Caleb's Nighttime Antics






















So it's 10:32 at night, Paul and I are on our way down the hall to go to bed...previous to this we, and by "we" I mean Paul, put the children to bed. Caleb got up a couple of times for various reasons and was put back to bed. After those couple of times all was quiet down the hall....or so we thought!







We walked down the hall and this is what we found...











This is Caleb's room...mind you it was CLEAN when we put him in bed! He decided to get dressed...for church...which was several hours EARLIER...





















We walked a little further down the hall and found.....Caleb in his nighttime "church" outfit...notice the green marker on the forehead...as if that is necessary attire for church! So now I am wondering...where's the green marker? It was not on his forehead when he went to bed, so he must have applied it to himself during his antics.


Don't forget it's 10:30pm!


So I go searching for the green marker and find...

The plunger in the toilet with some "new clothes" tags...I have NO idea what happened here...

Another thing I found was the contents of my purse all over Abby's floor...I'm assuming this is the origin of the green marker...which I still have not located...along with other things, there were several empty gum wrappers, various pieces of torn receipts, etc...

The last thing I found was lotion...in several places...I didn't get a picture of Abby's flip flops...but they were COVERED in my lotion...covered. Just when I thought I had found everything, I found more lotion...on Abby's rocking chair!

We could not help but laugh. We were trying to discipline Caleb, for disobeying, getting out of bed, making a huge mess of clothes in his room, playing in the toilet, emptying mommy's purse, putting mommy's lotion al over Abby's shoes and rocking chair...and we were just laughing through the whole thing. Of course he took that opportunity to be super cute and cock his head to the side and, with a huge smile, say ... I love you, mommy! Oh man...there went all ability to discipline! We cleaned up what we could, trying all the while to not wake the other two up and told Caleb that the next morning he would be cleaning up the rest as part of his punishment. Oh well...what are you going to do? So I decided to snap a few pics and share them with you. Enjoy!

Is this what I have to look forward to when Micah gets a little older? We're finally moving there...we're supposed to be closing on April 30th. We'll have to get together when I'm finally settled. Our new house is in Las Lomas in Stone Oak.
