Crash!


I was chatting on the phone this morning happily ignoring my duties as mother. Stinky was running around naked from the waist down and dragging toys all over the house. I half-heartedly told him to be careful as he was dragging his sister's wooden chair around the family room and was climbing on it to reach things off of the entertainment center. Next thing you know...CRASH! I turn around and the beautiful Lenox daffodil that my grandma gave me a few years before she passed away lay in a zillion pieces on my tile floor. My eyes welled up with tears. Stinky stood very still staring as well.
He hopped down from the chair and tried desperately to toddle over to me. "Uh oh, Uh oh." When he finally got over to me, he patted me on the leg ever so gently and looked at me with his big blue eyes and said, "I'm 2."

How can you stay mad at that?

It's kind of like when you're mad at your daughter and then she puts her hand on you and says "You look so pretty today, Mommy". I hate that.

So sweet!!! That one just gave me a big ole smile on my face!
(Kinda like last week when we were out trick-or-treating and my dh said something like, "Stop doing that or you're gonna get in trouble to 2-y-Scout and she said in the sweetest voice, "But Poppy, I love you . . ." You just can't get mad at that!)

That works at two but not at twenty two. Enjoy while he is small and cute.

I'm so sorry about your daffodil, but that Stinky sure knows how to work his cute factor. Look out ladies!

Oh my goodness you could not stay mad at that! LOL!

Binker can go up and down the stairs on his own. So sometimes I do not watch. And that is when he falls. Go figure!

My teenaged son will do something to tick me off. Then he'll walk in, start giving my tired sore shoulders a rub, and I just gotta ask him, "What did you do and how much is it gonna cost?"

Dr. John says hi!

A wonderful story, you couldn't stay mad at a child, especially at that age. Just stopping to say Hi, Dr John sent me to visit.
