Tales of the Random Things My Kid Carries

I think Piper’s an interior designer at heart.  That would explain why she insists on disagreeing with me about the location of EVERY DANG THING that exists in my house.  And why EVERY DANG THING that’s in her realm of maneuverability is suddenly at risk.

Problem is that I routinely underestimate her strength, and therefore the number of things she CAN move. 

I was more than a little taken aback when I noticed a giant blue streak quickly moving across the house this morning.  A bucket (that was, by the way, filled with balls that are now spread from one side of the house to the other) that’s as big as she is was apparently misplaced in the room-o-toys, and was better suited in the family room. 

And tonight, after she made Luke read her Barnyard Dance book for the 9 millionth time, she decided she needed to take the bucket for a promenade, too.  She was literally dancing in circles laughing at herself.




Now if I could just teach her to put things IN her bucket that need to go back to their mom-approved homes, things would be great.  But somehow I doubt that’s gonna happen any time soon.


  1. Yeah probably not gonna happen soon. LOL

  2. Oh Piper you are so cute!!! tell your mom you are building muscles:)

  3. Can never underestimate these kids...can we:)

  4. Hi, Piper!

    I bought you that big bucket for your 100 balls; where did they go?? Did your doggies hide them??? Is silly Daddy teasing you??

    You are going to be a wonderful big sister! You are going to be a big help to your mommy! Isn't it going to be fun having a baby to play with?

    I'm glad you like your new bed. You are getting to be such a big girl!

    Love you, Nana :)
