Something Smells Fishy Around Here


My almost three-year-old decided our fish needed to be fed … So, with that in mind, he dumped two *entire* containers of food into their tank this morning! Oy! Hopefully, the little guppies will survive. Where was I when this was all happening? Well, I was still trying to clean up the mango smoothie that had been thrown all over our upstairs carpet. These kiddos are keeping me on my toes!

Sugar Rush

And the number one reason NOT to leave the first birthday cake next to the baby on the drive home…

This was taken when we arrived home after my little sister’s first birthday party. At least someone got to enjoy the leftover cake.

Her hair! Her beautiful hair!

So in the four years my daughter has been alive, she has done it all. Baby oil, shampoo pasted bathroom; baby powder snowstorms, fingernail polish in the carpet, fried two DVRs with juice…you name it she has done it!

The latest though..literally brought me to tears. In a matter of ten minutes alone, she scaled the bathroom cabinet, got Daddy’s beard scissors from the top shelve of the medicine cabinet and…

I walk into the playroom to find her huddled in the corner, the room covered in hair! I screamed, “Why?, your hair…your beautiful hair!”

She claimed she was trying to make a beautiful hairstyle. She is now wearing hats, everywhere we go! There are literally chunks missing everywhere, none of it is salvageable.

Here are the after pics…
