Once Upon A Time

I lived the life of having bags of makeup just sitting on bathroom shelves waiting to be used. Bottles of lotions & perfumes lined up on counter tops. Baskets of fun hair accessories waiting to be paired with that special outfit.

Now…those pennies & dollars once spent on myself have been used for diapers…milk…medical bills…diapers

Don’t get me wrong, I’m not complaining, but living in a one income family consists of making sacrifices and the frivolous spending went out the window…quickly replaced by conscientious, well planned purchases.

Yet, a certain little goober that runs around our house…or should I say, runs our house…has decided that the few necessities I buy for myself should also be his.

A few weeks back he opened up my brand new bottle of foundation (apparently he can unscrew caps to bottles now) and flung it, splatter paint style, all over the bathroom.

Or his recent discovery that he is able to open the drawers and reach inside to it’s contents…


Or the excitement of discovering what is in those boxes below the sink…


He sure is lucky that he’s cute.


  1. Oh! The tampons! Priceless!

  2. This is hilarious!! A blackmail picture for sure :) I know what you mean about being a one income family. It's hard sometimes! But to be able to stay home with those little guys is completely worth it!

  3. Well momma, I think you need some serious baby proofing!! The tampons are great!

  4. This is soo funny. Pretty sure Jack opened a tampon yesterday. He thought it was like the coolest thing ever. Now I have to hide them, not cool. Hide your glass perfume bottles!

  5. Haha! He is so cute!

    We have the same red rug in our upstairs hallway. :)

  6. Hehehe, the tampons, LOL. I once caught Nathan trying to teeth on something that he should definitely have never had his hands on.
