"How do you solve a problem like...

Ethan got this 8' roll of bubble gum in his stocking. Luke and him have been LOVING it - their OWN gum!! They enjoyed a little strip of it this morning and little miss candy monster: "sister Kate" must have been watching and waiting for her chance for a piece. She got it, that's for sure. She was sitting in her new little chair this morning playing quietly with the I Touch while I unpacked our suitcases from our trip. When I went to pick up the living room, I grabbed her chair and out fell the container of gum, but without the gum! I asked her where it was and she said "mum" and pointed to her lips! I have looked everywhere thinking she must have just dropped the HUGE roll somewhere, but with no luck! I called poison control a few hours later just to make sure that there was nothing I needed to do (I can't even imagine what 6 feet of bubble gum looks like in a 2 year old tummy). The lady was trying to be helpful and informative, but she could not stop laughing!

Since I started this post a few days ago, little Kate has found more trouble!
This is where I found her Sunday morning before church (with another wad of gum in her mouth):
...and today at work, she painted her eyes with white out! I seriously wished I had a camera for that one! She still has little white dots allover her eyelashes!

I share these fun moments in motherhood to not only show the grandma's what a CUTE, little STINKER they have for a granddaughter, but also to remember forever the "fun" she brings to our family!
