Carpet Cleaning... and Silly Kanyon

(day 191)

Argh. I wouldn't mind this so much except that we are leaving tomorrow for a week long trip to Chicago and my house was turned upside down the day before. I haven't even started packing and it's almost 10:30pm here... so I have a lot to do tonight and tomorrow morning. Just a couple of the spaces being cleaned.... the playroom was really fun. *sarcasm* My mudroom was filled to the brim with toys and notice how my chair is blocking my way to that and my laundry room. Kind of a necessity when you're getting ready to go out of town. ;)

Have to say, despite the pain it was, I'm glad it's over and I have a super clean house at the moment! :)

On to Kanyon...A recent funny about him is that whenever he's being whiny or extra sensitive and crying easily I tell him that if he isn't a "happy boy" then we don't get to do "(fill in the blank)". I ask if he's going to be a "happy boy" and to show me that yes, he is, he breaks out this cheese grin (at times in between sobs) to show me how happy he is. It looks something like this:
When he does this, I can't help but laugh and then it makes him laugh and seems to get him out of his whiny mood he's in. I doubt Scarlett will ever do this. She'd probably just scowl at me and tell me no. ;)

HaHa- Jacob has a "good boy face"- ours is "If you're being a good boy, then you can *insert desired activity/toy here*". Same face, every time. Hilarious!

Love K's beautiful smile!
