Helpful Children & Paul's New Time Out

Why is it that when you want your kids to be helpful they're not, and when you don't need them to be they are? Today while I jumped in the shower I left the baby in the highchair with some Lucky Charms. I made sure to take out the marshmellows since they of course are too big for him to eat. Well...while I was in the shower Morgon comes running in yelling "MOM! MOM! Paul gave the baby more cereal!" Needless to say when I finally got out, most of them had found their way to the floor or had been eaten by the 4 three year olds. This is what I found. He had dumped over half of the box on his tray. I love helpful kids!!

Do you notice Paul's little eyes ? He was hiding from me:)

Now on to story #2...

I was in vacuuming the family room when Morgon comes in and says "Mom, Paul is stuck on the drawer!"(do you see a pattern here? Paul getting in trouble and Morgon snitching on him) I said "Stuck on a drawer, what are you talking about?" So I ran in to see what was going on and this is what I found!! He had been on the counter getting a banana and while trying to get down, caught is undies on the knob of the drawer. He couldn't get off and it was the FUNNIEST thing I have ever seen!!! I am so glad we found a new time out spot for our mess maker:)


Look at his little buns hanging out:0)


Isn't that the saddest face ever? (this was after I told him I was going to leave him there)

When I had Porter a good friend of mine, Nancy Thornhill, came to visit me in the hospital and she brought me this book called "So you want to raise a boy" and she told me that she would babysit for me whenever I needed her to as soon as Porter was at least two, but she preferred three year olds. I didn't know what she meant by that, but now that I have 4 three year olds I know exactly what she means. They are a hoot!! If they don't have you screaming and pulling your hair out then they have you rolling on the floor dieing of laughter. I wish Nancy was still here with us cause she would LOVE coming to visit!!

Paul looks like he and makenzie would get along great...I cracked up at his pictures..too funny! Even more funny that you made him stay there while you took a picture! Looks like a good picture to keep and show when he is about 16....

how funny is that. Make sure you hold onto that one you can use it for blackmail one day. What would we do without 3 yr. olds. Our lives sure would be boring.

My favorite thing is that you wait to remedy anything until you've documented it for the blog...a true blogger there! Boys always keep things exciting! haha :)
