Harrowing/Heartwarming Parent Moment of the Week

The Harrowing/Heartwarming Parent Moment of the Week

So much for heartwarming, we had too much mayhem to ignore. I’m afraid that this week I’ll be mostly documenting the mayhem. Although they are all irreparably sweet of course.

Sweet Boy #2 was going poop, Sweet Boy #1 snuck into the bathroom with him and dumped 1/2 an enormous sized bottle of Gold Bond Medicated Powder all over the bathroom and then Sweet Boy #3 broke into his brother’s new tool set and actually bopped Sweet Boy #2 with a hammer. I could barely breathe when I was giving them their baths because of all the Gold Bond in the air, but I got them and the house pretty much cleaned up before bed…mostly.

Sweet Boy #3 pilfered the syrup bottle and poured it onto the carpet.

Sweet Boy #2 and Sweet Boy #3 dumped a bran new, only used once, tub of Nestles Quick onto our beanbags and living room carpet. Sweet Boy #2 snatched it off the counter and gave it to Sweet Boy #3 who immediately rushed to do the whole dumping thing…Aaaargh!

Sweet Boy #3 broke both arms off of the hunky hubbies glasses and popped out a lense.

But the winner this week.

As often occurs, Sweet Boy #2 had to go poop and needed a little help wiping.  A job which takes all of 1.4 minutes. During that time, Sweet Boy #1 constructed a bridge between his top bunk bed and his little brother’s crib, out of a camp bunk bed mattress. And quickly convinced Sweet Boy #3 to crawl across the newly constructed bridge. Which he did…but only part way. Gravity is a cruel mistress.


I promise you a crazed animal, a concussion, and a kiss in every single book...you're welcome!
