Day 81- Twisted

Yesterday was a pretty lazy day chore wise. I got the dishes done which was good since I was starting some interesting science experiments with some old milky sippy cups. Unfortunately Boo decided to do some more diaper removal during naptime. On a good note her blankie is the cleanest that it has ever been since I'm washing it 3 times a day lately...

One of my readers Tiffany commented on my post the other day and suggested that I put her in backwards zippered jammies with the feet cut off. I didn't really want to ruin a pair of her jammies so I tried just twisting the feet around and then putting them on backwards. It worked like a charm and she even sat through the photo shoot of her Kriss-Kross impression. Anything to postpone bedtime, right?


Unfortunately this morning I opened her door and she was buck naked. Yep, my little Houdini got out of backward zippy jammies. In the dark. There on her floor were her jammies layed out perfectly flat, still zipped AND snapped. She shimmied her boyish figure out the neck hole of those pajamas. That's like Babies Have Talent worthy. She could be a STAR!!


The kids were actually all pretty worn out from a birthday party that we went to last night. I got to hold a tiny newborn and rock her to sleep while my wild monkeys ran around crazy trashing my poor friend's house. I've been down with the baby fever for a few weeks now, but holding a sleeping newborn really kicks it into full swing. If only the old baby makin' factory wasn't closed... maybe Angelina wants to share with me.

I spent all day yesterday making a fabric travel art thingy for the birthday boy but I forgot to take a picture of it before we left. It turned out really cute if I do say so myself... my kids loved it so I guess I'll be making a few more to keep in my purse for the next time they all decide to meltdown at the same time while I'm waiting in line with $300 of groceries in my car shaped cart. Maybe I'll even do a tutorial and pretend that I'm crafty!

I'll get right on that as soon as I figure out what to do for Father's Day... nothing like waiting until the last minute!

3 Thoughts From Others:

I was actually going to suggest the same thing Gillian, do you have any for her that are a bit on the small side?? If they were snug as a bug on a rug on her she might not be able to get out the neck hole. I had to do this with Lynner at her age because she would pee the bed every day. So annoying!

LOL Well that little turkey! She is the "crafty" one. ;) Hope you figure something out bec all that laundry is big ugh!

I cannot believe she got out of that one!! But boy was that idea genius! She is just so dang cute, how can you resist her??

We're about to start potty training here too. Saylor is not *quite* ready yet, I don't think. She's interested in the potty, and today she went up to the potty at church & told me "I un potty" and started backing up to it. But any time I've actually sat her on the toilet, she freaks. I bought her a Dora seat thingy, so we'll see how that goes.

Cheers for laminate flooring!!
