Shake it off

Thanks for all the kind comments. They were so sweet and supportive that you all made me cry! It's funny, what she said really didn't make me mad as much as it made me terribly sad. Sad because people really think like that. Sad because she isn't the only child that is thought of in that way. And sad because I want her here with me so that I can protect her from all the stupid people in the world. Sigh. I have decided to visit again. I just have to get my hands on those two little ones and spend some time with them. See for myself how they are doing.

Yesterday, Levi did a very, very bad thing. Oh yes, this was a 10 on the naughty scale. He had a banana to eat, and instead, he took it into our bedroom, got on the treadmill, turned it on and proceeded to squish the banana on the tread-belt thingy. The banana went into the base and smushed all the way around the track. How he knew how to work the treadmill I don't know. It has a special magnet that you have to position over a specific place to enable it to turn on. He is not even allowed in the room when I use it for fear he will get his fingers in it and rip them off. Anyone want to bet he grows up to be an engineer of some sort? Nanny was not amused and made him sit in time out while she cleaned it up (which must have taken quite some time)

Of course this ranks right up there with the time Ashley poured shampoo into the dryer. Or the time Ashley broke 18 eggs all over the inside of the refrigerator. Or the time Katie fed Ashley wet grout on a spoon. Or the time.... well, you get the idea. I have earned all of the grey hairs on my head, every one of them! Actually, I have been pretty lucky. These were the only major messes I can remember. Then again, maybe my memory has gone along with the grey hair....

It must have been Levi's Special Powers to show him how that things works...

Poor Nanny... Had to clean that poor Nanna... HEHEHE... Kind of cute!

BUt just wait... he is still young... My Super Hero will be into WAY more Mischief before he turns 20!

Ask mom how many messes she remembers - pay backs, baby!!!

I always wonder what goes thru their little minds. Was it not enough to play with the forbidden treadmill? Why smush the banana? Why not just, say, smush it up in one's hair?

These are the things my children drive me to wonder about!
