What do SANDwiches, Elephants and Paper Towels have in common...Brady has had something to do with all three!
On Sunday, we were over a friend's house for a bar-b-q with our Life Group. They have an awesome swing set with a slide and a sand area...and Brady was enjoying playing in the sand a lot! At one point he was laying on his belly in the sand and I was wondering, is he putting his mouth in it? However, I dismissed it, until he came over to me with his hand covered in sand and he was trying to get sand out of his mouth - but was really just putting more in! I had to laugh, I guess he wanted to know what a real SANDwich tasted like! It brought me back to my beach going days (when I lived on Long Island) - you always ended up with some sand in your mouth, however, I don't remember intentionally eating it! He was COVERED in sand, but he had a lot of fun! The bath took most of the sand off of him...there was still some left in his hair, but that has come out since then.
Last night, I put a wide headband in my hair before I went in to kiss Brady goodnight. When I walked in, he said "Mommy, you look like elephant"! I was trying to find the compliment in that, but I was happy that he was pointing at my head/hair and not my body! I had to hold in my chuckle a little bit while I asked him what he meant. He pointed at my hair and said something about me looking like an elephant. So, I guess my hair was sticking out a little bit and it looked like elephant ears??? I really have no idea, but it made me laugh. I was going out to CVS right after that, so I decided to change my headband to the thinner one that I was wearing earlier in the day - I did not want to continue to look like an elephant while I went shopping! :)
Today, I had a friend over and her little son suddenly spit up all over her! Poor little guy - and poor mommy too! So, I went and got some paper towels to clean up my friend's shirt and jeans - he got her good! (Thankfully, he seemed better within the following hour). I brought a roll of paper towel from the kitchen into the family room...and I left it on the couch - what was I thinking!!! My friend, her son, and my little guy went into the living room - Brady was going back and forth in between the living room and family room, and then he was suddenly quiet. Then I heard what sounded like tearing or something like that. I called to him, but then decided to go and see what he was up to. I was greeted by yards of paper towel - all over the family room and in the hallway! I could not believe it! I actually had to laugh - who needs a dog when you have a two year old! It was really harmless and did make me laugh a little bit, but I had to get serious so that I could let Brady know that what he did was wrong and not to do it again...but it was amusing in some way! I just could not believe that he did that! He is such a curious boy - I love the curiosity, but I know that it is something that I will have to direct!
I love both of my boys - they are so precious and I love being Mommy too - even when I have to clean up a whole roll of paper towel! (I just do not want that repeated again - then, it would not be that funny anymore!).
BTW - I had fun with the title of my post, "And Then There Were Three" - hee, hee, hee! I was hoping to "get" a few of you with that! Thanks for enjoying my humor! :)
