I recently noticed that the majority of my family posts are about my wonderful little three year old boy. He really keeps me hopping, and if I don't stay on top of him, well, then, I get a good blog post.
Today he tried to make his own lunch - by microwaving a cheese sandwich for several minutes. I was down in my dungeon doing laundry, the baby by my side, thank heavens. The Boy comes and asks me if I smell that stinky? I knew he wasn't talking about his diaper, since he never does. So I ask him what is stinky and he said it was the sandwich. Withoust hesitation I ran upstairs and it was completely filled with smoke.
I yell to The Boy to stay downstairs with the King and I start opening every window and door in the house. After a while, the smoke was gone.
And, all is well.
However, my lovely white, clean microwave is now a sort of icky yellow on the inside. And, after a few minutes with a razor blade, I was able to recover the glass tray.
The good that came of this:
My microwave still works.
I know my smoke detectors need new batteries.
Another good story to share with Bert.
My microwave looks like something from a boys dorm now.
I am hosting book club tomorrow and I am pretty sure things will still smell a little smokey.
So, back to my original question, are most three year old boys like this?
(the list could go on and on and on)
THIS, however, is why I haven't given up!
And THIS! (and THIS)
Please tell me I am not alone!
