Yesterday seemed like an ordinary afternoon. The kids were down for naps, and I was attempting to be productive. All in all, it was indeed a productive day, and I was able to cross several tasks off of my to-do list. Three o’clock rolled around and it was time to get Kaylor from school. The two little ones were still soundly sleeping, so I went upstairs to wake them. Upon entering Ashlyn’s room, I found her not only not sleeping, but this;
While she was supposed to be napping, she had snuck into Kaylor’s room, and found her craft box. It contained foam stick-ons, stamps, and my least favorite item… INK! Turquoise ink to be exact. Boy, did Ashlyn have fun stamping away. Thank goodness, the majority of it was on herself, and not anywhere else. There was a tiny bit on the (brand new) carpet, but thankfully I was able to get it all out. She kept telling me, “Mommy, daddy is gunna be so proud of you for cleaning the carpet!”… Um, yeah, doubt it! lol Every time I asked her why she would do such a thing she would say, “Sissy just had it for FOUR days”…. I have no idea what the significance of four days was to her stamping everywhere… oye.. This child is our true test of patience! 🙂
As she now repeats to me sometimes, because she hears it quite often, “You’re lucky you’re cute!”….
