When things get just a little too quiet...

In a house with a 1 and a 2 year old you always have to be at the top of your game! I was cleaning up from dinner and washing some dishes. I was pretty impressed with myself for getting it done in a timely manner and I was even thinking ahead to mopping (yes I was going to mop, I HATE TO MOP!). Then I snapped back to reality and realized that it was really quiet. A little too quiet! I immidiately started looking for the 2 year old. These days he is usually the culprit. Not in the living room, not in the bathroom. A moment of worry set in! I wasn't worried for his safety, since our house is pretty safe. I was worried for whatever he was destroying! We don't call him Mr. Destructo for no reason! I found him. Here is what else I found:
What is this you ask? Keep reading.
Here is some more of it. Of course it would be in the pile of stuffed animals.
And in his bed. Didn't I JUST wash those sheets?
Even inside the Hot Wheels cars.
And finally on the window ledge, embedded into the small spaces of the window.

Mr. Destructo stole the Blackening Seasoning from the kitchen table and dumped it all over his room. I was so frustrated! But at least he gave me something to blog about tonight! Right?
Motherhood is a learning experience right? When our children are born, we don't instantly know everything. Just like we teach them everything, they teach us a few things along the way.

What I learned from this experience:
  • Blackening Seasoning burns in cuts.
  • Some stuffed animal fur holds on to powder much better than others. Therefore making it much harder to get it out. 
  • My new vacuum works great! (I'll post about it soon)
  • The crevice tool of the vacuum works great at getting seasonings out of  Hot Wheel cars.
  • Always be worried when it is silent in the house!
Gotta love being a mom right? What have your kids done lately that just made you want to scream?


  1. Wow!! He was very good at leaving no space untouched!! The whining is about to send me over the edge in our house. Oh, and the bossiness. Oh, and the backtalk!!

  2. BWHAHAH! Oh man, that's too funny-well for me anyway, cuz I didn't have to clean it up.

    When my now 12 year old son was two...he awoke early one morning and cracked eggs in the carpet..topping it with ketchup and mustard..yep-that was a really bad morning!

  3. I thought it was cinnamon. I was pretty close, at least I could tell it was a spice.

  4. TAG your it!!!
    I am following you back!

  5. Oh boy let me tell you what Bug's new habit is... taking her diaper off and pooping around the house. Today, she pooped on top of the bin I keep all my crafts in...two days ago while she was suppose to be napping she pooped all over her floor and stuff animals. Just be glad that Mr. Destructo isn't doing that! I can't wait for her to be 3!!

  6. Oh, what a mess!! Thanks for following my blog and stopping by! Have a great Wednesday!

  7. I didn't see your question part until after I sent my comment! I'm not a parent, but I am an aunt that watches my niece's quite often. They were over last Friday and my 2 year old niece had a tantrum every second literally. She also had a cough and runny nose the whole time which I got sick from. She even threw her glass bowl of spaghettio's on my floor which it broke and made a mess! I really wanted to scream because I have watched her so many times and she had never been this bad! Thanks for sharing your stories and pictures! My eyes really open up to parenthood and all the responsiblities it has!

  8. My two year old want to go potty all the time!!

    that's good right? I feel bad when I say just go in your diaper. I know bad mommy. lol

    following you back from tag it tuesday.

  9. Well, at least you learned a lot :-) My kids are always "creating" things out of things that should not be used for creating other things. I feel your pain!
