In the last week she has done the following:
Cut up a bunch of bananas into about 20 pieces
(she did this with a plastic knife, had bananas scattered all over the house. I have no idea how many Reed ate, but needless to say, he was in HEAVEN!)Opened a brand new box of cereal and dumped/scattered it all over the carpet in the basement where they play.
(from the great sale I went to last week. It was too late to put away the groceries when I got home the night before.
When a friend was over, she was the mastermind in taking 2 bottles of kids shampoo and pouring it all over the unfinished basement, and using the mop to spread it everywhere. Now my basement smells like cherry and coconut.
(same sale items that were promptly put away after this incident)
And that brings us to today. While I was on the phone with my parents, and trying to clean my room at the same time, she was watching a movie in the family room (or so I thought). I kept checking on her and she was just chill on the couch.
I went in the room about 5-10 minutes after checking on her and found this:
She got a hold of my kitchen shears (which are brand new, I can't believe she didn't cut herself), and cut up her cute new shirt, pants, and handmade beaded socks Stacia made. When that wasn't enough, she started on my couch cushions.
What was I doing you ask, while this mayhem was going on? Let's see, changing Reed's nasty diaper, taking a shower, and helping a friend upstairs.
I was able to get them patched, sewn and now they are turned backwards/upside down. Let's just hope something doesn't happen to the other side. She's wearing her lovely altered outfit all day today. If you'd like to come and see her new fashion design, come on by. You might even find her on the porch with a "FREE" sign around her neck.
