My most embarrassing day EVER!

So, this morning I took the 2 boys to a bday party for one of Maddox's 2 year old buddies. They party was really cute. They had a company bring out farm animals for the kids to pet. All the kids really loved the animals. Leyton loved the bunnies and Maddox loved the piggies and goats. So, Maddox eventually thought he had had enough of the animals. He was hot too and wanted a juice box. So, while everyone was still out in the backyard petting all the farm animals, playing on the swingset, etc. Maddox wanted to come inside to do a puzzle. So, I let him go in to play. I kept checking on him every few minutes or so to make sure he was playing nicely with the toys inside.

Well, probably no more than 3-4 minutes of me not checking on him he decided to...

SPREAD POOP ALL OVER THEIR COUCH AND SOME TOYS!!!! Oh, and he was naked waist down and had poop all over his shirt!

Thankfully EVERYONE was outside so they didn't see me acting a fool to get him and the house cleaned up. I made a mad dash to the bathroom to wash him up and in the meantime clogged their toilet with a papertowel! I mean, seriously, what else could go wrong?? Oh, just wait!

So, I get Maddox cleaned, get the baby wipes and start cleaning the poop on the wood floor, toys, coffee table, and suede couch! At this point, my friend, the bday mom came in to help and she was very kind about it all. I'm sure, now that it's over with she's a little peeved. I mean, EWWW!!!! We sprayed some Oust, clorox wiped what we could, she got me a new shirt for Maddox, and we continued on with the party. Okay, so you think it's all done now. NOPE!

As the kids are eating cake I went back to the playroom just to do another double take to make sure there were no more toys with poop on them. I found a lego toy and OMG it was on a white cloth bench under a toy!!!! Um, yeah, I couldn't get it out. It left a stain. This was probably one of the most embarrasing moments of my life I believe. All thanks to my terror of a 2 year old. I couldn't wait for that party to be over so I could high tail it out of there!

Maddox is 2!

Oh my, I've certainly slacked from my blogger responsibilites. This past month has just flown by and it seems like my daily schedule sends me in multiple directions a day.

Maddox celebrated his 2nd birthday last Friday and he is the Big 2! We had a family celebration for him up in Oklahoma a few weekends ago. He's such a big kid and I love watching him grow and learn. He's speaking 3-4 word sentences now and is definitly getting an attitude. Ah, the terrible two's they call it?! He is definitly a terror at times and will push your buttons.

Here's my cutie. I took these shots a few weeks ago back at my parents farm.
