  5. Sooo cute! What a little trooper not to give up!

  6. Oh so true! I love this! Thank goodness for child-proof medicine bottles and locks as our children are very determined little people when it comes to opening or getting into something!

  7. Sandra's Fiberworks says:

    I have to work on that, making my kids do the laborious — I'm too quick to just want to get things done. "Why don't you get the boys to help you?" My mother said as I was packing up to go back to our house, now that we had power. Good question. Except, I already felt too taxed to ta myself more by getting them off their TV butts. I was ready to turn into a hurricane mom myself. Bad momma. Bad, bad, bad.

  8. Hopes@Staying Afloat! says:

    My girl is the same way, it's the messier way so I wouldn't have it any other way!
