Cleaning your house while your Kids are still growing is like shoveling the walk before it stops snowing
Today was a day in which I truly believe in the header of this blog! My kids, especially Lucas should be grateful to be alive:) He has been super hard to control. He is very active, way more than Ashley has ever been, and is constantly making a mess which drives me insane!!! I never quit cleaning this house and I am constantly changing his clothes and bathing him. I sometimes don't enjoy being at home because all I do is clean up after him. I try to keep him outside as much as possible but it just isn't enough!! I am sure that his behavior his "normal" but I just haven't adjusted to the messes that he constantly makes so I am going crazy... A few weeks ago they had Oreos on sale so I went nuts and got tons. I love Oreos with milk. Well Tim decided to teach Ashley how to eat Oreos with milk on Sunday afternoon and she loved it so it has been part of her "healthy" snack. Today I was so busy getting all of the summer outfits out of the closet and putting the fall and winter outfits in so as you can imagine both of their rooms were messy and the living room was full of clothes! I tried to find things for the kids to do that would keep them busy so I could finish it all in one afternoon when Ashley asked me to have some Oreos with milk and I asked her to share some with Lucas. Ten minutes later she calls me to come and see the "Ollo." I had no idea what she was talking about until I saw the milk with the Oreo on the rug and some Oreo on the carpet and on their clothes! I asked Ashley what happened and of course...Who do you think did it?? Lucas...He had the biggest smile ever so I went to get my camara. Otherwise, I don't know what I would have done.
Later they wanted popsicles and as you can see in the picture he threw his on the floor!! Later he took all the spoons out of the drawer and was playing with them and I also found him hanging from a drawer in the kitchen. After taking a bath he went back to the bathroom and got himself wet again while Ashley was still in the water ( I was gone for 5 seconds!!) and then decided to try to get inside the dishwasher... Ok, Is my child "normal"???
