What a Day! And It Isn't Over Yet.....

My darling child....I do love her so.  But this morning was crazy.  I've started calling her a little bear when she gets wild and cranky.  This morning, she was a grizzly!  The plan was to go to playgroup at 10:00.  Yeah, that didn't happen.

I was here at the computer early this morning when I heard paper being torn in the living room.  I debated whether or not to check on her or just leave her alone since she was leaving ME alone.  I decided I should be a mom, so I went to see what was going on.  What a mess, I should have taken a picture.

Later I was trying to put makeup on when I heard something that wasn't right.  It sounded like metal being dropped on the floor.  That's not the best description, but this is what I found:

How did she break the bulb off without breaking the glass?  So thankful she didn't decide to bite the lightbulb!

I won't go into the details as to why she is shirtless.  You don't want to know.  But rather than redress her before giving her a bath, I just left her half naked.  Back to the bathroom, try to finish getting myself dressed, I hear giggling and find this:


I put everything back in the drawer, move her to another location with plenty of toys to play with, back to the closet to get clothes for myself, go to check on her after it had been quiet for more than a minute and find this:


This time, I just left it.  I had to get out of the house before my screams and laughter turned into tears.

Now the grizzly is in bed asleep.  But now she is more like a teddy bear rather than a grizzly bear.  What a blessing my little bear is, even if things don't go as planned, thanks to her.  I just "can't wait" to see what the afternoon holds!  First, though, I must go clean up the mess that we left this morning.  aaahhhhh!!!!

The last picture made me laugh. It is hard to keep the house clean where there is a mini hurricane moving through it at night...I only pick up once a day after they go to bed. What a day indeed!

Ha ha! Oh, with that mischevious look on her face- you are in for it! Good thing she is so darn cute!

Erin, why do I even try throughout the day? Actually, I don't try that hard. It's usually cleanup time after she's in bed for me also. And Elizabeth, yes, that mischievous grin....oh dear. What a mess she is!

I swear that God makes babies so cute, just so we'll continue to roll with the punches they throw! And isn't nap time a blessing?!?

I heard laughing and squealing in the other room--check in on Emma. She was squealing as she pulled ALL the wet wipes from the box. Little stinker!
