In 5 minutes

You'd think after 3 1/2 years with Aidan I'd have learned that taking my eyes off of him for 5 minutes can, and most likely will, create an average of an hour's work to fix or clean up what he destroyed. Case in point... today I wanted to take my shower. Asher was playing in his high chair and Aidan was playing with his little vacuum. I went into the bathroom, turned on the shower, cleaned my face, and brushed out my hair before going back out to corral them in the bathroom with me. In the short time it took me to do those things Aidan got my Dyson vacuum cleaner out and vacuumed up all of Lexi's food and WATER! Then he took the canister off and was dragging it across the carpet leaking nasty black water on the carpets we just had cleaned last week. He looked at me and said, "Hey Mama, can you please not get me in trouble for this?" For a minute I actually thought my head might explode right then and there. I look over at him right now and he's eating Gold Fish crackers and watching Timon & Pumba - looking like an angel. All I can say is he's lucky he's got multiple personalities and not just the one devious one!

I know. And when you hear that sweet, little voice of his you can't even remember anything he ever did that was naughty.
