News Update...

In case you haven't been keeping up with the reports over on Desperately Avoiding Housework, here's a quick summary: The Baby is bad.

That's all you really need to know.

Today I went to the restroom for a minute and heard him around the corner saying "Uh-Oh". Oh no. I can't even pee for 30 seconds without him getting into something!!



He'd found black acrylic paint and dumped the bottle. I didn't even know I owned black acrylic paint, but apparently so! Well, I don't anymore because, you know, he coated himself and the kitchen in it. All over the countertops, my baking stone, the floor, the dining room chair that he pushes around the house to use as a ladder... Oy.

I put him in his high chair (which he can also easily climb out of) so I could clean up the kitchen.


Then we went out to get a few groceries. He was screaming and having a fit so I got a bottle of water to entertain him while I tossed random things into my cart and ran through the store. And sure enough, he got angry about something and dumped the bottle of water over the top of all the groceries. I'm never taking this child in public again until he's 5. Ever. Seriously. He brings me to tears every time I try it. He's bad.

Fortunately he's taking a nap at the moment, which is practically unheard of for him so I have a few moments of peace.

Ahhhhh......

On a totally unrelated note, I listed this necklace yesterday. It makes me think of the ocean. And warmth. And sand. And no babies making messes or screaming...

I remember those days. Unfortunately, my choice of paint was oil...ugh! But they do grow up eventually....

That's a beautiful necklace.

oh honey, I am with you 100%. My kid's usually choose permanent markers and draw on my walls... but I SO know the feeling. And I love the necklace (and all it stands for!).

Awwwwww, sorry you had such a hard day!

I had THREE little boys and remember many many messes ... such as when the first two were very little and my mother (WHAT was she thinking?) bought them WHITE shorts. I got them all dressed up for a birthday party, sent them out to the car, and came out TWO MINUTES later and they'd climbed up on the greasy lawn mower on the way to the car...yikes!

He's so adorable ~ can't imagine him screaming in the Store. LOVE this Post ~

I'm still laughing that you didn't even know you HAD black paint. :) I thought things like this only happened to me.

I ask my husband often - why did we want children?!?! Now my boys are teenagers. Just wait until he's a teenager.
