2nd Blog of the Day...

I think I've written enough about my beautiful, wonderful, bright and sweet granddaughter, Mia. She's also curious, inquisitive and DESTRUCTIVE!

There is nothing sacred in my house. I have all the cabinets child-proofed and locked. I have baby gates up all over. And I do my best to keep things out of reach.

Well, let me start with the first incident of the day. She somehow got open my Pumpkin Pie stamp pad and used some stamps and created on paper a lovely picture of alligators. A couple of orange fingertips later, she was happy with her picture.

Next, she wrote on my NEWLY painted wall with an ink pen! ARGH!

Then, and don't ask me where she got it from, she painted her legs with Desitin! :sob: It was everywhere!!! And she did this in about 2 minutes while I was on the phone! See below pictures...






There are days that she's the most cooperative child...so easy to please, so easy to entertain. I'm guessing that she's unhappy with me today. Why else would she feel the need to entertain herself this way?

This looks sooo much like something my daughter would do! Hee! I think it doesn't matter where you hide it, they'll find it and paint something with it!

OMG! Those pictures are too much! My son did the same thing (not to that extent) with Desitin on his legs - he thought it was lotion - agh! There was a moment when I was a new mom and completely sleep deprived that I almost used the Desitin (which was near the sink) for toothpaste - luckily I caught myself just in time - I can't even imagine that taste - yuck! Those pics you posted totally made me smile - isn't it amazing how someone so little can cause a whole lot of trouble ?! LOL!

I can SO identify with this! My grandson is almost 2 and into everything! Had to laugh about all the baby gates because I have them too and they still can't contain him. The move fast don't they?

LOL! This is soooooooooooo funny. I feel your pain (beleve me). As a mother of three yourself, you know the saying "They're only little for so long, enjoy them".

Love the new blog. It looks great!
