Weekly Photo Challenge – Purple – Gray

Today’s picture is of my very happy and very curious son Gray. Not only is he a love, looking for hugs, kisses, and cuddles; he transforms into a smiley, mischievous monster as he explores the world around him.

Family and friends stay glued to my wife’s Facebook status updates with all the mischief he gets into. At 2 he is already figuring out fun things like operating the espresso machine, the microwave, how to crack a dozen eggs on the kitchen floor, how to draw pretty designs in permanent marker on the tables, walls, and furniture, and how to pump out a full container of Starbucks syrup with dedication and resolve. haha.

Just the other night, while I answered the front door and talked to my neighbour for a couple of minutes, Gray found a permanent marker(how does he keep finding them???), went into the bathroom and drew all over the bathroom counter and sink, went into the kitchen and did the same on our antique table, and started on my wife’s Macbook trackpad, then peed on the floor. “Fun”, he said.

While I tried to do some damage control, he found a jar of diaper cream, stuck his hand all the way in it, then ran for it. In the panic to deal with his mess, I had forgot to lock the front door, and he made off like a bat out of hell! He was free! I got him running full tilt into the driveway.

No wonder my wife wants to go out shopping every evening when I get home! lol
