Life Lately...

I started this blog because I wanted to document the great stories in the boys lives.
I have always scrapbooked and did the baby books, but this is different. You get to actually document the whole story. Like your own book written by you!
So without further ado...
As I was sitting on the computer I heard some splish splashing in the bathroom.
Looked over, the door was shut.
Of course I knew Dylan was into something, little did I know I would walk in and see his WHOLE HEAD in the toilet!!
Like, the whole thing. Ears included.
I yelled (not in mad voice but more like "what in the heck are you doing" voice.)
Which is exactly what I screamed: "Dylan, what in the heck are you doing?!"
He looked up at me with the most ornery smile ever on his face as the toilet bowl water was literally dripping down his face.
My first thought was that the bleach cleaner in the toilet was going to burn his eyes or skin so I grabbed a towel and wiped him down.
My next thought was that his hair was going to turn white from the bleach cleaner.
Neither happened.
My goodness. This child. What am I going to do with him? Where does he come up with these ideas?
Oh I know. Maybe his Meme.
The same day he spent all day with Meme. They toilet papered our house.
She said he thought it was soooo funny and laughed and giggled the whole time.
Really. I need a reality show to document these times I do not have my camera out.
(Please ignore my nasty weeds. Clearly I need to work on my landscaping.)
While Dylan is still ornery as ever my all star child, Drew, got his first Blue Ribbon at school!!
He is always bringing home purple stars for good behavior, but the Blue Ribbon is being noticed in front of the whole Kindergarten. He has been wanting this Blue Ribbon for so long. So he was soooo beyond excited to tell me he finally got it.
He makes me so proud!
We had his parent teacher conference last night and you could tell the teacher just loves him. She kept saying how sweet he is and how much he really pays attention to her and follows directions.
Hearing all of this makes me feel like I am doing my job right.
He is such a sweetheart.
While looking through his journal last night every single page had something about Dylan on it.
How stinking sweet is that? I know it melts my heart.
He loves his brother!
That is something the teacher did mention last week when I went on his field trip.
She said he talks about his brother all the time.
He also drew a picture of his family. He added one little kid to the picture!
Uh oh! :)
