TGIF

Today, is Friday. And had it been, say Monday, when I walked into the bathroom fifteen minutes before the boys were due at school to find this:

Expressing his anger

(point and shoot on last legs of battery came through to capture this, albiet fuzzy moment)

I would have been halfway through my third vodka now, a mere half hour later.

I would love to tell you that his brother did this to him or that it was an accident but if I did, I would be flat out lying. If you know me, then you know I am not overly adept at lying. Neither are my kids so while I don't know exactly what went down, these are the facts:

He didn't deny doing it.

Jack was no where near him during his stint in the bathroom.

Jack had already brushed his teeth.

Jack often brushes his teeth first and also often gets Kamden's brush ready for him.

Jack did not do this today.

Kamden could be heard muttering that if Jack hadn't got his toothbrush ready for him (grateful little bugger isn't he?), he was going to put toothpaste in his hair.

I didn't think too much of all this as I overheard it while making our bed. Such empty teasing threats are common in our household (judge us if you will but I am willing to bet we have more fun that you). The boys can often be seen chasing each other around the house weilding the toothpaste tube pretending they will put in the other's hair (with me yelling to get back in the bathroom before there is toothpaste all over the carpet - see I am not THAT fun). Up until today, it was all just a joke.

I just never thought one of them would do it to themselves. Vodka, anyone?

Well, I was thinking of putting toothpaste in my hair this morning but...since it doesn't look like it went so well with you, I'll pass!

Happy Friday Kami, just be glad it was toothpaste not zinc cream! My cousin's little guy smeared baby butt cream all over himself, his hair and his crib. Took his Momma about a week to get it all out, that stuff is waterproof!

Oh Kami!!! I hope the fact that I burst out laughing doesn't upset you :) Our house is full of empty threats as well, and I know how much fun you are having.

Happy Friday!

It's all fun and games until someone ends up with a head full of toothpaste.

This is way worse than the attack cat.

Oh no! Oh my gosh... that is so funny, though, so glad you took a picture of this! And yes, thank goodness for Friday... although... when you're a mom, everyday is just as tough as the last day, no?

The first time I looked at the picture I thought it was some sort of coloured glitter hairspray left over from a Halloween party in the 80's!

Toothpaste is much better. At least his hair won't get cavities now (OK, that was lame).

Happy Friday.

Ha! That's like when Nathan creamed himself with shaving cream. All you can wonder is, "WHY"?

That is too funny....er, I mean I'm so sorry! If I ever want blue extensions in my hair I know who to ask!

Ahhh, the things I have to look forward to.

Cheers!

Love his expression....it's the new thing Kami!! It washes out easily! Glad you caught it on film..one for the books!!

Hannah said...

I couldn't tell what it was at first ... toothpaste, ugh! But at least it does come out in the wash. Not something you really want to be dealing with 10 minutes before you're supposed to be out the door though!! ;-)

At least his hair smelled minty fresh?? Boys. ;)

Karen MEG said...

He's got a punk look going on, actually - I had to laugh. Sorry LOL!

Natalie said...
