Help!.....

Addison has tested my patience at every turn lately. She is definitely the most mischevious of all my children. Ian was the angel child (arent all first-borns that way?)..... Evan was my quiet but injury prone little one.....Addison is just plain naughty, AND injury prone. Double whammy. She has decided she likes sliding down the railing of our basement stairs and found out today how badly it hurts to fall off and straddle the wooden casing along the bottom. She got hurt in a place that we wont talk about. She also went head first into the canned food isle shelving at Walmart, causing her cheek to turn purple and blue. I was sure she would have a black eye but looks like we might avoid that....thankfully. Tonight I was doing homework with Ian and I heard her making a choking/gagging noise and when I ran to her aid, I realized that she had eaten a packet of sugar free Kool-Aid....just the powder! It took her breath away and I thought she might throw up, which probably wouldnt have been a bad thing. Gross! Here is what you look like after "drinking" powder from a Kool-Aid packet! Her hands are completely stained too so I dont know how long it will take to fade from her face. No wonder it doesnt come out of carpet.

Isn't funny how differently kids are wired...sounds like she is going to give you a run for your money! All of my kids have had there "moments"! But Bayley so far was probably the worst toddler...so, no the oldest aren't always the easiest!

Oh how fun for you! I must second the fact that oldest are not always easiest. Not in my case anyway, more like most difficult. Well atleast she is cute!

OOOH- and it's REALLY good for those teeth too!!! Tee Hee- but i'm not agreeing on the 1st child being the angel- found Cooper bopping Brooklyn on the head, repeatedly saying, "no, No, No!" Such a stinker, and got a few bops of his own:)
Hard not to laugh at them , right? Even when it's a BOG mess?!?!?
