little kid's Morning Accomplishments

-found every Sharpie in the house (well, put them up you say...there is no up here. I could superglue the Sharpies to the ceiling fan blades and he would be able to find them immediately and retrieve them momentarily. He cannot be kept away from these things. They cannot be hidden and cannot be put away, he always either has another one or gets them back.)

-dumped out the art box

-got into my jewelry box and took handfuls of jewelry into the bathroom before being caught

-stole cookies from pantry, dumped out bag, stomped on them gleefully

-put cookie crumbs in his and his brother's juice

-put a penny in his mouth

-keeps getting into office drawers, found with a box of thumb tacks, threw rubber bands around

and it's only 10am. The next time out is going to be an Extended Time Out.

I say strap his behind into the car seat!

He's just full of piss and vinegar today, isn't he?

Wow, he has been quite the busy bee today! Is it too early for a nap?

I'm giggling a little thinking about you getting one of those large at home safes, with a combination dial, just for your sharpies and cookies...sorry.
*lol*

Buy a nice, heavy duty throw rug. When he gets rambuncious, throw the rug down, throw the kid down and then roll him up in the rug. he'll think this is great fun until he realizes a) you're not unrolling the rug and b) rolled up rug is REALLY hard to get out of. Like it could take DAYS.

My sister has one kitchen cabinet that she keeps screwed shut. Every day when they need medicine or anything else hidden in there, they go get the drill and unscrew it, then screw it right back shut.

Hopefully little kid will soon grow out of this phase, or you will get the wonderful job and have time to get away. Love your blog, even though I am one of the shy ones. However, you have an award at my blog waiting for you...

Is it a full moon today or what? Mine have both been demonic together. Your little kid and my youngest sound like identical twins. Well, minus the neon green arm cast mine is sportin' from all his antics... Hope you get that time to yourself... because I'm sure we're all dying for that update!

He has a strong love for office supplies. Guess you can do your Christmas shopping for lk at Staples this year.

Some days don't you wish you could super glue them to the floor? If we didn't have a kiddie pool, I would lose my mind! It is a great incentive not to bug mom. Plus I can sit on my butt with a drink on the patio pretending to watch the boogers.

Muddypelican, that's hilarious! And brilliant at the same time.

Little kid must be mad at you for leaving him for your interview yesterday. Pay back time!

well, if it makes you feel any better, my precious darling daughter set a roll of paper towels on fire saturday night!! Oh, the Sharpies, I feel your pain she drew a line from the downstairs family room (in RED) halfway up the stairs before being caught! If I didn't think I would go to jail I would have written LITTLE SHIT on her forhead in SHARPIE RED!!

The children are asleep now, right? I hope you're sitting somewhere with your feet up, drinking a cocktail (or seven)!
