These are the five basic rules that all must adhere to in our house.
Rule #1 - Keep all bathroom doors shut!
Why this is so hard to remember? I do not know, but people in this house really need to be better at it because...I find him playing in the toilet, turning on the tub, or sucking on the toothpaste more times than I will ever admit.
Rule #2 - Push all the chairs in around the table!
...or else C will climb up on it and either stand on it or dump whatever he finds, like the sugar or cups of water.
Rule #3 - He can never be alone in the upstairs family room!
He will find markers and eat them. He will find scissors and play with them. He will push buttons on my sewing machine and computer. He will play with my camera and take a million pictures like this...
Rule #4 - Keep the patio door locked!
He loves to be outside. He has figured out how to open the slider and with the new deck he wants to escape.
No worries, there was actually a parent out there this time.
Rule #5- Close the pantry door all the way!
This is the most important rule, but the one that gets broken most often. C loves the pantry. C loves food...
It's impossible to count how many pieces of cereal or crackers I have picked up because of this boy. The messes that I have to clean up take so much time out of my day it makes me crazy just thinking about it!
He sure is one messy little boy, but I love him...oh, do I love him!
Here's a funny little video of my messy little guy.
