Two Minutes = Trouble!

Sometimes I think we've given our son the wrong middle name.  Sometimes I think his middle name should have been Trouble!  Seriously?  The scene you see to the left is what happened last night, in the two minutes it took me to realize I had forgotten to close the bathroom door on my way to make dinner.  It took some effort on my part to remember to take a deep breath and relax.  All I can say is, thank goodness for plungers! 




Of course, once I got over my initial shock at the boy's toilet paper experimentation, the only natural thing to do was to laugh...and grab the camera, of course!  You can tell by the change in his expression that  Mommy lightened up a bit.  Still, I think we've learned a valuable lesson at our house:  Toilet paper stays off the roll for the foreseeable future!  To his credit, at least he's not scared to flush the toilet.  That is one potty training hurdle we will not have to overcome!

We keep all doors closed and I have the safety knobs on them....because he's learned how to open normal doors....I'm with you girl.

God knew what he was doing when he created them this cute, didn't he? They knew they'd need the cuteness in times like these!

too funny melba!! the first look on his face is priceless! :)

a few weeks ago i realized that the house was a little "too" quiet and found milo in his bathroom up on the counter, medicine cabinet open and he was sucking down his toothpaste and had opened the vaseline jar and finger painted all over the mirror! this was all in a matter of a couple of minutes! i SOOOO understand your situation! :) we've resorted to having to lock all the bathrooms and use skeleton keys to open them......

have fun mama! :)
