lyndon, lyndon, lyndon...




In the last 24 hours Lyndon has:




a) drawn a mural on the playroom floor with a crayola black marker.




b) after I SCOURED the house and banished ALL writing utensils, he, by some miraculous detective work, found a green PERMANENT marker and wrote all over the carpet in my office.




c) while he was "in bed" he filled up a toy that looks (and acts as) a huge bowl, using the bathroom sink and proceeded to dump the warm water in the hall...several times. Incidentally, Maddie, trying to clean-up the mess, pulled out EVERY SINGLE TOWEL AND SHEET from the hall closet and began sopping up the mess.




d) found an old pen that no longer worked and SOMEHOW managed to extract the ink from inside the pen and "tattoo" himself. (see the above pictures..ink on his leg and on his hand.)



I know what you're thinking,..."Katie, why don't you WATCH that kid?



if you only knew.



if you only knew.


P.S. Even though I wanted to strangle the kid every time I discovered his devilish acts, I couldn't help but laugh out loud as I was typing this. especially as I pictured him filling up that HUGE bowl with water and carry it down the hall, spill it and start all over. I wonder what his goal was?

Boys are a never ending adventure! I can so relate to your stories! I think we have experienced something similar to everything you described! But what can you do but enjoy the journey? One day we'll look back and miss the murals on our walls and furniture right?

Thats my boy, just love him anyway!
He could be 22 and there might be messes you couldn't clean up. They are only little for such a short time. Oh to be 2 again.

I love it!! Most parents could not find the humor in such crazy things! Lyndon is a very lucky boy that he has a mom that can find humor!! I love that kid, I had to laugh while reading that post! I truly fill your pain! Probably not as bad but I still feel it!! Love ya Kate!

As Conner is nearing the age of 2 I am understanding this post more and more. Just today I picked up all the books from the floor that he had pulled down from the bookshelf, as I was doing that he wen into the kitchen and emptied my lid drawer, and as I cleaned up that he went ds and enptied one of the drawers. It's a never-ending tornado here. I love boys!
