This is one I'm gonna love telling John and Jessi when they're older. Last night Charlie and I were in the living room relaxing. I knew that John and Jessi were in the girls room playing. I should have known better. It was quiet for too long. I heard a small thump and decided to go back and check it out.
What I walked in on really shouldn't have been a surprise and I couldn't help but chuckle. Tabytha was given a cupcake maker for Christmas. It came with everything you'd need to make about a dozen cupcakes (powdered cupcake mix and powdered icing mix). John had gotten it out of the closet and decided to open a couple packets and pour them over the baby and sprinkle them all over the floor around them. Jessi was completely covered in powdered cupcake mix and just sitting there playing so nicely while John was making a big mess.
I called Charlie back to the room to see and he chuckled at it, too. Charlie stayed back in the room while I got the vacuum. He picked up Jessi and I vacuumed most of the powdered cupcake mix off of her and off of John. Charlie took the kids and put them in the bathtub to get them cleaned up while I cleaned up the mess in the girls room.
I only wish I'd have gotten a picture of the kids before they got cleaned up in the tub. I have a feeling this is just the beginning of the things to come with John and Jessi. I have a bad feeling that wherever John is getting in trouble, I'll find Jessi there, too, mostly as an 'innocent' bystander, but none the less, there in the midst of it.
