Oh Sam

This morning the boys slept in til almost 8:00. Lately they have been getting up at 6:30 or 7:00 so when they were still sleeping close to 8 I was a little surprised. Well, Sam apparently wasn't sleeping. He was busy in his crib making a mess and hasn't stopped since.

I went in to get Sam to find a naked bum and a poopy diaper and sheets. oh yay! Sam ended up in the bath tub while I attacked the poopy laundry. I went back into the bathroom to find that Sam had discovered the nasty toilet brush and was swishing it in the toilet water. Fun! So I had to drain the tub and lather him down for a good wash down from his bath.

Shortly after that, while I was getting breakfast done and cleaned up, Sam comes up to me with liquid all down his front and on his hands (he's still only in a diaper). Turns out the liquid is not water and has a cleaning smell. He had discovered the Shout bottle I used to spray down his sheets and blanket before throwing them in the wash. Oh goodness!

This is all in a matter of an hour! Currently he is emptying the dishwasher and playing with the dishes. Luckily I have already pulled out the knives.

I have a feeling it's going to be a mess of a day!

Update 11:00am:

I thought the kids were well and safely distracted so I jumpped in the shower. When I got out I was greated by this scene.In case my new garage sale rug hides to mess too much let me describe the scene for you. Sam climbed up on the brown chair and reached onto the ledge where I keep a tall glass jar full of spaghetti noodles. Before I got in the shower I found him with another jar full of cornmeal, luckily I caught that one before he spilled it. With the spaghetti I wasn't as lucky. Just imagine hundreds of noodles broken into various sizes all over the chair and floor.

Anyone want a 19 month old for a few days/years?

I'll trade you my whiny two year old for your messy 19 month old!
