surprise, surprise!




Well, technically they were following directions.

"Don't forget to put your toothbrushes away," I reminded the noisy boys before bed, sick and tired of cleaning up after them in the bathroom every night.

I didn't actually tell them where to put them.

I wondered why they were giggling when I put them to bed.

(And, yes. The lid was down. And yes, we have new toothbrushes without suction cups now.)

Edited to add LLama Papa deserves the photo credit on this. He originally spotted the toothbrushes and grabbed his camera. After reading all of your "Wow, what a fun Mom you are!" comments, he wants FULL CREDIT for being a super fun dad. Which he is. And the funny thing? I don't think the noisy boys were trying to play a trick on us or be particularly funny. They just thought that would be a good spot for their toothbrushes. These boys are a HOOT to live with, that's all I can say!!

Haha! I'll guess you'll have to add "but not in the toilet" to your future requests about putting the toothbrushes away. Your boys must be pretty creative! ;)

Add it to the litany of words you thought that you would never have to say as a mother, "Put your toothbrushes away BUT NOT IN THE TOILET!"

Too funny! Glad you had your wits about you enough to grab your camera and take a picture!

It is a marvelous gift that God gives such funny boys to such a creative mom.

Thanks for the laugh. It gentled my spirit today.

Oh too funny! Did you have to make a special trip to the store just for toothbrushes? I hope this store goes down in Noisy Boys lore so they can tell their own kids about it.

I fell off my chair laughing. The King rushed in to see what was going on and saw the picture and began laughing until he pulled something. We are too old for this and would like you to start putting warning lables on posts like this one. Thankyouverymuch.

Too funny! Don't you wish you had a video camera set up to see their little faces during the dirty deed?

Marmot Mom said...

Ha! Hilarious!! What a wise, wise Llama Momma you were to take a picture!!! These things get funnier as the years so on, and you are SO much better off when you can laugh instead of yell :)
