Oh Crap! moment #68-74

I haven't done one of these in a really long time. I think it's because I've become desensitized to all the bumps, cuts, bruises and shenanigans that these boy get into on a daily basis. How people survive childhood eludes me...

Oh Crap! moment #68

As I walked into the living room one day it felt like a bug went into my eye only it stung so bad that I immediately ran to the bathroom to rinse my eyeball out. I never found the bug and without too much thought I went about my morning. That is until I walked into the boys room to find that they had dusted half the room with cayenne pepper (and they tried to clean it up, notice the baby wipes). That morning was spent washing their hands and vacuuming. And in case you haven't put two and two together the thing that landed in my eye was a floating speck of cayenne. How the boys didn't get any in their eyes I have no idea?!

Oh Crap! moment #69

Yup you guessed it, talcum powder all over the floor, their legs, and hands. More vacuuming...

looking quite satisfied with themselves
Oh Crap! moment #70

There have been so many split lips that I've lost track, I don't even remember how Eli fell when he got this one. It does look like a particularly bad one though. Maybe it was the time someone dove head first off the bathroom counter...
That's one fat lip!
It's cut on both the outside and inside
Tah Dah!

Oh Crap! moment #71

We never heard the crash but this little uh oh cost us $170 to repair!

The point of impact was toddler fist level
This was near the scene, it stands about 10 inches in length and it was one
of Caleb's favorite toys at the time. You can say I have a suspect in mind...
Oh Crap! moment #72

The boys have this game they call "hay lobos" (there's wolves) and it involves getting completely naked, jumping on our bed, and scaring each other in the closet. They had been playing their game one morning when they came out to the living room. I was picking up some toys off the floor so I wasn't paying too much attention to them. At one point I turn around and all three were perched on the window, like in the picture below except they were completely naked! And as you can see they are in plain view of anyone driving down the street or walking down the sidewalk. Thankfully they were only up there a few seconds before I caught them! Can you imagine if someone had seen them... at least I don't think anyone saw them?!

I had them pose for this picture but I normally don't let them do this with or without clothes!
Oh Crap! moment #73

Around the same time that moment #72 happened, maybe it was even the same day, I picked up the boys from nursery school one day only to find them all running around in their classroom completely naked! After talking to the teacher she told me that for the last half hour the boys had refused to put clothes on after stripping them selves down. I wasn't gonna wait till the third strike so we now have a strict "underwear at least" rule AT ALL TIMES!

Oh Crap! moment #74

What's worse than your kid throwing up in a crowded paved playground? Your kid peeing in a crowded paved playground! Talk about wanting to crawl under a rock with embarrassment, thanks Thomas! What can I say, at least pee is sterile...

Too bad Handy Manny couldn't have fixed the window! Things are never boring at your house, are they? Hee!
