Will is full of vinegar sometimes. One morning he insisted that I paint my toe nails blue. It was 8 am and I didn't really care to paint my nails, but he kept asking me to paint my nails. So, I painted my toe nails blue and leaft the nail polish on the kitchen table. I knew I should've put it away in the bathroom, but I was getting the boys breakfast and thought it would be fine on the table for a little while.

A couple of hours later, I'm talking to Richie on the phone and I see Xav smearing blue nail polish all over the kitchen tile and Will standing there with the nail polish brush in his hand. Will had painted himself, Xav's face, the kitchen chair and the tile blue! What a mess! I asked Will if he knew he was being naughty when he painted Xav's face and he said yes. What a stinker! I put both boys in the tub and started wiping off Xav's face with actone, then baby wash. I felt so bad for Xav because his little eyes were watering, but I didn't know how else to get the nail polish off. I got the nail polish off both boys, and when I went back to clean up the kitchen, the polish had completely dried on the wooden chair.  I really wish I just would've put the nail polish away right after I used it that morning.

Will is very determined. We were outside playing and he wanted to turn on the water spigot. I told him we weren't playing with water. He whined for a little while, but I just kept telling him that I didn't want he and Xav to get all wet.  We all went inside and I laid Xavy down for a nap. When I came out of Xav's room, I  couldn't find Will anywhere in the house. I look outside and he had pushed the kitchen bar stool off the deck, so he could stand on it to reach the spigot. He still couldn't quite reach it. This kid will try and try until he succeeds!

Will loves to play in baby powder. I've told him he can't play in the baby powder because it's for Xav and it makes a big mess all over. Will doesn't listen very well...

I had used the baby powder on Xav and left it on Xav's night stand. I went in to the kitchen to get dinner ready and went back into Xav's room to check on the boys because they were being quiet and I found Xav and his room covered in powder! I asked Will what I can do to remind him not to play in the baby powder and he simply said, "Hide it."  He is such a funny kid!

A few days later I was getting the boys ready to go to the wedding reception. The plan was to pick Jeff up from work, grab some dinner and head down to the reception in Pleasant Grove. I had just gotten the boys out of the bath tub, and Xav was dressed in his nice clothes. I went in my bathroom to finish getting ready and come out to the living room to a big powder mess! Will had covered himself, Xav, the TV, the Playstation and the speakers in powder. I was furious! I had to re-bathe both boys. I was in such a flurry trying to get out the door on time that I forgot to bring Jeff some dress clothes for the reception. We were lucky to get out the door at all.
