taking matters into his own hands...

Lately I've been letting Josh play in the kitchen sink in the evenings to cool off a little & to 'de-grime' him a bit (kind of pre-bath cleaning one could say). This has become his favorite time of the day & he does not want to get out of the sink when I try to take him out. He isn't one for throwing fits, but this gets him every time...full on arched back accompanied by prolonged kicking & screaming. Well today I was helping the girls in their bedroom & Josh snuck away. I didn't think anything of it until Jon said "Allison, do you know what's going on in the bathroom?" Huh? No, I didn't know what he was talking about. So imagine my surprise when I found that Josh had taken it upon himself to climb into the sink and bathe himself (diaper and all). At least he brushed his teeth in the process. He thought he was pretty funny & tried ignoring me when I came in to ask him what he was doing...finally I got him to look up at me & I got a picture of his silly little face! He sure keeps me on my toes lately...but I can't say I don't love it!

Oh my, good thing it wasn't hot water - that might not have been so humorous. I love that he does things like that, it is so cute (as is he).

Little Climbing Bugger!! I love when they think "they can handle it on their own" at age 2!! The toothbrush is the icing on the cake. Might as well get them both done at once. I like the way he's thinking :)

When she saw this picture Alivia asked, "Mom, can you make little Joshie laugh??" Clearly she was hoping for a video.

That's so cute!

He looks like he's having so much fun in that sink - what a good boy to clean up & brush his teeth all by himself.

I know you know this, but I want you to have it confirmed from an outside source: Joshua is a seriously special kind of cute. We're all about busy boys. And a busy boy who wants to clean up? Please. It doesn't get any better than that.
