Selah’s Shinnanigans or Why I’m Unsure About Having Another Girl

Instead of get upset about the many many things that Selah seems to get into lately… I’ve decided to chronicle them for humors sake. Kind of like my friend Allison’s List. And, on that note, must say that Selah has spent her fair share of time dipping the boy’s toothbrushes, cups and anything else in the (usually not flushed) toilet. (Don’t worry… not going to take a pic of those times!

Smooshed Stick O Butter
Yesterday, I discovered this on the play room floor. This is probably the 3rd or 4th stick of butter Selah has completely demolished. You’d think I’d have learned by now. But darn it all if that girl doesn’t get smarter every day (and apparently I don’t… ha ha!) Her determination is unmatched by anyone I know…

The Granola Spill
Then this morning as I was sitting there drinking my tea… and not paying close enough attention, Selah grabbed her little chair and stepped right up to the counter where the container of granola was sitting and gleefully dumped it all over the floor! It is not cheap, so I tried to save the parts that weren’t touching the floor. At least I had just mopped yesterday! And of course I had just mopped yesterday! As you can see… she decided to come back with a tool when I went to shoot the pic.
A funny side story… Kev came up to have a bowl of granola right after this happened. I contemplated telling him what had just happened, but decided to let him eat his granola in peace. He just now saw the pic and asked what it was all about… so I told him, then I told him he ate his granola after the fact. He says he’s gonna get me back… hee hee hee…

The Mini Monkey
When I ran to grab the camera for this shot, Selah was actually casually sitting on the top of her changing table, amidst the wipes she had ripped up and strewn everywhere. By the time I got back, she was crawling down. She is a fast little monkey! Also, it’s highly appropriate that her pajamas have little monkeys on them. I find the wipes here and there around the house on a regular basis…

That is it for now… we’ll see what shinnanigans next week brings us! Stay tuned!

  1. Ella has those same pajamas! I don’t think she lives up to them quite as well as Selah does. Not yet. May your next girl be docile and lady-like. If you can stand it. πŸ™‚

  2. Peanut has a thing for wipes too. I just don’t understand but she like to wipe her nose with them! And I find them all over the house too. Though she just recently started climbing I think I’m in for it!

  3. Wow! She IS a handful! Thomas does the same thing withe the wipes, however has a tendency to take them out so he wipe down things – TV screen, furniture, couch!

  4. LOL. Being a mom of 3 boys and 2 girls. I feel your pain. But, hey… they grow up,…eventually. Mine did and they have tales to tell.

  5. What is it with little ones and wipes?? Mine all did it too. And The Princess is really quick, I can walk away for 2 seconds and come back and she has emptied an entire container! What is the obsession with the butter?
    And I love the granola story, thats awesome πŸ™‚
