My boys surprise me on a daily basis.  I always get a chuckle out of the things that they do because really….who would've ever thought that…

1.  hand vacs could be so entertaining for a three year old?


three year old

2.  or that it would be my responsibility to carry all of their stuff in what seemed like a roomy diaper bag, until you have to shove a cloth diaper and wipes, three sippy cups, snacks, and a big toy truck in it…



After the boys go to bed is when I find the really big surprises….like toy snakes in my bedroom floor or Lightning McQueen in my bathtub.  But who would've guessed that I would ever find…


a harmonica next to my toothpaste?


or Daddy's old Ninja Turtle there to greet me in the bathroom when I wake up?



It's the little things that make me chuckle.  Like how the Captain thought the towel ring looked better like this, with the towel likely on the floor:


upside down

Oh, kids.  They keep me guessing, laughing, and stepping on random things in the night.  How about your kids?

  1. Very cute. Enjoy them while they are young!

  2. Haha, so true!! Yesterday I found my son's toy ball in the freezer and MY sunglasses in his toy box in the basement. Oh and my 2.5 year old also LOVES the vacuum, haha.

  3. Yes, boys are something else!!  So rough.  =)  Such a difference from my daughter!!!

  4. Some of my boys have boys of their own and they ALL still surprise me!

  5. Boys are so curious. :) Love the post.
