Princess, complete with PB&J face and chocolate covered hands, had my pins out and was sticking them into the side of the Pack-n-Play. (Thankfully no baby was inside.) She looked at me with her saucer eyes and said "Put away, Mom?". As I followed her over to my desk, I saw scene #2...She had performed "surgery" on my stack of bills, totally destroying the blue envelope and extracting the check from another. (I did reconstructive surgery on the blue envelope before I took this picture.) I'm sure the Qwest is going to wonder why their check is covered in chocolate fingerprints, but hey, at least they got paid!
I buried my face in my hands when I saw the scribbled on chair and took a few deep breaths. Meanwhile, Princess fled the scene, her hair flapping in the breeze.
I only have myself to blame. It's totally par for me to start something and not complete it all the way. Or if I complete it, I don't always clean up my mess. I mean, what busy Mom can? I'm constantly being interrupted in the midst of doing something. (or at least that's my excuse :)! ) I tend to make a huge mess in my office and then clean it up all at once. (No wonder where my kids get it from. Here I thought it was from their father!)
When I do that, I try to keep my office door shut to prevent this type of thing. When I went to take a shower, the kids were outside having a picnic and I obviously didn't shut my door completely.
Oh well. At least I helped prevent the onslaught of Alzheimer's when I put the blue envelope back together, it was a puzzle of sorts! ;)
(Sorry if you're tired of hearing about her antics. This posting is more for me to have a record of her shenanigans since I'm not always good about writing things down on paper.)
