Kenyon Creativity & A Little Middleton Madness

I've decided to start sharing some of my sons creative ideas to give you all a giggle and me a release. This boy is too much!

Today I walk out of my room to find Kenyon sitting on a large dry erase board at the top of the stairs (where you see Kaden asleep - I'll save that story for another day).

As I walk towards him I see him smiling so big as he goes sliding down. He picks up the board which is taller than him (as if it's a snowboard) and with a BIG smile on his face says "mom, can I please not be in trouble since you have never said I can't do this and because it is REALLY FUN!" To that I replied "sure., but if you do it again you will be in big trouble" after all - that was a great reason not to be in trouble right? Plus, it was a very creative idea don't you think?


And here are a few pictures to make you smile or just to help you think we are OUT OF CONTROL!

Notice the extra ropes tied all over our playset... only a few near death experiences with those so far!
And here Kaden is jumping to dad after his lesson on walking the fence - a skill Kenyon posessed at about 2 years of age. You can see Kenyon is about to push his pansy brother who is nervous to jump to dad... "come on Kaden, you are 17 months old - it's time to be a big boy and jump". Which he did with no help from brother... yeah for me and my two adreneline junkies huh? And if you count dad I guess I have 3.

Oh and quickly on a more positive note - Kenyon (4 years) can now read 3 letter words... see he's not that dumb!

after a second look and re-thinking... I think Kenyon was trying to protect Kaden from falling in that picture on the fence.

Warms my heart to see someone else "enjoying" their own little Middleton Madness...I know this comes a little late but, welcome to my world! :)

I love the pic of everybody on the play structure! They sure don't show it used that way on the packaging! I'm thinking that should be your Christmas card this year. :)

Near Death, nuthin. They still need to go through mind numbing injury and weapons of mass destruction. Then comes the near death stuff.

OK, whose idea was it to put Kaden upon the fence? Did you have to rush it? He would have figured it out in a couple of months any way on his own (months that could have been that much more peaceful without adding his antics to Kenyon's). Amy, God will bless you for each day you keep those boys alive. This family has way too much energy and guts and curiosity about the balance of man vs gravity. Your guardian angels are definitely on overtime at your house.

Ummm... Pretty sure your kid is 18 months. Don't worry. Aunt Rochelle can keep track of how old you are Kaden!
