Is this my life? Really??

A few weeks ago my sister called me and the conversation went something like this:
Michele:  Hey, what are you doing?
Me: Um, just trying to get pictures of Miller drinking from Hank’s water bowl with a bendy straw.
Michele:  Rolls around laughing hysterically telling anyone who will listen what is going on here at my house.
Me:  Is that wrong?
For me, that isn’t all that unusual.  Yes, this is my life.
My pictures didn’t turn out of that scene.

This my nemesis.

Miller just lets the water free flow any chance he gets. 
Three times.  Three times while writing this post he got into the water.  Yes, I know what you’re thinking!.  That’s annoying!
Yesterday Miller and I went for a bike ride.  I came home, turned on Curious George for Miller and went upstairs to change the sheets.  I was fully expecting to see 453 Legos on the floor when I came down.
This is a pretty typical sight

To my delight, I saw my child sitting on the sofa watching Curious George intently.  Finally, I thought.  It was a hard road getting to that one time where he didn’t destroy the house when left alone.  I was pretty proud. 
That’s why a little while later, I was looking for something upstairs and I came down to see he had gotten into something, I realized it wasn’t really his fault.  it was mine.  I was too proud.
I was able to grab my camera and document it though!  The pictures aren’t fine photography, but they will give you a good laugh!

Yes, this is my life, and I wouldn’t have it any other way!

  1. I too have some experience with my children (it was usually Grace) getting into things. Some of them were really unmentionable... once I actually called Bryce at work and made him come home. Oh, wait. I also called him the time I found the children naked in the attic creating a water slide. That was awesome.

  2. P.S. What's your temperature? We've had a low of 2 degrees and an insane amount of snow... more coming tonight. Miss it?
