Random observations

We had the opportunity to go to the school last night. Cannon was getting his very first SOTM award. He looks excited. Despite his overwhelming emotionless expression, He was actually quite pleased. On the inside.
This was the exact face he made through the entire ordeal. Not a single smile. Not one. I'm not real sure where the seriousness comes from. It must be the prof. I find I can blame most things on him.
On a different note,
I went out the other night.
I had a meeting or something to go to.
It was in the neighborhood.
I was gone about 1 hour.
I left my eldest in charge.
This is what I saw when I walked in the door.

My baby sound asleep on the couch.

An open jar of peanut butter between her legs.

A fork.

Peanut butter on everything, the couch, her hands, her hair, her diaper.

I had to ask myself

A. Wasn't somebody supposed to be watching her?

B. Do I dare wake her to give her a bath?

I opted for a baby wipe bath.

I reprimanded the children.

I wonder, do you think she loves peanut butter as much as me?

Glad to see that Claire is getting her protein. Tell her to try it with a banana next time.

I totally forgot to say that when I left she was also fully clothed.
I'm not sure what happens when I leave, but I'm pretty sure Claire loves it. Yes Kristy, leaving children in charge is bittersweet. I love not paying a sitter, or having to take them with me on the little errands. But I never know what to expect when I walk in the door.
