Oh, boy, oh boy.

Dear Brady,

Let's have a chat. I"m going to be honest, the past few days have been rough. It started Monday when Mommy let Daddy sleep-in. I went to put the baby down for a nap and literally walked out of the room for ten minutes when you decided it was a good idea to pour all the spices, sprinkles and even the vanilla out onto the floor.

Well, guess what? It wasn't a good idea after all.

See that? 17 bottles, empty. I must give it to you though. 17 bottles in 10 minutes is quite the feat. 

Then, last night. Oh my. Mommy was already having a rough night. I swear, the moment the container of spaghetti slipped out of my hands, you came up to me and said, "I took the baby's diaper off.'' Taking a baby's diaper off is never a good idea. You're actually quite lucky he didn't pee in your eye because that happens a lot so be warned next time you feel inclined to do so. Mommy cleaned up the sketti and put a new diaper on the baby. I came back to find this. 

Baked fruit, anyone? I have to give you credit on your creativity. Thanks to last night, I'm not sure Daddy will ever be allowed to leave the house again and my wine collection has grown. 

One more thing, my dear. Those naps you used to take, can you go back to taking those everyday? I mean I know that being almost 3 there is so much to fill your day with but not napping isn't cool because you spend the next two hours whining and then ask to go to bed while whining into dinner. Then, you wake up in the middle of the night in what we call, 'Exorcist mode' as you basically go from sweet innocent Brady to possessed toddler. Thrashing, kicking and crying because you are sooooo tired. So, let's make a deal. You nap and I stay sane? Ok?

You are such a sweet boy and I love you to pieces but let's squash this beef we have with naps, and less messes would be nice.

Love your very tired and partly sane mommy

p.s. I know you love your brother but when his eyes are closed that does mean he is sleeping and let's keep him that way. Also, if you note his eyes are closed that does mean he is sleeping so asking me 100 times in a row will not change my answer. Ok, love?

Is it OK that this post made me laugh a lot? Forget Honey Boo Boo, YOU need a reality show.

Hilarious. I can picture it all which is why it's funny---because it's not my turn to deal with all of this. So glad you are documenting the craziness of life with two. :)
