Brace for it

Don't let this adorable little face fool you.

The pinchable cheeks and baby blues are only a cover.

He owns this shirt for a reason!

Since the weekend, Little Dude has been nothing short of ridiculous. The only explanation I can come up with is his fall down the stairs Saturday afternoon. His forehead met the metal banister. The corner of it to be precise. A nasty purple bruise and a nice sized egg, but he's ok. But I believe that in this fall, he destroyed the part of his brain that tells his body to listen to his mother.

Monday night I finally had enough. The sideways glances from every single patron in Caribou Coffee sent me over the edge. I think they were just as fed up as I was with the


As soon as we returned home it was off to put my escape plan into action. I ran to the bathroom and slammed the door. Ten minutes and a nice hot shower were all I needed. No screaming, no crying, just me and the hot, steamy water to wash all my stress away.

As my need a manicure hands were tangled in my light brown soapy hair, I hear it. The toilet lid came crashing down. I was so involved in my thoughts that I failed to hear the door open and close. I failed to hear bottles rattle as a little person sat down to do their business. But I did hear the lid.

I stopped what I was doing and braced myself. Don't stand directly under the water, hold my breath. Oh dear God! It's coming, it's coming!

Thankfully I was spared a flush.

My sanity however, was not fully spared.

Until next time....

UGH I hate when they flush and I am in the shower. Hoping he comes back around to the lil man you know soon.

I think my boys were born without that little chip that allows them to hear what I am saying!
My 11 year old purposely flushed the toilet on my 7 year old the other night and we heard a big scream! He kept saying "he told me to, he told me too...we were doing an experiment" and laughed until he couldn't breathe. ugh!

Lisa said...

LOL! I remember my kids doing that to me and I also remember when they were teens getting them back on purpose.

Are you sure it isn't something in the air?
My normally sweet and obedient son has become "Sir Whines A Lot" this week.


I feel for you gal.

At least he didn't flush...for once you can be proud of him for NOT doing what you taught him to do...right???
