Hiatus Over and Partners in Crime

Hiatus over

So I took a break. Thought you were rid of me didn't you? Haha, Fooled you! Well, the reason I took a long break was because it was the end of the school year and lots of things were happening at once. Then I just needed a little while without feeling the obligation to blog. It feels good to be back though.

Partners in Crime

Today my brother trashed the bathroom.
There was water everywhere.
I went in to help him.
I put hand soap in his hair.

And when we were done in that room
We moved on to greater things
Painting on the table
Some brightly colored rings.

After that we trashed the sofa
With peanut spread and jelly.
Mom won't find half-eaten sandwiches
Until they're really smelly.

Then we ran around the house
Like we were going crazy
Until we were told to tidy up.
That's when we acted lazy.

Is there summer school? How about summer camp? You are going to have your hands full from the sound of things, but I guess that's probably nothing new.

@ Yvonne- Roxanne and Gabriel really are partners in crime. They have been since Gabe was old enough to make a mess.

@ Lee- No summer school or camp for them. Yes, I do have my hands full. Wanna know who the biggest mess maker in my house is though. It's not the partners in crime. It's Noah the 16 month old. But his messes are the less dirty kind. More like drawers and bookshelves emptied of their contents in no time flat.
