Jason comedy, a visit from FEMA and bye-bye GaGa and Papa

So Mr. Man is pretty darn funny... Ms. Lily is funny too, but this post is dedicated to Hurricane Jason!

Here are a few funny things he's done over the last couple of days.

Yesterday Papa and I took the kiddos to the pool at the condo while Gaga got the last of their stuff together. Babies have their little swimmers and suits on and off we go. I put Jason down when we got there and watched him like a hawk while I took my shoes and shorts off. I see him stop (not normal) and then he's peeing. I think.. "okay, at least he didn't do it in the pool." Then I think, "oh wait, he has a diaper on why is that happening." I go over to investigate and see that when pulling on his little swimmer I left Mr. Peepers peepin' out the top. (I guess this is a funny thing mommy did not a funny thing Jason did.) At any rate... it was funny and I'm thankful that he waited until he was outside to pee... not in the house, in the car or at Gaga's. I can't move onto the next funny story w/o telling about how Papa threw himself on the grenade and most likely swore off taking the kids swimming. We wrapping things up. Jason is doing his favorite activity at the pool... exploring the pool deck. Lily is checking the garbage can. I turn around after grabbing Lily - Papa is watching Jason - to see my dad throwing himself down on the pool deck at pool edge almost landing on Jason to prevent him from walking right into the pool. I'm just glad dad just skinned his toe and didn't have a heart attack as he watched Jason's short life flash before his eyes. We can all laugh now. :) Apparently Jason moves to fast for Papa.

Okay.. moving on.

Today (my first day w/o help this summer) bedtime came and it was time for baths. I had run the bath, closed all doors except the bathroom and the kid's bedroom so I could manage two naked babies running around. I grabbed the baby gate from the kitchen for the top of the stairs and sent the babies up. (they now crawl up on their own). They still had on their diapers and shorts. I was placing the baby gate at the top of the stairs and I look up to see Jason standing in the tub - very proud of himself - in his diaper and shorts. I went over to get him out to check/remove his poopy diaper and saw a library book floating in the tub... guess I'll be buying that one. Nice! After his bath I put him down on the hardwood and he promptly attempted to take off in a full sprint. His feet went out from under him and his head hit the floor. UGH! Bath time didn't go over well.

We (and by "we" I mean Gaga) got a new house and it lasted about 5 mins through Hurricane Jason - see picture below - FEMA has been in w/ it's packing tape and we're back to square one for now.

Jason and Lily both like to sit in their seats for a big round of applause.

  1. Their Papa and Gaga are going to miss them SOOO much!

    So do you think the 'Jason hurricane' phenom has anything to do with him being a boy? If so, I'm in trouble!

  2. from what I've heard from others, yes, it does have to do w/ the boy thing... though Lily can be a little hurricane too. Karen, Julie... any feedback on that one?

  3. So sad that your parents left! They will miss the babies and vice versa. Love the stories. Handling two toddlers cannot be an easy task! Since all Anna can do right now is scoot backward across the floor, I'll have to let you know about the gender difference re: hurricanes. :)

  4. Um yes, I hate to say it, but Liam was much more destructive than Riley is! He is just much more physical. Riley is active, but she just listens better and seems to be more gentle with things. I had to laugh when I saw the destructo house - that would have totally happened with Liam! ;-)

  5. Haha! My little guy was in his swimsuit minus the diaper on Labor Day, and was "talking" to a 3-year-old when he started making the weirdest faces and noises of surprise. The 3-year-old says, "He's peein'" and sure enough, a stream was running down his leg and onto our big beach towel. He'd never peed without the diaper like that and it really surprised him! Wow, did we get a good laugh. After we cleaned up all the pee. And settled down the grossed-out 3-year-old!
