a "don't cry; laugh" moment and why i want a shop vac

When we moved (end of September), I ended up staying up until 4 am cleaning our old place before we did the final walk-through. So, as you can imagine, I was exhausted the next day. (No, I did NOT get to sleep-in...I slept for 2 hrs and then was up getting Jakob ready for school...)

Anyway...so I was sitting at the computer checking emails/blogs/etc. and realized that Drew was being very quiet...and then realized he was in the kitchen. So I called to him..."Drewbie? What are you doing?" He came around the corner and I noticed he had some mysterious white stuff on his face... I admit, my first reaction was anger, I mean, seriously, that LAST thing I wanted to do was clean anything else...and then when he said HE was "cleaning" I got worried...what if that "white stuff" was some kind of detergent or something??? Then I peeked around the corner and saw a bag of flour on the floor and knew I had to grab my camera!

So...here is a quick documentary of that "funny" moment...how could I ever be mad at that adorable little face? I just love him so much and can't believe he'll be TWO next week!!!!!!!!!! Enjoy... (p.s. i'm hating blogger right now...so my pictures are small and the quality looks crappy but i don't care i am not re-doing this!!!!)













I think this is his version of a snow angel...only with flour...on my kitchen floor!!!!!!

Oh my goodness. Good for you not getting mad. I should have had Jenna come play in your kitchen in her cool outfit (see my blog). Way to be in the moment Shari!

Oh that is too funny. I've had those same feelings, but when I don't get mad I think we both learn a little something. What a cutie.

Oh, Shari... I can't believe you can just take it in stride! You go, girl!

OH my!! Breck did that with a bunch of red lentils I had once! I have a video of him "swimming" in the mess!
Thanks for the smile and perhaps I'll get you that shop vac!
