I would say boys are trouble, but........

It seems like not that long ago I was dealing with Lucy doing all sorts of fun things like this. I have a journal of just things my sweet Lucy did. She was TROUBLE, she now is wonderful, but I could not leave her alone for one second and things were in serious condition. I know most of you probably think that of your child at one point in time but now that I'm to #3 I am seeing Lucy was really a handful, and her brother is not too far from being the same way.

How could I be mad at a face like that when I got out of bed this morning. Scott had gotten up and took Talmadge out of bed, changed his diaper and got him ready for the day, while I was sound asleep still. When I woke up it was really queit and I heard a little talking out front, so I got up and to my amazement my whole cupboard was on the floor emptied with Talmadge in the middle of it all. Apparantly Dad didn't know he was hungry.
The picuture does not do it justice but, 3 different types of cereals all poured out on the floor, instant oatmeal packages opened 8 to be exact. 3 hot chocolate bags opened. Saran wrap unwound, all of my ziploc baggies scattered along with the brown lunch sacks for Lucy, and the start of aluminum foil being torn and thrown all over. I really am a good mom, it just seems when I try and take a moment to sleep, relax, work on the computer, clean, do laundry, cook, I turn around and another room is destroyed........but I really love my children. They keep me on my toes, and to think we still want more, sometime I wonder about my sanity.

Fist off...Talmadge looks like a little boy now, what happened to BABY T????????

Second, that's exactly why I have a lock on my pantry door! I SOOOO don't trust Ellie. SHe would be climbing the shelves to get what she wants.

I laughed at these pics. Isn't it amazing what kids can do in such a short time?
