I Have to Take Some of the Blame

There was a moment one morning when I thought to myself, "Self, things are REALLY quiet. Should I go and see what they are up to, or should I enjoy the peace and quite?"

I chose wrong.

As I walked out of my bedroom (from finally getting to clean it in peace and quiet), I thought that something smelled awfully nice. When I rounded the corner into the family room, I saw him.


Then I looked over at his room, and saw a thick white fog coming out of it. When I walked in, I found this . . .


Along with her.

Have you ever seen a more guilty face? I think our conversation went something like this -  "AVRIE!!!!!!!!!!!! WHAT DID YOU DO!?!" (can you tell I wasn't using my quiet voice). "WHAT!?! HOW? ------ WWWWWWWHHHHHHHHYYYYYYYY!?!" "WE JUST WENT OVER THIS YESTERDAY. YOU CANNOT OPEN THE BABY POWDER AND DUMP IT EVERYWHERE!!!!!" "WHY DID YOU DO IT??????"

Avrie - "Because it was fun."

This is when I knew I was in trouble. She got in trouble the day before for dumping it on the end table. So . . . she knew it was wrong and chose to "have fun" in spite of it.

They emptied 1 extra large, and 1/2 of a medium sized bottle of baby powder all over his room. She didn't stop at the dresser, or toys, or themselves. She opened his closet and shook the powder all over his clothes. It was up the wall, all over the curtains, and the carpet was covered in a white haze.

He sneezed baby powder for two days.

On the bright side - my house smelled yummy, and it wasn't poop.

But don't you just love it when they are being quiet? Sorry about the mess you had to clean up. We need to do something sometime. It has been way to long.

Well hello! I always love to hear from you. "On the bright side-it wasn't poop". I love the optimism. Good luck with your photos. You are wonderful!

PS- Have you updated to the new blogger?? If not, you must. It is 100x faster and easier. I nearly divorced blogger a couple years ago until they updated.

Love, Love, LOVE it! I remember you telling me the story, but the pictures make it soooo much better! (BTW, Scott makes the exact same face that Avrie had. They should never play together.) Someday you'll be happy you have these memories!
