Look at What I'm Dripping With...Little Boys.

Wednesday I didn't have a chance!!! 


     First, I had a Slip & Slide, brand new in a box, in the front closet.  Bo took it out, spread it out, & dumped water on it...IN MY KITCHEN!  I caught him pretty early so he had only dumped a glass or two. 
    I knew it would be a long day since we had to stay off the grass all day, our lawn guys just fertilized.  I wanted to keep him busy so I set him up with the water table on the deck...here is how I found him a few minutes later:
    When I dried him off & got him redressed I set him up with some Apple Jacks for lunch.  I was crazy, I thought, "Oh...I have a few minutes to blog...he is watching T.V. & eating lunch.  That was not the best idea...soon Annie was yelling, "MOM!!!!  Bo is drinking out of the milk carton!"  See, the mistake was that I left the box of cereal and the milk on the table.
   The dangerous part was that the milk was about 2 inches from my camera...that is the only reason I even took the time to grab my camera.

   Yeah...not my best day :)  This comes the day after Bo "Freed the ants" from Annie's ant farm...I found it opened lying on the carpet...ants gone. 

   Later that night, I got a little break from mom duties (Bo) when I went to church to teach my Pioneer Club boys.  Now instead of 2, I had 6!  But lucky for me...these boys behaved beautifully!  We even got done with our activity early & I challenged them to a contest.  Who ever drew the best picture of ME will get a sucker next week.  See what you think:

Here is what they had to look at:
Not my best...but considering that I was still breathing after the day I had, I'm okay with it :)

Here are their masterpieces:

Conner
Griffin
Joshua
Benjamen
When I went to see Nick's he looked at me embarrassed & said, "I think I made it too big."  I am going to choose to interrperate it as, "You are much skinnier than this."  :)

Nick

& this guy drew my sister Kate who was teaching with me.

Elijah
He nailed it :)

So what do you think?  I am pretty sure I will need a whole bag of suckers!

Just think if Miss Hannigan had an orphanage full of boys :)

Tomorrow the giveaway ends!  Hope you are in!

Oh Libbie, They are all masterpieces! As for that Bo....I have a granddaughter he needs to meet. Those two are MADE for one another. Does your family believe in arraigned marriages?

Beautiful!!!! Children are a blessing from the Lord!!! Again your little Bo reminds me so much of my son Kylan. He's 20 years old now . . . still loves to create his own world. God bless you my friend!!! Give that Bo a BIG kiss for me. I posted about my youngest son, Caleb. Stop by and take a look. Oh yea, I NEED THOSE BOWLS!!! (LOL !!!!)
In HIS HANDS,
Bren

I know I say this all of the time but I just love your stories! Everyone of us I'm sure had a Bo or two! Mine were my oldest, Danielle, my youngest, Max! The Lords way of showing me what motherhood would bring and a good way to round it off! As for the portraits... I do think everyone deserves a sucker, I love how they all focused on your curly hair... and WOW is Kate a rapper now?!! Have a great weekend! Theresa

Aw Libbie as always I love your post. Oh how I wish I lived close enough to help you with Bo..he is such a hoot but a handful...hahaha
Boy your post brings back memories!
I love theses pictures the boys drew of you...what a day you had and still look beautiful. So love you and sister Kate.
Honey your comment to me was just too lovely and befoe I go out and start mowing again I had to come by and tell you how much I appreciate your words and you.
I know you would help me if you could but actually your words meant more to me than I could ever tell you. After reading your comment I had to make myself not cry. lol
What a blessing to have found you and your family and Kate and her family.
If I make any money off this house I am coming to see you all...hahaha
Don't forget you all always have a place here in Texas if you need one
Love
Maggie

Libbie, I'm still smiling as I write this!! I was wondering how you had the patience to snap that milk picture, until I read you were saving your camera. What a total guy thing. You do know they never outgrow that!

And the idea for the pictures. Each one could win candy for a different reason. They all were good. How fun! I bet they love you and sis teaching them. Blessings**

OH Libbie...yep they are all winners. I just get a kick outta little Bo, he's such a rascal. He remindes me of my 3 rug rats...I'm so happy when they are here..and relieved when they go home...
Have a wonderful weekend.

tootles,
bunny

I bet when he falls asleep each night he crashes! Come to think of it, I bet you do too after racing around looking after cheeky Bo all day! You look gorgeous after having spent the day with a bunch of boys-how do you do it????

Best wishes and have a beautiful week,
Natasha.

Have a great Sunday!

Two Shades of Pink said...

Your precious, sweet, mischievous Bo, quite frankly, makes me tired. The fact that you catch your kids on film is so priceless. I picture them as adults just laughing together at all the memories you collected for them. And as for your adorable photo and wonderful drawings...yep. I would have to say suckers for all because they were wonderful! Like you!

Just Breathe said...

What a day, OMG is he a go getter! Yes they should all get a sucker.

MS/AC Fan said...

All the chalk art is too cute. Gotta say, though, that I love the way Joshua captured your beautiful curls and blue eyes. Glad to see you were still smiling after a day like that!
