Mischievous. It's such a cute word, like you're talking about a little imp. Oh, my Katie, she is so MISCHIEVOUS lately!
Yes, it's adorable. Just (insert your own expletive) adorable.
Every morning I put on Max and Ruby, which used to guarantee the girls would sit glued to the television, and race upstairs to get dressed. Literally ALL I'm doing is putting my clothes on. I shower before I get the girls out of their cribs, I put my makeup on downstairs. I pretty much let my hair air dry and just use the straightening iron on it very quickly so I don't look completely insane. I take five minutes to get dressed (and trust me, it shows....). And in those five minutes Katie has found the time to be so so so MISCHIEVOUS.
For awhile now she has been very into the freezer. We have a fridge with the freezer on the bottom and it was far too tempting for her to stay out of. She would get ice cubes, which was not too bad. Then I found her sitting with a box of fish sticks. Not great. Once she took the can of frozen grease drippings and was trying to scrape some out with her fingernails... ok, gross. Then she found the ice cream and it was all over. Every morning (and honestly, any moment she could sneak out there) she would grab the ice cream and sit on the floor eating it out of the container with her grubby little fingers. And when I'd walk in and catch her she'd say "Ice cream! YUM YUM!" Well it is (as opposed to GREASE), but still... stay out of the freezer!
She drew all over my dining room tablecloth with ball point pen. She loves ball point pen. She also likes to draw on her feet. And on Charlotte.
She went into my breakfront and found a candy dish - with candy in it from last Christmas - and graciously shared all the year old Andes Candies with Charlotte. Mmm, a nice big chocolatey mess.
She figured out how to hit the 'copy' button on our printer and made about 100 copies of a letter I'd left on the scanner.
She climbed up on a chair to reach our thermostat and turned our heat up to 74 degrees.
Today though, today was her masterpiece in mischievousness.
Today she climbed up on the dining room table and got my makeup bag.
I guess I need to take them upstairs with me when I get dressed.
(Just have to mention again... TOY DRIVE TIME! There will be frequent annoying reminders. :)
