What the %@*#? Wednesday, 2nd Edition

There are hundreds of dollars worth of toys in this house. Toys that light up, talk, sing, roll, bounce; toys that even drive themselves. I'm beginning to think we've wasted every hard-earned penny spent at Toys 'R' Us. The little Beast would rather play with arbitrary, decidedly non-toylike items he finds around the house (like this). Case in point - I left the little Beast alone for a nap, and this is what he did instead of sleeping.


What the %$*#?! Yes, those are diapers. A LOT of diapers. In a mix of types and sizes, which made it a pretty difficult mess to pick up. Oh well... at least they were clean.

beausarmywife4life said...

so much for my briliant idea!!! Love the mess...clean up, clean up every body every where! :) P.S. I will go edit my post for you!!

Tim said...

That is so funny! So been there and done that! It could have been worse I guess.

By the way, did you see my last post? If not check it out, it was very difficult to write but it should be worth it. If you feel led to do so, post about it so that we can get the word out so that this ministry I am starting will speak to many.

Love and Prayers,

Tim

OH NO HE DI-N'T. Maybe it's really like a form of art. The kids a genius and you don't even know it. Bam, I called it.

Your comment on my last post made me laugh out loud. "If it's pee you are in so much trouble!" Ahahaha! Yes, thankfully, I have never spoken those words! Though, because I spend so much time with my nieces and nephew... I do deal with spitup on my shoulder. Nasty little nuggets! Oh, and I usually dedicate a post to talkig about this boy of mine on Fridays... come back and see me!:)

Jocasta said...

Simply AnonyMom said...

I remember when my little ones were noth in diapers. I think this scene was a 3-4 times weekly occurance.

I promise, some day when they are both Potty Trained you will look at this picture and smile.

Happy WW from Bonney Lake, WA.

jen@odbt said...

Oh boy - that's a whole lotta diapers. I remember when I had 2 under two, then 3 under 4. I always had 2 in diapers at some point. Did you play the clean up game?

Brenda said...

Kameron said...

Oh the things I have to look forward to when my little taz is in a toddler bed!

angie said...

First of all...........you are one smart momma. Stocking up on diapers like that. I used to do the same thing. When my twins were born I had four in diapers.......well, three in diapers and one in a pull up at night. Your assortment reminds me of those days! :)

Sleeping Beauty and King of the Beasts are GORGEOUS!

Tiaras & Tantrums said...

BlogBaby said...

Mrs. {Erin} Cox said...

Oh LOL yes, at least they were clean... That's so funny. My daughter likes playing with her diapers too. She takes them off if she's not wearing pants. That can be problematic. Happy Wednesday!

Jen E @ mommablogsalot said...

Oh my lord - reminds me of the time my son got ahold of a tissue box in his bedroom during naptime. :)

Jill (Sneaky Momma) said...

Looks like he had a blast!!!
We had 2 under two, too. I wouldn't want it any other way! My girls are 16 months apart. They are now three and 20 months. It is fun to watch the youngest 'catch up' to the oldest. They are the best of friends. How far apart are your little ones?

Caitlin said...

Ahahahahaha!! That is hilarious! (to me, whose child has not discovered his diapers yet!) How classic and exhausting!

Faith - That's Just Freaking Lovely said...

That's too funny .. at least it was diapers and not baby powder or something like that!

kbreints said...

Looks like he had fun!! But alas, I understand... my child would rather play with empty juice, food and soda containers!!

Melinda said...

That's hilarious...at least for me it is...probably not so funny to you : )

MaryAnne said...

This has happened at my house so many times! At least your kids don't seem to have learned the second step yet (unfold the diapers and start wearing them on your head, etc).

jenn said...

Oh no! And I was irritated that my daughter pulls out her diapers for her dolls. At least it's only one or two at a time. Haha.

Ashley said...

OMG SO FUNNY! This kind of makes me want to NOT have kids! ;-)

Hootin' Anni said...

Regarding the blog 'title' buttons on my posts...tho mine are larger in text size, you can go out on the 'net and make your own...choosing colors, etc.

Leslie West said...

oh my goodness...is this what i have to look forward to with my little man????

Alicia said...

Oh my gosh..I remember my kids did that at one time!! I'm soooo glad I'm done w/ that stage! LOL

Farrah said...

Hysterical!! I bet he had fun doing that even if it wasn't fun to clean up. At least it is a funny/embarrassing moment you can share with his friends or prom date when he is older! :)

Paula O'Hara said...

Soooo hilarious. My little one wants to play with the nappies(diapers) also! Thanks for adding me to your list!

Domestically Disabled Girl said...

Sparkette said...

OMG! What a mess... Thanks for stopping by my page!

Jennifer said...

Oh I recall many days like that. You are right, at least they were clean. :)

scrappysue said...

Chris said...

You're hilarious!

Yes, at least they were clean, and yes you have wasted every cent at Toys 'R' Us -- but you're in good company!

Synergy Girl said...

Those are some NAUGHTY pants!! My little three-year-old has the SAME pair!! I love your blog...reminds me a little of myself!!

Julie said...

Nice! I'm sure he was just inspecting them for you...making sure they were quality diapers.

Stesha said...

It looks like somebody had lots of fun. It amazes me that children will play with diapers, rather than toys. My children do this all the time:)

Hugs and Mocha,
Stesha

Lorie said...

Help Me Henry....you're right, it could have been worse; and they could have been dirty. Although you probably wouldn't have that many dirty diapers in your house, would you?

Live.Love.Eat said...

You beat me to it...I was going to say, at least they weren't filled with yuk yuk!!!

But that is really funny!!!!

shunee said...

LOL yes I do understand that feeling all to well. My ds use to do that all the time when he was a baby.how cute.

Rachel said...

Oh my gosh - that's insane! At least it wasn't a "messy" mess... ya know?

And thanks for the comment about Heather and I being I Heart Fans! I found your blog through your comment on hers! Such a small world! Maybe sometime you can come through here and stay longer than a potty break (that *was* your comment, right?) :)

Casey's trio said...

My girls do this with their underwear. They love to make a huge mess and dump undies and socks all over the floor!

MammaDucky said...

For a split second, I thought you had snuck into my house and snapped a picture!! My youngest never gets tired of the "pull out every diaper" game.
P.S. Love your blog title!

Jolene said...

LOL That's a whole lot of diapers!

Keri said...

Go Little Beast! Way to tear it up! This is a crack up!

Megan said...

LOLOLOL Hilarious!

TuTu's Bliss said...

LaTonya Yvette said...

Now this is really funny!

K said...

Two kids under two, huh? That sounds like some serious work! That's quite an amazing little mess! HA!

I often wonder why I buy toys too!

KiraAJ said...

Yes i to decided along time ago that toys r not worth the money! My son as his gotten older still doesnt play with his toys! It kinda drves me nutts! :)
~SITS~

Awdrey said...

Oh my, how do did you get so many diapers?
