Cheerio Fiasco

On the mornings that I am in charge of the boys, I have a basic routine. This routine involves me serving the boys breakfast at their table then going to pick out their clothes for the day and grabbing diapers and such. That way I can change and dress them as I clean them up from breakfast. Apparently during the 3-4 minutes I was gone they decided that they needed more cereal. Being the independent, helpful boys that they are, they got it themselves. Looks like it may be time to change my routine...

Dexter was picking each piece of cereal up and putting it back in the box, Simon was shoveling the evidence into his mouth by the double fist fulls and Linus fled the scene of the crime.

 Dexter: "1, 2, 3, 4..."
Simon; "Ooh, look, a hat!"
Linus: "What cereal? I'm just over here eating yogurt like a good boy."

 I'm *that* mom, so I made them help me clean up. 

Them swinging the brooms like golf clubs was *extra* helpful. How else could I have gotten all that cereal under the fridge and the stove?

Linus: "Ooh, look, a hat!

That is too cute! My wife's younger brothers are twins and my mother in law has a similar photo with just 2 boys and a huge mess of cheerios all over the kitchen floor. :) Now those "boys" are 27 and one has two boys of his own.

I, too, like the documentary with commentary approach. I bet you have more hilarious stories to tell in this format.

Jimmy Choo Handbag has found their way into a wide area of everyday life. They are applied in big supermarkets, ordinary shops, small stores and street markets. People put in plastic bags everything they buy. They need to carry Jimmy Choo Bag, leather bags or Jimmy Choo Outlet with them when go shopping. Obviously it is very convenient for plastic bags to be used in people’s everyday life. Link: http://www.jimmychoobagssales.com/

Am not on Facebook, but do check your posts there: happy belated birthday for your threesome! Still as handsome and cute as in the beginning - to be honest, I still don't know how you two manage, but as I cannot imagine not checking in on how they re doing, I do have an inkling about how much you must love them!!
Greetings from Belgium,
