My Husband "Subvet" says that when our first son "Sonshine" was born the sun rose on our world, when our second son "Gator" was born the sun laughed and when our daughter "Sugars" was born all the flowers bloomed. That says it all.

Constant Vigilance!!

Yes, folks,
I am quoting Mad Eye Moody.

Today things were a little bit hectic. We had Grannie over for lunch after church and naps were a bit delayed to allow her time to play. In my "get these kids in bed, NOW" moment, I forgot to change Gator-boy into the backwards jammies that are so far keeping him from getting that beloved diaper off.

Also in the last couple of weeks Sonshine has learned that he can indeed open doors. To ensure Mom gets to sleep past about 5:30am we have put child-proof door knob covers on the inside of the boys' bedroom door. As well as on several other doors that we don't want the little darlings opening.

So, the boys had been "in bed" for their nap for about 45 minutes today when we see Gator-boy walking down the hall toward us.

Necked from the waist down

Poop hanging out his hiney.
(oh joy)

Sonshine comes along behind him saying "need to give to momma, need give to momma"
Holding in his hands...

OH yeah, that would be the 2 pieces of the "CHILD PROOF" door knob cover.

Daddy's solution:

Duct tape, it's like The Force, it has a dark side and a light side and it holds the universe together.

I am glad that it was the door guard instead of what I first imagined...poop!!!

We had to put chain locks on the front and back door up very high to keep Second and Third from escaping to the great outdoors. I imagine that you know exactly what I mean!!!

May the backward pajama force be with you and be strong.

Subvet-you are now using one of the 2 tools that I know how to use. The other being the rolling pin!!
