If you give a Haley a minute....

If you give a Haley a minute she's going to get on the table. If she gets on the table then she'll realize there are markers up there. While you're taking the markers away and getting her down she will find a crayon on the floor. Then, while you're taking the crayon away and putting it up high high high, she will have found out that the school cabinet is open. Inside the school cabinet she will find many many treasures (scissors, school books, a whole box of colored pencils, a box of markers...) and will realize how many things she has been missing out on. While you're picking up said treasures off the floor and under the stove she will be on to the pantry--where she has found a box of cereal that is low enough for her to get and dump on the floor. And when she is done with that (before you can get to her to stop that disaster) she'll realize that dumping and crunching the cereals into smithereens has made her thirsty...so she will find a sippy cup that is NOT spill-proof and will proceed to pour it on the floor. Now, since the cereal is still on the floor, this will make a nice mush which you can clean up with paper towels...

While you are cleaning up the mush mess she will realize...that the table is not being watched and that she can get back up on it!!!!

And that, my dear friends, is what will happen in a Haley minute. Have I read a book like this??? ;)

We had a minute like this at the doctor's office today. If you give Riley a minute he'll climb on the chair to look out the window...and on and on and on. It ended with me being EXHAUSTED and Riley laughing at me. :)

Ah yes. And the only way it would be more complete was if the found sippy had been from yesterday and full of slightly sour milk. Ugh.
