I didn’t think that I would survive my children’s childhood. The three of them were into everything, every day, and I never knew what was going to happen next. It seemed like they plotted and planned everything together to see how long it would take Mama to crack!
One day, my s0n decide they should play “barber shop”. This game consisted of him cutting all of my daughter’s hair off. Neither one of them had had a haircut, and had such beautiful curls. I knew they were being too quiet, so you can imagine how shocked I was to see both girls come out of the playroom bald!
Another time, my oldest daughter was about three years old, and frequently got up in the middle of the night to get things to eat out of the refrigerator. I got up one morning to discover a 2 pound jar of grape jelly and a dozen eggs smushed into her carpet in the bedroom. I could have used a professional carpet cleaner that day!
And just imagine this: I left my husband in charge of the children while I went to do grocery shopping. He took them over to his parent’s home. The kids went outside to play. After a while, they started looking for the kids. They found them in the garage, painting my father-in-law’s red truck with some white paint that someone left within their reach.
