Unfortunately, a good deal of everything happened this week.
Sweet Boy#3–I slip onto the porch to talk to the Hunky Hubby and Sweet Boy#3 takes this two minute opportunity to crawl up onto the bathroom sink, seize the glass jar full of toothbrushes, and smash them into the toilet bowl. Good news, glass shards do not flush.
Sweet Boy#2–Dampens a rag and wipes down the table with it. Bad news, his “rag” was a used handkerchief.
Sweet Boy#2–I decorate our dinning room table for the first time in years. A crystal bowl filled with fresh fruit. Sweet Boy#2 adds toy snakes and a glass of water to the mix.
Sweet Boy#3–Is playing in the yard with brothers and sees that “Greedy One” the squirrel has eaten the peanut butter off a crust and kicked it onto the ground. What to do? What to do? Of course…he eats it.
Sweet Boy#2–Is in his bedroom for a moment and takes the time to rip a book in half and poor grape-juice into our cool air humidifier.
Sweet Boy#3–I step into the office to cry over vacation plans on the Hunky Hubbies chest and our youngest dumps a full box of life cereal into the rocking chair.
Sweet Boy#2 and Sweet Boy#3–Dip some small animal shaped sponges into a cup of yogurt and paint on the carpet.
Sweet Boy#2 and Sweet Boy#3–Sneak my four highlighters out of my bible cover and bite the tips off the markers.
But the winner this week…
Sweet Boy#3–Dumps dog food onto dinning room floor. Meticulously sweeps it up, deposits it into the garbage can, carries full garbage can into the living room, and dumps the whole thing onto the living room carpet. Dog hair, dog food, papers, cereal…it’s all over. Then as he is cleaning up this new fiasco, I discover that “clean up” in his mind consists of smashing various clean stuffed animals and school supplies into the garbage can along with all the garbage. There is only one thing to say…Ahhhhhhhhh!
Let’s just say that much discipline occurred this week. Did it work? I’ll tell you next week.
