Stay out of my room!

Gavin, my 2 year old, is always getting into trouble. He's just your normal nosy boy who gets into everything. Last night he came out of his room wearing only a diaper and covered in stickers. He said he was a superhero with tattoos.

The other day I was busy with the twins in the living room and assumed Gavin was in his room playing. Well, he wasn't. He got into our bedside table and got into some "personal lubricant." He had it everywhere: hands, face, table. When I saw him he said, "I need lotion mama."
The very same day, he comes walking into the living room with white stuff on the top of his foot. He proudly shows me saying, "Look mama, I need medicine for my boo boo."
I calmly take him by the hand, and lead him into my bathroom (their bathroom is totally kid proof). I asked him which medicine he used. I pointed to my Some He opened a drawer and got out a tube of Preparation H. LOL! (I considered not putting this in here because it screams to the world "I have hemorrhoids" but reality is, when I was pregnant with the twins...lots of much information?) When I wiped it off his foot he cried hysterically, he was so proud that he doctored his own boo boo. I need a lock on my bedroom door.

Mothering is a lot of work but oh so worth it! I have to remind myself how lucky we are to be raising our own kids. I think if Bambi's mom had of lived longer--even SHE would have had days like that! It's still sad everytime I think about Bambi's mom getting shot.

Anyway, thanks for dropping by my blog. :)

Totally cracks me up! My worst story is when I was 39 weeks pregnant with the twins my two girls went digging around in my bathroom. Literally. They opened a drawer and pawed through everything until they found the hair cutting scissors waaaaaaaaaay in the back and under a bunch of stuff. They were so proud of how they cut their hair. I was so hormonal, all I could do was cry. But I laugh now, 3 years later. LOL!
BTW, I saw pictures of your girls on my cousin's page! So cool to live close to other moms with loads of kids and twins! I'm jealous of you both! :)
