Monday Quicky!

Imagine my surprise when I went to use the restroom and I found the toilet lid smiling at me:
Courtesy of Little Dude of course.

More Special Gems - With Pictures!

AKA - Not So Wordless Wednesday

Monday I shared some kids say the darnedest things moments, courtesy of Little Dude.

Today I have some funny (to me at least) photos to share.

This one isn't so much HAHA! funny, so much as it is HUH! funny. . . I'm not sure if that even makes sense.

Anyway, since Little Dude developed his love for all things vehicle, he has enjoyed lining them up in a row. I don't remember when I first noticed it. Maybe when he was around 18 months.
An example of a lineup around the dishwasher door.

More recently, he started sometimes organizing the lineups by color. I don't have a picture of this, but he is pretty good at it. Then yesterday, I was watching him play. He decided to organize the vehicles by size:

Little Dude's Special Gems

I really want to name these types of posts: The Sh!t My Kid Says, but in an effort to remain family friendly I will resist. Not sure I achieved that with this title either though. . . but I digress.

It has been over a week since my last post and I blame all the Christmas festivities and general business of life lately. Lets just pretend last week didn't exist - That way, I am still posting rather actively actually! The lack of posting certainly hasn't been for the lack of inspiration. A day without any special gems are rare with Little Dude around.

I am unfortunately not feeling so well today (and neither is he), so I'll keep things short so that I can return to moping around on the couch ASAP.

*Just the other day, I was baking sugar cookies; I had the dough rolled out on the counter and Little Dude came up to me and said, "Oh mommy mommy I wanna watch! You making cookies? Can I watch with my mouth?"

How to Give Yourself a Heart Attack

Step 1:   Buy a giant Elmo balloon for your child's birthday:
Step 2:   Leave it sitting in front of your entry way door once it is done being played with. You get extra points if its also next to an air vent or fan so that it floats around randomly.

Murphy's Law: The Toddler Version

A funny little example of how "what can go wrong, will go wrong" can often does apply when you have a toddler around.

Once you become a parent, there is no allowance for turning off your brain. Even on the weekend. . .

A while back, I had a couple of sponge brushes laying out on the dining room table. I had just finished stencilling the dining area wall. I had packed away the paint and other stencilling equipment immediately, because I knew that leaving them out was just asking for trouble. I figured the brushes alone would be fine though. Besides, they needed to dry after being washed anyway.
Can't make a mess with these if there is no paint right?
