Me, Me, Me!!!


*Okay so you've all heard the story...ya know the mom at the park or in your family that says, "Timmy is just into everything...you know he pulls the toilet paper right off the roll and around the house...the other day he ate a bowl of dog food...yesterday he shoved a micro machine up his nose... I mean I just can't take my eyes of him." And then there was me, the empathic listener, "Oh that must be hard" but truly thinking "Well, lady if you would just watch your kid, it probably wouldn't be that bad." So my foot has tasted pretty good lately (get in, foot in your mouth) because I would like to introduce formally Miss Lucy LaRae (aka lucy-lu). Charming, cuddling, cute...yes she is. Sneaky, deceptive, and loud if you don't have a binki handy...yes, oh yes she is. *Note the picture and the yellow highlighter...just one of her many tricks. The other day it was sneaking a peanut butter and celery pack out of Savannah's lunch box while napping (don't ask) and smearing the peanut butter over herself and blankets. Tonight it was my zit cream smeared all over her face and I thought to myself...this girl needs a little more recognition, a little more publication. I truly luv this little chicka...she dances with style, loves for me to open the window in the morning in daddy's office so she can wave hi to all the dogs going on their morning walks, and her latest thing is answering "ME!" to almost any question you ask her (see video). So basically the next time some mom, sister, aunt, friend tells you some out landish tale about their child...just be afraid, be very afraid.

ps...Cam's been on "Night Float" at the hospital...graveyard work is more or less brutal and tonight at dinner my neice said, "Hey Uncle Cam do you know how you can describe yourself?" And he said, how...she said, "Nocturnal" with a smile...I was thinking more like "busted" "walking zombie" "totally sleep depreived" "beatdown" to name a few...luv you baby, hang in there!

I feel your pain girl! A tip that might come in handy in the future......peanut butter gets out gum in hair, clothes and everything these monsters get it on. Oh and hairspray takes out pen from leather (as in my cute red leather purse that Halle decided to draw on)

I Totally understand. I was that child that got into everything, had the paramedics called several times for things I swallowed, almost was hit by a car. Just today Aubrey put her finger it a tiny hole and it got stuck. I didn't know what to do. We almost called 911 because it WOULD NOT COME OUT. then we put dish soap around it and Jonathan pulled hard. Poor little thing. It was cut pretty bad. Oh. The things that kids will do.

Lucy is so cute and seems like she keeps you on your toes. By the way I love her outfit. My girls have it. (GO Target). My little Brayden is getting to that stage. I am just hoping I can hold out for a month or two longer:) Love the other Kami

BOWDENS said...

Thanks for the warning because I'm gonna be honest, I have thought that many a time someone is saying their kid gets into everything! I guess I'm in for it one day! Lucy is so cute...that smile has got to get her out of trouble :)

Randi said...

Well that makes me excited to have kids some day... jk! How are you? I remember when Tatum and I used to house sit for you and take care of your tiny little dog, Daphne. I am married now and my husband, Aaron and I are living in Denver for the summer. Are you in Denver or Utah?

Tracie said...

Ok, that girl needs to be on television. Maybe the J-E-L-L-O commercial? I just want to squeeze her!

The Aspirant said...

Very cute video! It was crazy to hear your voice after not hearing it for like 10 years! I would take a Lucy any day. I already know any child with Will's genes is going to be a hellion so we can commiserate together!

Jenny Mathews said...

Awwww..that was so sweet :) What a doll! That's about the age that Charlie started getting into stuff, and it hasn't stopped since! Sometimes he literally trembles as he tries to restrain himself from getting into something he's curious about!

Jonathan & Rachel said...

So cute and what a crack up! I know just what you mean-Isaac had (has) the sameness about him-just happy go lucky-everything is and adventure! What a fun little girl!
