Just a day in the life…

Two things…

One- found this on the floor this morning.

Found out from Lily that she put it there so Jake would slip on it. Where that came from, I don’t know. They both found it hysterical to say the least. We all got a good laugh out of that one.

Two- Jake pulled the drawers out of Lily’s dresser in order to climb up it. Unfortunately today was laundry day and the dresser was pretty much empty. It just couldn’t hold the weight of a 3 1/2 year old boy and tipped.

Good News: He jumped off so it rocked back to the wall instead of landing on his noggin.

Bad news: All of Lily’s breakable treasures were on top of it and we had a few casualties. The saddest of all being this.

The angel that Lily got from her godparents for her baptism. Needless to say after making sure that there was no permanent damage to the children I was VERY upset with them for messing with the furniture. I have successfully glued her back together and am only missing one little piece now. I am planning to thoroughly sweep in the morning (read: pull out all the furniture and send the kids under the bed) so that we can bring her back to her original glory.  The other breakages were things that I do not necessarily consider treasures, although my daughter does.

Note: Joe is currently trying to figure out how to anchor the dresser somehow so that this doesn’t happen again for all of you wondering why we are such careless parents. Truly, I had no idea that he was heavy enough to topple it over. It is a wood dresser for crying out loud!

Off to bed!
