...of the TERRIBLE THREES!
Just when I think I am getting things under control and that my kids don't do anything too bad, Ethan has to go and do a whole bunch of things in one night.
Last night we were watching a movie and Ethan was supposedly in his room going to sleep. He came up later and said that he wanted to watch another movie. Chris took him back to his room and found out what Ethan had really been doing. Chris' dad had given us a present to give to Logan for his birthday. Well, apparently Ethan had decided to open the present... not just unwrap it, but open the box that the toy was in and take it all apart. He also had opened a cookie mix and spilled it all over the floor. We were upset, but put him too bad and thought that that was all he had done.
Well, this morning when Ethan came into my room, I realized that he had dried paint on his hands. I went downstairs to investigate and found out that he had gotten into my box that had some craft paints in it. He had gotten a little on the blanket that was on the bed in there, but I didn't realize that he had gotten it on other places too. Later I realized that he had started painting some of Logan's present, had gotten a little on the carpet (Ugggh!) and had gotten some on a leather couch. We were pretty frustrated at that point and then Chris opened up his laptop and realized that 6 or 7 of the keys had been removed from the keyboard. Chris was able to find all of them, but the F key... which is still MIA. I think Ethan understood how upset we were and eventually he told Chris that he was sorry. I sure hope he learned his lesson. We are going to put a lock on the extra bedroom so that he won't be tempted to get in there.
Oh the joys of having a three year old! I just hope I can get the paint out of the carpet. I'm thinking not likely.
In other news: Little Logi will be 2 tomorrow! My little baby is growing up. We will now have a 3 year old and a 2 year old! Oh goodie.
Here is the birthday boy himself:
How Sweet! I love it when they actually want their picture taken!
We carved pumpkins with our friends Ben and Andrea. Their son Ian loves Chris!
