It's entertaining enough living in the house with 5 kids but it makes it even more interesting when one is 10 years younger than the next oldest. Of course I'm talking about none other than my little guy Adam.
John and I were laying in bed the other night watching t.v. when I noticed that the door to our bathroom opened and there stood Adam looking absolutely adorable in his tighty whities. Now mind you, this sight alone was just too adorable for words but what happened next just fast-forwarded the moment to hilarious. The next thing I knew, he was standing there holding up both hands and promptly announced, "It's OK!". Well, of course I IMMEDIATELY sat upright. I mean really, when a 4 year old comes into your room and makes that announcement wouldn't you go from calm to panic in an instant?! Being the Mom I asked, "What happened?!", to which again he stated, "It's OK!" with this "I've got this covered" look on his face. I noticed that he was kind of standing on only one foot with the other one just touching the floor with his toes. Well, it was at that moment that I noticed that trail of white foot-prints leading out my bathroom and into the breakfast room. Adam must have read the look on my face and he immediately explained to me that somehow he managed to knock the gallon of Kilz primer over and the top came off. Luckily it was latex and not oil and was a pretty easy clean up. Ah the joys of parenthood! Did I mention that it's the most rewarding job a person could ever have?
