Toddler Hijinks

Yesterday morning, Nathan stuck his Self-Propelled James the Red Engine into my hair, and his whirring little wheels immediately caught a large chunk of it. I was not even awake yet, so this was most unwelcome. I ended up having to pull out a small chunk of hair.

As I was pulling out that hair, he managed to grab the baby shampoo from the side of the tub and dump it on the hardwood floors in the hallway, then slipped and fell in it.

This morning I went to make myself a cup of coffee and came back in to find he was banging the crank arm of a bicycle against our flat screen TV. While completely naked.

He's also had a hilaaarious habit lately of tossing any toilet paper left in the vicinity of the toilet (I mean, why would it be there?)INTO said toilet. I've become adept at measuring how much toilet paper can be flushed in one flush in each bathroom and how to keep the rest stuck to the side of the bowl with a stick until the toilet refills. Kids HATE THE ENVIRONMENT apparently.


So destructive. YET SO ADORABLE.


  1. Is this where I say that toilets with a lot of TP in them - I mean A LOT - give me the gross out even if there is no urine or feces present? It's like you end up with something along the lines of toilet paper pudding. White paper pudding.

  2. You give me so much to look forward to with my first little one still developing my wife's belly.

  3. Bah ha ha ha ha! It's a good thing they're so cute, huh? :) Just wait til next year, when he can show Evan all these tricks.

  4. Good thing there were no chainrings on that crank arm. they make for REALLY good weapons.

    I like his most recent tp trick of simply dropping the entire roll into the bowl, without unraveling. No pudding there!
