Oh This Kid!



Oh boy! Where do I begin? This one has a mind of her own... both of my kids do, but who do you know that at one and a half has her own sense of style? Her hair, shoes, clothing, and more....

Yesterday I was trying to get ready for the day and she was pulling everything out of every drawer and it was mess after mess and I couldn't finish getting ready. I had to pick Molly up from preschool and so I was trying to hurry. In my attempt to distract her and keep her busy for just a few more minutes I gave her a sippy of chocolate milk and put her on the stool. I was gone for all of 60 seconds and the most and look at what I found....

She had dumped the whole cup of chocolate milk out on the counter and the floor and all over her and was rubbing it all over in a windshield wiper motion just happy as could be. The lid was still totally on her cup. The only thing that I could come up with is that she had pushed the lid in and let all of the milk out! Oh boy! I sure do love her but there are some messes that I could do without!

Today in Relief Society the lesson was on prayer. The teacher asked when do we pray. What ran through my mind was,

"When I walk into the living room to find a hard boil egg smashed on Joci's little table and all over my freshly mopped floor and she is still mashing it with her masher. That way what comes out of my mouth is, 'Well at least you are using the right tool.' instead of screaming and wanting to pull my hair out like my first response is."

I think I know what your feeling. Gotta love independant girls! :)

I swear it is the 2nd child syndrome. Have her break her leg and then she will not be able to go anywhere!?!?!? On second thought, the broken leg sucks too. Oh the joys of toddlers.

Cleaning up messes never ends in my home...and I don't have a household full of kids yet! I would have so much extra time if I didn't spend it cleaning. :)
