This kid, I tell ya!  He's a handful.  And that's an understatement.

We're just a week into summer break and I'm already exhausted.  Don't get me wrong - I'm loving my extra time with the B-Man, but I'm constantly chasing him, pulling him from things he shouldn't be playing with, and telling him "No no, Brantley!"  I would not be surprised if I were to lose 10 pounds this summer.  Want to go on a diet?  Come borrow my baby for a week!

Among his most recent favorites: unrolling the toilet paper, removing all the ziploc baggies from the bottom drawer (they've been moved until Daddy installs drawer locks), climbing on the fireplace hearth, pounding on the window screens, digging in the plant dirt, and playing with the remote/laptop/coasters.

And longtime favorites: getting into the dog bowl, climbing on the dishwasher, playing with (and in) the oven drawer, taking diapers out of the diaper caddy, stealing Kinnick's dog bone, climbing the stairs, playing with cords, and removing air vents.

Never mind the abundance of toys this kid has - he'd rather play with everything he isn't supposed to!  And he knows, too.  He gives us this look - a rather ornery look - that says "Haha I know I'm not supposed to do this...come and get me."  Like when he climbs the stairs, for instance, he climbs onto the landing, waits for us to come after him, then darts up the stairs.  Ornery little you-know-what.

He's all boy, that's for sure!  We seem to have our hands full!
