It Doesn't Get Better Than This...

Last week, I had one of those magical mommy moments where you know something has just happened that you won't forget for a long time and that you will probably retell for years to come. This is one of those incidents that true motherhood is made of.
We had just finished making our candy corn turkey cookies for Thanksgiving when I walked out of the room for a moment. Suddenly, I was experiencing the ominous quietness that any mother of small children will immediately recognize. So, I quickly walked back into the room to discover B and T still standing at the counter where we had made our cookies. B immediately started giggling hysterically, which I realized was prompted by the fact that she knew her brother had just done something very wrong and very funny.
He had rubbed gobs of butter in his hair. I mean tons. In fact, I was able to watch his open fist grab out another handful and smooth it on top before I could stop him.
Wow. I was pretty floored, as this had to be one of the best stunts yet. I couldn't do anything but laugh, and wonder why in the WORLD that had seemed like a good idea. But, the two of them were so ridiculously cute and absolutely in stitches over it that I couldn't help but grab the camera before I began the clean-up which was rather extensive.
It was all rather hilarious and rather greasy for that matter...but after a good impromptu mid-day bath T was as good as new. And, he definitely didn't need any conditioner. :)


  1. That was a great mommy moment. I'm so glad you shared that with us. I literally laughed out loud! And, I'm glad you grabbed your camera before starting to clean up!

  2. Let me know how the butter works as conditioner!
