It coulda' been worse -Smiley Saturday

Smiley Saturday is brought to us by Lightening

I always have a lot of reasons to smile ... beats whinging and complaining (though I do my fair share too).

Thursday night we read a few bed time stories and then I nursed the Brothers individually ... but neither went to sleep. So Daddy (DH) put them into their cots anyway.Though we co sleep they go to sleep in the cots first most nights. Except Daddy put J in S's cot with Big Ted (There's a bear in there)

We heard a lot of noise and giggling ... then DH yells out to me - "hey come look at this ...quick"

S was nekkid , cot was sans pillow (now wet ?), blanket and doggy and teddy . Pj's on the floor and nappy. He had also pulled clothes out of the drawer and was happily jumping and smiling ...

J was seated on top of change table - we think he had first used big teddy for a foot hold -not that he needed it. He had pulled out all the things from shelf beneath, ripped things open and thrown the clock (off the wall near change table) to the floor, along with pillow,blanket, small teddy & book from cot. It looked like a bomb scene.

*gasp* It was a blogger mummy's nightmare - I couldn't find the camera ...

I yelled at everyone to find found the camera and I re - clothed S, put them in their own cots -sans Big Ted and waited for the show to begin ... first they cried as I made them lie down.Then I stood watching ...

they are quick learners ! Now S knew how easy it was to escape ...

1..
2...
3...secs
OUT
gets back IN -
S begins again (Left) ............................................. J is on the up

almost over

diving in head first

get out of my way - Up

Out - after pushing S out of the way because they both couldn't climb out at same time
So tell me do they make straight jackets in size 2 ?? ...
It coulda' been worse ...

Did you notice the broken blind slats ...and the fact the cots are a good distance away from wall/curtains ?

Doing the Revive our hearts challenge because it is making my DH smile ...*till this afternoon


Revive our hearts :
Day Five:
"Let no corrupt communication proceed out of your mouth, but what is good for
necessary edification, that it may impart grace to the hearers." Eph. 4:29
Do you praise your husband to his relatives, and yours? Does your husband's mother
know how much you love him?
Yes I am sure she does ...
Today's suggestion is to let them know by letter ...which funnily I thought about yesterday. I will for Mother's Day ... remind me if I forget.



What made you smile this week ...

I love the look on their faces!! Seriously though, I feel your pain - we're not long off that ourselves. Good luck!

Alison said...

That has to be the ultimate toddler obstacle course!
My girls are in big beds now - They are the ultimate cubby houses..

Widdle Shamrock said...

I'm surprised you didn't go into heart failure !!!!

lol. Little monkeys. They look very proud of themselves though don't they. Just gorgeous. Good luck on containing them now.

Am looking forward to your Screw up Tuesday too. That's been a bit of fun.

Now I'm interested to know the boys sleep schedule...
What time are they usually in bed? Do they nap? What time do they wake up? :P I bet if Deeder shared a room with an age-mate he'd be up to the same antics! Pretty funny...um, to read about anyway! :)

Jayne said...

LMAO

That is a classic you'll have to show on their 21st birthday :)

Guera- thanks - almost time for the big beds to come out of storage.

Alison -cubby houses sound like fun.Our big beds are racing cars we got 2nd hand from my SIL's friend - A lady who coincidently I was in same year at school so we got a good buy -

WS - I did for a few secs -then couldn't stop laughing -
Screw up Tuesday ... oh - they are both good ;) - see you Tuesday ...

Laura - they have one nap about 2 hrs, go down around 12-1pm if I am lucky -but mostly I nurse them to sleep .
If I put them in awake - they PLAY & wreck as you can imagine LOL and takes 1 hr before they nod off.
At night they don't go to bed till

Jayne - thanks I agree but I missed some beauties too *sigh who moved my camera LOL

Saying sorry is always good for the soul!

Megan from Imaginif said...

That is a super duper cross country course ... kinder gym at home.

baby~amore' said...

Planning queen -TY yes sorry is good and I was ...

Megan - I missed the best ones but I knew if I was patient they would do it all again. These guys once they learn a new trick like show it off.

thanks for visiting me.

Katrina said...

What a laugh, I remember that sort of thing quite well (followed by going straight to a big kid mattress on the floor to stop the splat effect in the middle of the night) I look forward to reading the rest of it

Childlife said...

Oh. My. Goodness!!! They are clever little stinkers, aren't they? That is just too funny - LOL! I'm not sure straight jackets would even slow that dynamic duo down, Trish :D
