For Your Weekend Enjoyment

There are some phrases one learns never to use, or even think. The biggest one being, "It can't possibly get any worse."

Sometimes when that thought does manage to escape the locked, chained, buried, guarded by little red lasers, mental file cabinet titled "Thoughts Not to Think", and it happens to run through my mind, I give myself a good mental shake and say out loud, "I take it back, I take it back! I didn't mean it... I swear!!"

You know, just to be safe.

I hate when I'm proven wrong.

So when I posted this picture a couple weeks ago, I actually had the stupidity in that moment to think, "well, I don't suppose the book mess could get any worse than this."

I know right? Seriously, you'd think I'd know better by now. I need someone around to give me a good *whack* to the back of the head from time to time.

Where's Mark Harmon when you need him?

So, it serves me right I suppose when I came upon this.

Those two and their books. They simply have no idea how lucky they are to be so stinkin' cute.

No. Idea.

I've also learned something else. Something rather useful.

I will NOT be letting Alayna feed Claira anytime soon.

For obvious reasons.

Can I just... blame this one on her dad? You know, say that she's her daddy's child and all?

*sigh* Okay fine. She probably gets it from my side of the family.

You see... I have this one sister, who was always putting things up her nose....

You know what?  Let's just not go there.

And I have one more gift for you. Just a little something my darling, sweet, thoughtful, adorable, kind, obedient children whipped up on your behalf.

Just to make you feel a little better about your day. Aren't they just so considerate?

You're welcome.

And now if you'll excuse me, I need to go report a premeditated, double duct taping.

And to think, I was actually going to post a recipe today. HA!

Mmm...Mark Harmon....

But they're READING! That's worth so much!!! Then again, I'm prejudiced toward that.

Mama Smith said...

I love the two of them in BED...reading...Makes you wish YOU were in bed with a good book! (smile)

wonderful post!! Just this week, I boxed up a ton of my kids' books for exactly this reason. I couldn't even walk through their rooms some days because the pile of books strewn across the floor was so thick!
I have some extra duct tape if you need it.

Hahaha! Thanks for sharing! We have cereal messes at least every other day! My 1-year-old is a dumper of all things. Though I guess I should be grateful he doesn't try to put anything up his nose...yet. :)

How you manage not to spank and scream at them is beyond me....

Charlotte said...

I try to tell myself that book messes mean they love books as much as I do. Otherwise I would lose my mind.

I think I would ban cereal if I lived in your house. For similar reasons we've banned gogurts and gum.
