You Knew It Had To Happen...

I should have known...he was WAY too quiet. I made pan fried pork loin chops for dinner tonight. I had two paper plates on the counter with flour and breadcrumbs. Colin was playing with the stuff from his "safe" cabinet on the kitchen floor and I turned my back to him to put the chops in the pan. I was also sauteing spinach at the same time and had my back turned for a good couple of minutes. Jer walked in the back door and said "Uh...Mom...I think Colin is helping you cook". I turned around and there was Colin with the paper plate on the floor and sitting in flour. I knew something was strange since Colin did not start yelling for his Daddy when he heard the garage door. Apparently flour piles trump Daddy. :-)

I almost felt bad cleaning him up...he was having so much fun in that flour! You would have thought he had died and gone to heaven. He was also very proud of himself. The lessons that I learned from this? 1. Colin can reach anything within 6 inches of the edge of the counter tops. 2. Thank the lord above that I took the lazy way out and used the paper plate for the flour.

Have I mentioned that Colin is into everything? Enjoy the lovely pictures. :-)

What a fun night for Colin! Ha ha. Maybe not so much fun for Mama (who gets to clean the mess) but oh well! That was funny that flour piles trump Daddy :)

oh, the joy of a little boy... Jantzen is 21 months and hasn't slowed down yet. I think we have our work cut out for us for quite some time.
I'm loving every minute of it. :)
