Real happens at my house in some form every day

You know that old saying? The one that goes something like, "You can't leave them alone for one minute?"

I usually practice that. Really, I do.

But, today at breakfast, my bladder was screaming.

I made the later-determined-wrong-decision to answer it.

To the bathroom I went.

A moment of peace, and then....

....Colin came tapping on the door.

"Mom....I think you need to come quick."

Not. Good.

I followed him back down the hall as quickly as I could.

I guess I left the box a little to close to Ethan....

"Mom, I swear. I didn't know that if I turned the bag upside down and shook it and shook it and shook it and shook it like that, that the whole entire box of cereal would just DUMP out all over the place. I swear."

"Yeah, Mom.....I'm pretty sure I can tell, because of the way you're looking at me, that I was NOT supposed to do that."

Welcome to my world...I don't even have to have the cereal box OUT, If I forget to lock the cabinet, they're in it. It's like they have a sixth sense about that stuff!

He's still adorable anyway!

That stuff happens here quite a bit, but we do have Jack the dog, so I very rarely have to clean up those kinds of messes. About the only thing Jack won't eat is corn, green beans, and grapes...other than that it is fair game to him. No wonder my dog is on a diet :)

Ok I know that is totally frustrating (I really know) but he is absolutely adorable!!!

Ugh! That hurts my heart!

Hope you're having a great Friday!

(I LOVE the tile on the floor!)

What program do you use to get your pictures to look like that? I like it.
Nice tile too by the way.
