Why are they cute when they're in trouble?

Well, I've picked out pictures for the next few weeks of the year but I have to edit them so I haven't put them up yet. Everything just seems to take so much energy lately. I went to the grocery store to pick up a few things today (and by that I mean I only had to go down 3 aisles) and it totally wiped me out. In fact, I think I've had three separate naps already and am considering going to bed soon! Anyway, I just thought I'd share a cute story from today (also, then I can look back and remember it!).

Evan got in trouble today. That's nothing new. For screaming. Again, nothing new (if anyone has ideas on how to get him to stop, I'd love to hear them!) Anyway, once he gets over the fact that he's in time out, he's quiet. Then I hear this talking from the corner. Once I start listening, I realize that he's reciting his Thomas' ABC Book. We read this a fair bit and I knew he knew at least some of them but I didn't realize he knew it this well! "A is for All Aboard. All aboard calls Thomas the Tank Engine. B is for Bertie the Bus. Bertie is Thomas' friend. Beep, beep." and on and on he went. He got all the way to Q but then the timer went so he stopped. Of course, this was when I was supposed to go over and give him the stern talking to but it was oh so hard when all I could think was that's so cute and I had to hide my smile the whole time!

Anyway, I think I'll go have some ice cream and then get ready for bed!

Until next time...


  1. I agree with Jules. I think they are adorable like that on purpose. Makes it so much harder to be "stern" with them!
