The picture above says it all!!! Elek James my youngest Grandbaby is on the prowl! Yes, that boy is into everything! Each morning before he arrives I have to clear all tables of pictures, floral arrangements, candles, doilies and anything else within his reach. I have spent lots of time on my knees (not in prayer)cleaning up dumped cups of coffee, tea, water and all other beverages left for him to grab. Thank God for hardwood floors they certainly make clean ups easier!
As you can see in the picture our heat vents are in the floor. And that little man pulls them off and tries to climb in. Oh boy! He keeps me hopping! Of course all bedroom and bathroom doors must stay closed, because he loves nothing better than to get to the cordless phones and unroll miles of toilet paper...Ugh! All phones or remote controls can become air born missiles at any given time. Coming apart and batteries spilling out everywhere as they hit the floor!!!
Dressing and changing his diaper is "a total body workout!" Have you ever wrestled a monkey? I have! And his temper is starting to show itself. How? With screaming and stomping of his feet...does a little Elek jig that makes me laugh.
Everyday after he leaves I polish fingerprints from the tables, vacuum crumbs and put everything back in it's place...and I wonder why this ol' grammy is too pooped to participate? And the very next morning I get to do it all again. Funny thing is...I wouldn't have it any other way. He brings me such joy!
Love to all!
