Mission: Drive Mommy Crazy.

Granted. I have not given the munchkins tons of attention today. I have been distracted. And tired. I took a really long nap.

This is what the children did while I was sleeping.

They filled up water bottles, turned them upside-down, and ran back and forth across the carpet creating water streaks across the floor. They repeated this many times.

They coated the kitchen table with milk. Which dripped onto the carpeted dining floor.

They dumped nuts on the stairs.

They drank cups of sugar. And then dumped the sugar onto the table to mix it with the standing milk.

And then I woke up.

And there was much weeping and perhaps yelling.

And they went to their room.


  1. Again, so in awe that you are able to laugh about it so soon. I would still be smoking angry. How do you do it?

  2. I echo the W-O-W. But probably for a different reason. You STILL havent learned that they cant be left unattended? W-O-W

  3. hehe. This is why moms are NOT allowed to take naps, Elise. It's sooooo not worth it. :)

  4. Reminds me of a day my mom recorded all the mischief just the twins got into in a 24 hour period. My goodness.

  5. I think you're pregnant: naps at inappropriate times, emotional... Yup. Pregnant.

  6. I remember coming home from school finding my mother crying after she had similar experiences with my two younger brothers. I would contemplate in my young mind what it would be like to just have one sister again, because, obviously, my Dad was going to kill them when he got home from work.
