One of those Days



This weekend I was in the living room and I heard CTP in the kitchen making a lot of paper-rustling noises. I went in to check it out and there he was with an entire roll of wrapping paper unrolled across the floor. I had a choice. Should I get mad? Generally the answer to that question is yes. However, I had already made that choice a few times that day and thought he had maybe had enough misery. So I grabbed the box of markers and we had a mural drawing day. We traced CTP's body and he drew his own face for the first time. He also took the trouble to include his blood and his heart. This was fun. Fun, that is, until I was cleaning the kitchen while RAP slept, and CTP took one of the markers and decorated our living room. Our WHOLE living room. Walls, tv, fireplace, windows, lamps, etc. That time I think I did get mad.

Cute pictures -- I especially like Chase's yellow nose and blue hair.

It's so hard to handle the frustration factor sometimes -- we had a spilled cup of water in bed the other night; It frustrated dad greatly, and it woke up Baby C, but we all ended up in stitches laughing by the end of it.

Great post!
