my favorite kind of mess is no mess. but i have kids and i am kind of lazy, so i forfeited the right to that reality. but if there has to be a kid-made mess, i would almost always prefer a huge ridiculous one over a medium sized one. this is because medium sized messed make me insane and frustrated and annoyed. but gigantic messes usually are so out of control that they bypass my angry/annoyed sensors and go straight to hilarious dumbfoundedment.
such was the case here.
and then again when i put judah on his potty one day while i was really distracted and forgot to notice that the BOWL wasnt inside of the frame until he informed me, "mah poop on floor." poor guy got MAJOR points for stopping mid-movement to tell me once he realized what was happening so i could go get the bowl. i was SO thankful he had when i saw the last half of that payload safely caught. it could have been much worse. mostly i just laughed and apologized to the kid while i cleaned up the tiny pile on my carpet. it was so bad that it was funny.
and such was the case when jesse decided to break my rule of not taking the main snack mothership (box of crackers, full bag of grapes, bag of chips) out of the kitchen. i always give the kids food in little them-sized bowls. but when jesse is being awesome dad and taking care of the kids, he can do it his way. and he did.
the pictures dont capture the full devastation of the event. i think jesse had cleaned up a lot of these before he took the pics. this was an almost-full box of cheerios and she poured out and slung every one of them all over the living room. it was so bad that it was good.
"well you cant judge it now. i havent even started cooking yet!"
