Now Where Did I Put The Bad Decision Chart?

THANKFULLY the chart has been gathering dust, but just when I think I can throw it away, I realize that I had better hold onto it.

I'm not making excuses . . .

OK maybe I am.

On a super busy day, topped off with an equally busy night, she strikes :)

After getting baby ready for bed, and putting the Vaseline on the counter (so Ethan wouldn't be in the middle of it), trying to get dinner started, homework finished, reading done, and then get everything cleaned so I could give the girls haircuts, this is what i found. . .




Yep, Vaseline SMEARED all over her. Arms, shirt, pants, ALL of it. In the middle of all the craziness, she decides it's a good idea to cover herself in Vaseline. BAD DECISION AVRIE!!!

We still had to eat dinner, then I had to cut their hair, so then they could get in the shower. There was no way I had time to stick her in the tub then, so she got to sit on her chair through dinner and hair cuts until it was her turn to bathe. And she cried the WHOLE time. HAPPY DAY.
So after getting everything done, all cleaned up, and everyone in bed, I fell onto the couch. So glad that was finished.
I got up the next morning ready to begin anew and discovered that she peed the bed. Yep, she couldn't stop at the Vaseline, she had to pee the bed. Now this is not a usual occurrence for her or I would be prepared. But as it was, EVERYTHING had to be washed down, mattress and all!
Thanks sweetie pie, that's just what I needed :)

yeah! thanks for the update:) My Mattie and her cousin got in the vaseline once and caked it in their hair. It took weeks to wash out with Dawn dishsoap. Nasty stuff to try and clean up!!

:) Aw come on, Mom! How can you stay mad at a face like hers!! Wanna trade her for Scott?

It's about time you!! My Daphne once took Vaseline and smeared it all over the couch. I eventually had to get rid of it.

Hello Jamie. I forgot to tell you- when Kyle brought your girls to the Gorge this summer, they were the sweetest, most polite, well behaved, not to mention beautiful girls ever! AND, Avrie loved me, and wanted to sit on my lap all the time. I loved them all. They must have one amazing mom...

Uh oh! Poor thing...both of you. You will laugh at this later or when she has kids and calls you crying you can show her this. =]

Brock went through a stage a while back where he spread peanut butter all over himself and his clothes everytime I got in the shower. Luckily he grew out of that!!
