The Hazards of Muffin Tin Mondays

Wait.  What?  What do you mean we're not supposed to be in your Muffin Tin Monday drawer?
 Please note the "child-proofing" lock installed on the drawer.  Mmmmmhmmmmm.

Mess?  I don't see any mess.  Cort, quit looking at your hand!

FYI: it turns out that Betty Crocker Food Writers markers stain the skin.
Expect the staining to be completely removed after about a week.  Soap and water, olive oil, baby wipes, and other methods of cleaning are powerless against Betty Crocker Food Writers.  Only time will fade the marks.
Until then, you will have Little Warriors.

Happy birthday to my sweet twins.  Today they are two!

Weren't they so sweet to share the marker and not get any on their clothes? I also tried to get it off with baby shampoo and diaper rash ointment. Powerful red dye in that food coloring. :-)

and what a perfect way to welcome the terrific twos!! LOVE this : )

the day before ella and zoe turned two i went in their room to get them up for the day and they were both straddled over the top rails, climbing in and out of each other's cribs -- crib climbers!! for another year and a half they slept in crib tents. then right after they turned two they got into a tub of vaseline, not quite warriors but they were greasy for quite a few days ....

oh the fun you're in for : )

happy birthday, happy birthday boys!!

I know you've heard the term "double trouble"! "Two minds are better than one".
What one little guy doesn't figure out, the other will.
Happy Birthday to the adorable twosome!

Oh, I think they are just being artistically expressive. I love how they worked as a team. My kids are into writing on themselves with marker lately. Luckily, it washes off. :)

Grady gets into our drawers all the time, I have a post coming up about it. But we don't have childproofing on the drawers yet...we will soon hopefully.

Now I have a song running through my head from my childhood! One little two little three little Indians, four little five little six little Indians, seven little eight little nine little Indians, ten little Indian boys! lol

Boys just have a way of getting into any and everything! My son took off the door knob from his door when he was 4. He's 7 now and begging for it to be put back on! lol I actually got it out for him today so it can be put back on.

2 year old warriors - that sounds about par for the course.
Don't blink, because the next thing you know they'll be 18.

Trust me. I blinked.
