The shiny two-year old

I was washing my hands in my bathroom this evening and noticed that there was more Vaseline outside the bottle than in it on the counter. A nearby thermometer was gooey, and much of the counter was glistening. Hmmm... this had the look of Beth's doing.
Sure enough, Janell later explained that in the middle of nursing Hailey (things like this are always in the middle of nursing it seems), Beth appeared at the top of the stairs, looking a bit shinier than her continuously runny nose usually causes. Our friend, Melody, walked in the front door just at that moment and came to Janell's rescue. Beth happily showed Melody (aka "Auntie MomMom") where she had found the jar in our room, opened it, smeared it all over herself, assuming it was lotion!
This is why I go to work.

ps. THANK YOU, MELODY, for cleaning the slippery little stinker!

I guess I ought to introduce the cast before we go too far with this. My name is Scott. My incredible wife, Janell, and I have been married for a little over 10 years. We have 4 crazy little girls and 2 pretty mellow dogs. Our girls are Katelynn Joy (7), Emily Grace (5), Elizabeth ("Beth") Hope (2), and Hailey Faith (6 weeks). The dogs are Eli (9) and Abbey (5), both Golden Retrievers. I won't go into detail here... we'll let the story weave itself...

Here we go...

OK, I've never been a big blogging fan, but I thought this might be a fun way to share some of the crazy things our little angels come up with every day. We'll include stories, quotes, adventures, musings, and the occassional embarassing picture. The intent is have a place to share our lives with distant friends and family, but maybe we'll make some new friends along the way. Enjoy the show...
