Mugshot of the Mischievous :)


I texted this picture to my husband yesterday.  I go to put a load of clothes in the washing machine, and I come back to find my child all in the suncreen lotion.

Rubbin' it in.

I wish I could say this was an isolated incident, but we're going through a solid phase of mischief.  When I say solid, I mean all the time.  This same thing happened a few weeks ago with Vicks Vapor Rub.  And this past weekend, I found my deodorant and little squirts of lotion in the potty.

I wish I could say that she didn't know that this was wrong, but that wouldn't be true.  I'll walk in the room and she'll have these big, bright eyes that say, "I know I'm not supposed to be doing this, but it's so fun."  And then when I don't catch her, she comes to me after committing the crime with a look on her face that says, "Mommy, I sure hope you don't discover what I just did."  (Oh, yes, I can count on her for that.  She always tells on herself with those guilty eyes.) 

Fortunately this phase isn't a hard one for me.  In fact, I struggle not to laugh most times.  But I've got to find a way to get her to think her actions through before she does these things.  Her actions yesterday cost her an afternoon treat -- a cupcake.  And yes, for her it was the end of the world. Mission accomplished.  It's an experience watching her learn from her mistakes.

I just hope it sticks.  Because I can't imagine next time it being my phone or iPad in the potty. 

*shuddering at the thought*

Despite our little incidents, we're having a great week.  Hope you are, too!
