A Day in the Life of a BUSY almost 2 year old...
7 am - Wake up (on the wrong side of the bed) dragging all blankets to the living room - there are 4
7:05 am - flush toilet for no reason, opening bathroom door even though there are childproof knobs that my 5 yr old siblings can't open...what a joke!
7:15 am - Have all blankets stolen by mom to wash
7:30 am - Eat breakfast, spilling most of the sticky cereal down front, under chin, and on the tray
8:00 am - get dressed and ready to leave
8:30 am - get crammed into the stroller with baby sister in the back, have bag full of m&m's thrown at you, go into the school for kindergarten assessment
9:15 am - home from K assessment
9:17 am - strip all clothing off of back, keeps the diaper on just to humor mom, run around the house like a maniac.
9:18 am - flush toilet for no reason
9:18.5 am - flush toilet again - just because
9:19 am - flush it again, just for good measure...
9:25 am - have clothes put back on by mom
9:30 am - put sister's new school socks on, pulled up to knees - and add brother's transformers sneakers to the beautiful ensemble...amazingly, the white bow is still intact in the ponytail...What Not to Wear - watch out!
9:45 am - take off all clothes because mom is nursing the baby and can't stop me.
10:00 am - find sister's shorts in the drawer and try to put them on upside down...
10:05 am - flush toilet
10:15 am - run around the house - after having diaper re-applied to body
10:30 am - beg for root beer - and get it, because mom is so tired she doesn't care anymore
10:45 am - flush toilet
11:00 am - dressed again, and put back in the car for shopping trip - WHOOOPEEEE!
11:30 am - arrive at Target

1:00 pm - arrive at Burger King for lunch
1:10 pm - get lunch
1:12 pm - pass lunch to little cousin, who eats most of it - except for the root beer

4:10 pm - cuddle with dad on couch for about 30 seconds
4:44 pm - run around screaming because of no nap and no lunch
