Sometimes I just don't know about them...

The things my kids do baffle me sometimes.

Last week on Thursday night I worked until midnight so I didn't set my alarm for Friday morning. Clay woke up early to nurse so I just brought him to my bed & I fell back to sleep. I woke up around 7:30 & couldn't believe the girls were still sleeping. Around 7:50 I got up only to see the lights on in the house & Addison standing in front of the pantry holding a big spoon full of flour.

I took the flour away from her & she ran to hide under the dining room table where she had a cup full of sugar. I guess she wanted to make her own breakfast; Darlene said that if she just added butter she could make shortbread!

Earlier in the week I was in & out of the bathroom while getting the girls' bath water ready. I wandered back in to find Kate had climbed into the tub - fully clothed!!! Even her jacket was on. Addison even convinced her to sit down & Kate happily sat there playing.

The real kicker was that we had been at the park & it was COLD and I didn't want to take a chance that Kate would have any accidents so she was wearing a diaper. When I started undressing her I discovered she had not only sat in the tub with all of her clothes on but had also gone number two in the diaper! I then had to empty the tub & clean it before starting on the bath again.

One of many reasons why it's not helpful to ask a mom: "What did you do all day?"

reminds me of the time when Jesse was about 1 1/2 and I thought it seemed very quiet in the house. When I found her she had colored her nose with a permanent black marker - and I mean completely covered it totally black.
