My house smells like...

CHOCOLATE!! I was trying to do too many things at once (bake cookies, sew a diaper, check my email) earlier. So, the kids took advantage of the chaos and snuck into the cocoa powder that I left on the counter. The entire kitchen is brown. There are little brown footprints all through the house. The laundry room was left open, and the pile of CLEAN clothes, is now sprinkled in brown. Both kids need a bath (as well as a couple baby dolls). Why, do you ask, am I laughing about this and not tearing my hair out? Because... I figure it COULD be other aromatic brown stuff all over the house. Thankfully, it's just lovely chocolate!
Besides, how can you get mad at this?

Oh that is hilarious! That picture should be framed and hung in the kitchen! Way to be a laid back mama! I think I would have been so overwhelmed that I would have just laughed too! You know the kind of laugh a crazy person makes when they lose their mind? HAHA seriously though, that post gave me a good laugh this morning and the picture is adorable!

That picture is so cute! What chaos! I had a similar experience with my tots, but caught them before it was ALL over. Good luck getting it all cleaned up! What a great mommy-attitude :)
