Mischievous Mason

I have been debating whether to post this knowing I am going to get grief from everyone for leaving my child unattended on the counter. Don't worry this story is not about him falling off (which he has never done). The other day I gave Mason a piece of bread to eat and set him on the counter. This is the only place he will eat his food lately other than on his Daddy's lap. The phone rings and I had to leave the room briefly. I didn't worry too much about leaving him there for a minute because he sits there all the time and is old enough now not to fall off. I should have known he was up to something because he was so quiet for the few minutes I was on the phone. I came back to find this....Mason had carefully taken each piece of bread out of the sack and taken a bite and thrown it on the floor. Then he must have gotten really bored because as I looked closer at him I noticed his head was rather shiny. He had found the butter dish and buttered his entire head with clumps in his hair and all. When I saw this I immediately started laughing. I couldn't be mad because it was my fault for leaving him unattended. His innocent little eyes just looked at me like..."what could I do wrong mommy?" It took a two baths to get all the butter out. He had greased his hair pretty good. It was too funny of a moment not to share. Hope I'm not the only one cleaning up messes like this all day.

That is hilarious! He looks so greasy!

Don't worry, you are not the only one cleaning up messes on a daily basis.

That reminds me of a day where I had spent most of the day vacuuming and straightening things around the house. I had my cousin Stephanie's daughter, Sophie, for the afternoon and thought while the kids were busy playing I could finish the last of my chores...only to my surprise they had been busy in the play room with a BRAND NEW bottle of baby powder! The three of them were dusted to the gills and the bottle empty. I tried to put them in the bath in a hurry not thinking it would clump right up! Ahhh, these are the days!

i cant wait to move back to vegas so dylan and mason can play together. :) i wonder what goes through their little heads when they are doing stuff like biting a hole in multiple pieces of bread, throwing it on the floor, and then butter their heads. haha what a fun moment to remember!
