddy returned to crazy days at the office, the bambinos back to fun-packed days at school, and mommy back to the blessed duties of a homemaker and teacher. whew!!! i call dibs on an early bedtime...
