Butter for breakfast? Why not.

Dear El Guille,
If you don't knock it off, I'm going to invest in one of these:


Love,

I dream about investing in those things somedays. *sigh* I just keep cleaning and telling myself they will get more chores to focus on with each passing year until I have a maid service.

Ah come on, the leash with the spongy phone cord isn't so bad, is it? Because I was sooo just planning on sending you one in the mail today. It's red. It would match your hot peep-toe, red Steve Madden pumps!

I bought one of these lovely contraptions when we went to Disneyland. My youngest was 2 at the time. At one point I put him in a stroller and strapped it onto his 5- year-old brother.

It worked.

Though sadly, I haven't used it since. It could have saved me from some serious wholesale destruction.

I have one, if you want it.

Don't judge me, but I have one.

April said...

Wow. That kid can make a mess faster than [insert B-list celebrity name here] can [insert pop culture reference here].

Lisa - and THAT'S why I love you.

T- He wanted to help me clean it up yesterday. I said NO and he was sad. Hey, if cleaning it is going to make him happy, then NO is the answer.

RC - does it come in leopard print?

Rynell - It doesn't stop by FIVE? I don't know what we're going to do.

April - You make me giggle.

Vanilla Ice can collaborate and listen?

My mom has two of those. She used them on my identical twin brothers. They were the last of 8 kids.
They DESERVED the leash.

We had that same oatmeal cannister spill a few days ago. My father-in-law thought we could still use each oat that was on top of another oat and therefore not making direct floor contact. I disagreed.

I had a leash. He ripped himself out of in in 2 seconds flat. Don't waste your money. What you need is an iron maiden. Or at least a non-lethal equivalent.

April said...

Zuc, YES. That's it, exactly!

more caffeine, please said...

Who doesn't want a cube of butter with hair on it for breakfast? Mmmm.

Holly said...

Why don't you get a leash to use inside your home? Then he won't be getting into stuff like this and people can't judge you!

Don't kid yourself, I have one of those. If you haven't heard, or witnessed it yourself, my son's favorite thing is to run away (at home and in public). I threatened the leash, that didn't stop him, so I got one. I don't use it as much as I should, and I can't believe I actually have one (actually, I didn't buy it, my brother-in-law did because he felt so sorry for me)because they were such a pet peeve of mine. And then I had children of course, and all prior opinions flew out the door.

teeth marks in butter? he ate chunks of a stick of butter? puke! that's almost as bad as watching someone who shall not be named drink a glass of 2% milk. double puke.

liz said...

love the teeth marks in the butter.

love the photos - makes it so much more fun for the rest of us to see what's lurking around the corner for tiddler life in my house. and my whole box of nursing pads scattered down the stairs like "snowballs", not such a big deal. ;-)

Too funny!

Don't worry if my mom had a harness type thing for my little sis. It hooked hand to hand though and she got it for our Disneyland trip. Does that make it any better?

She also would pull it out if my brother and I were not getting along (which was most of my childhood). She would hook us up and say that we had to go EVERYWHERE together so we could learn to live with one another. If he had to go to the bathroom, I had to wait outside the door attached to a coiled telephone cord-type leash. If I wanted to play at a friend's house, he had to come with me and vice versa. Hilarious now that I think about it.

I was 16. Just kidding, but wouldn't taht be great?
