If you ever wondered what I do All. Day. Long.......

Here's a little sampling.








I got more bang for my buck with JM than I ever bargained for. You know, we really didn't pay more than $25 to have both Maddison and Sarah thanks to awesome Amsco health insurance, Tess and Aaron were freebies thanks to the military and well, JM.....yeah....he cost us around $4,500. I guess Heavenly Father wanted us to feel like we got the most for our money with this kid, cause he keeps me hopping.

There isn't a minute of the day that he's not getting into SOMETHING. (As I'm sitting here typing this and he's by my feet trying to pull DVD's out of their cases). I've finally consented to the fact that my house is going to be a clutter zone thanks to Mr. Tornado and 4 other kids that can't seem to pick up after themselves. I mean, I COULD have a perfectly picked up house, but then again, that is ALL I would do all day long.....is become JM's shadow, piecing back together the destruction zone.




I really loved President Monson's talk on the Sunday morning session of General Conference. In fact, I've already listened to it again, because I need that reminder to embrace each day and enjoy it for what is given me and not look back on these "interesting" times with regret.

So, my little whirlwind of a child......thank you? I think? For what you are giving me right now in my life.

Hey, if nothing else, I get my exercise, chasing him off of the kitchen table, or the dresser or off of TRACEY's night stand (notice it's not MY night stand overflowing with junk....HA HA), or off of the computer desk

or off of my scrapbook desk, or off of my Cricut stand, or out of the bathroom or out of the toilet or out of Tracey's filing cabinet or.....or......or.........

Oops! Gotta run...quite honestly someone left a chair at the table and he's up on top of it now! The kid doesn't think to climb back off the table onto the chair. One of these days he's gonna break his arm falling off onto the tile.

Oh now, that is too funny. I have two of those right now. At 5 1/2 you would have thought that Cameron would have grown out of it but he eggs the littlest one on, so it's double trouble in our house. Here was I thinking you had your feet up all day eating bon bons and watching the tv!! ;-)

ROFLOL

I love this kid. How can you get upset with anyone with so much life. There is nothing better than a child with an investigative spirit, and a zest for life. Hang in there.

I love the action photos...what a wild man! It's the wild boys in this world that all those baby companies make all their money on cabinet locks.

Oh that little guy makes me laugh!
He has such a cute smile it is hard to get mad at him even when getting into trouble. He a fun kid!

Jennifer said...

I loved Pres Monson's talk too. Makes those crazy boy days bearable. Those little guys must have attended a "how to destroy a house in minutes" class together before coming to earth ;) love the pictures too!

Looks like you have your hands full!! Hope to see you in Utah!!

Beth said...

I agree with g.ma, he's too cute to get mad at! He reminds me of myself as a kid. I hope you have good insurance now!

Hey, my dear child, your little family is an eclectic group of spirits. They are all adored in this house. Just remember about JM that the apple doesn't fall far from the tree. Just remember that I've seen your room when you were living at home. Some things never change from generation to generation. You must have taken after your mom.

Love,
Dad

or crack his skull! girl, what a little daredevil you have there! Of course only having one right now...I freaked any and every time I see my little one doing the very same stuff. I'm learning though...heck in the next couple of months or so...I'll probably be saying, go ahead kid...take your best shot! Well, not really!
JM looks so innocent in it all too...esp the bathroom pic.

Mer said...

LOL! How can you get mad when he's so stinking cute?
