Are We 2 Yet?

I heard gear grinding noises and then the fated, "uh-oh!"
So I walked over to find that the dvd tray would not retract, and in fact would make a horrible grinding noise in attempting to retract. So I grabbed a flashlight and peeked inside to see the slightest hump of a orange crayon. Grr.

Then I grabbed a paintbrush and pencil and shoved them in there to see if I could coax it out, which of course only shoved the crayon further back. (Which is probably why your not supposed to stick your fingers down your kid's throat if they are choking.. good to remember)

So I whipped out my mini tool kit and opened the sucker up! Crayon retrieval was successful. And so was screwing the dvd player back together.

Trouble maker.

I really couldn't help but think, "Isn't stuff like this supposed to happen after they turn into devils at age 2?"
Maybe it is just the moms who turn into crazy yelling idiots at age 2, because I was pretty livid at this discovery. Next time I will have to practice keeping my cool.

Your momma skins are awesome! No worries, we all need to work on our patience. We can do it! Just say no to Orange crayons and dvd players!

oh save your cool for age is much worse then 2 because they do all these things much more deliberately.

Awesome, don't worry Elijah once jammed a peanut butter and jelly sandwich into our VCR. So be grateful that the DVD players have smaller spaces for them to be creative with.
