I think I need to keep notes so that by the end of the day when Gabe is in bed and it's quiet (FINALLY) I remember all the interesting things I wanted to talk about.

Gabe has been a sass lately. He definitely gets that if he says please he gets things. So if it's something I say no to he says it again and again and more and more pathetic. He signs it too so the signing gets BIGGER. "Pwease Momma" "Pwease" and the lip sticks out and he gets the puppy dog eyes. It's hard to say no to that.

If you stick to your guns and say no then the balls up his fits and says NO to you and gets angry. Geez that kid has a temper, and he's stubborn too (wonder where he gets that stubborn streak from? :P)

We had a really good weekend though and it was nice outside so we spent lots of it running around getting dirty and scraping knees which need to be kissed several times a day even days after the event, he's such a ham.

Tonight for example, he goes to bed fine, then Mike and I hear him out of bed. Mike goes up and suddenly I hear Mike yell at Gabe. There is lotion ALL over the bathroom (Sugar shortbread a Bath and Body Works discontinued one). So the bathroom smells nice, and the cats got extra water (mostly on the floor). How one 2 year old can do so much damage in 3 minutes amazes the heck out of me.

While he drives me nuts sometimes I love that kid.


  1. Couple of words for you:
    Pre-wash spray.
    2:00 a.m.
    Closed closet door.

  2. LMAO Oh geez! I think I remember hearing that story. Isn't it how Powder became white with only a little orange?

  3. That's what we tell the kids.
