I'm no expert...

I'm just a mom who likes to pick and choose her battles.

And these just aren't important enough.

This is the stuff of childhood!

Why not brush your teeth in the nasty bath water?!

Yes, you may eat ice cream sandwiches at 10:15 in the morning
when it's 20 degrees outside!

Thank Heavens that is just water color and it comes off.

Just ask Grandpa first.
 I'm sure he would love for you to climb on his head.

Watering the plants, I see.

Sure. We can camp in your bedroom!

Bed? Chair?
As long as you are sleeping, that's all that matters to me!

Yes. You can go to the grocery store in your tutu.
But you do have to wear shoes! 

Well...I kinda needed that box...but I guess there is always packing tape!

I know watching TV in your undies is a wonderful experience!

Go ahead! Make yourself look like a girl!

You are going to be hot going outside like that,
 but I guess you will figure that out yourself!

Sure. You can wack your friends with pool noodles!
 Just don't hit their face!

I know you are bored honey.
My camera is in my purse.
Why don't you play with it while you are waiting so patiently for me to be done!

LOL :) So true! Life is just too short to worry about the small stuff, and kids will be kids.

The Price Family! said...

I LOVE IT!! Those little things are the things that I think kids will remember most about being little. That their parents just let them be kids.

My little man is 5 months old...I guess these are things I will have to look forward to later...lol! Thank you for sharing your pictures! :)

I love it! When I see little kids in hilarious random outfits, I can't help but laugh because I know mom was probably saying to herself "pick your battles. Pick your battles". Dade liked to wear his snow boots with shorts during the summer. I got a lot of strange looks but also a lot of "been there!" looks from parents :)

Those were hilarious...especially the pool noodles and the dentist's office! Truly made me laugh out loud...which confused my husband who was sitting next to me watching TV, where nothing funny was on. :) Thanks so much for sharing those!!
