Well here we are again. I kind of gave up on blogging because I simply did not have time to blog I told myself, which is pretty sad considering it really only takes a few seconds to upload pictures to a blog. But alas, even seconds are hard to come by with these 4 crazy rugrats running all over the place.
But...I have decided to start it up again, because, like my sister in-law Nicole, I want to have some record of the craziness that is my life, and I guess here is as good a place as any.
So on to the first post....
A few days ago Austin was having a really tough day. (Let's face it, it's actually more days than not that he's having a tough day.) But this day was worse than usual. He had been creating problems and destroying pretty much anything he could for the better part of an afternoon. So after he completely unrolled an entire roll of toilet paper in the bathroom, Ryan promptly sent him to "Time Out."
After quite some time we hadn't heard anything from him, I realized that it was way to quiet upstairs. Fearing the worst....(there's a lot more toilet paper to be had upstairs) I sent Ryan to go check on him.
And he found him like this.......
|Poor little guys was simply all tuckered out. He had fallen right to sleep in the middle of his floor.|
For Thanksgiving we had my sister Amelia come with her girls. Yeah cousins! It was so fun. Growing up, us girls would always slide down our stairs in sleeping bags for fun. I had completely forgotten this, and my boys have never done it. So it was so fun to be reminded! They had so much fun together.
Decided I should probably get Carter on here too.
Yesterday Carter and Brandon were in the bath and I went up to check on them and the water was still running and getting way to high. I turned it off and Carter said that he wanted it higher, so I explained to him that there was a drain up towards the top of the tub that drained water out once it reached a certain level, in order to prevent the tub from overflowing.....so no. the water could not go higher.
So today we are having a pleasant evening, doing some coloring... and I think I hear water running somewhere.....yes,, there is water running,,,, hmmm, not in the kitchen......I go to the bathroom, the door is closed and the light is off, but yes, there is definitely a sound of water running from the bathroom. I open the door........Oh my.
The bathroom sink is on at full blast and the drain lever is pulled up so that the drain is closed. The sink is full to overflowing and water is spilling out everywhere all over the floor. As I am screaming and demanding an explanation for this, it becomes apparent that Carter is the culprit here. Upon further questioning he admitts that he did this because apparently he assumed there would be absolutely no harm in it. Because he noticed here too, there is a drain up high in the sink. That drains water when it gets too high. Guess he thought he was going to have to test that.
