Oh Boy, Oh Boy!

IMG_1962

Good Saturday morning, peeps!

I hope you are all having a wonderful weekend so far. For today, I've got this card for two challenges:

1. Copic Creations - Landscape Design.

2. Deconstructing Jen - Sketch 13.

I think i overdid it on the clouds a l'il bit... got a little heavy-handed with the ink. But overall, I really like how the card came out. From his sun-tanned face... to those plant stickers that remind me of ponds!

I used Tobie and Buddie from Some Odd Girl. Oh, isn't Tiny Tobie the cutest??!!! He reminds me a little bit of my tater tot and how, in the near future, he'll probably be bringing me lots of critters and dead birds! YIKES!

Which reminds me of a funny story... *warning!* Grossness factor alert!!! (don't say I didn't warn you!).

Mattie looooves to pick things off the floor. Lint, a piece of food, a scrap of paper. He gives them to us to throw away, and we proudly dubbed him our 'clean' boy because he was helping keep the house neat!

Well, one day, I was in the office/ craft room with him. I was on the computer when he brought me this little brown lump. I didn't recognize it at first but then I got a whiff. EEEEEWWWWWWWW!! It was his poop!!!! I glanced at the floor and saw that there was a trail -- I guess his diaper had gotten loose and these little things had fallen out!!!! Of course, i screamed! I probably even cursed!! Then, proceeded to scoop those *gag* balls and washed our hands! Clean boy, my butt!!!! Buwahahahaha!!

I hope this did not cause you to vomit :). Heeeeheeeheee. Oh, the joys of being mama to boys!

OMG! But you know what? It happens to all of us. One time, we noticed white flakes on the floor... then we realized - J's diaper exploded the absorbent stuff IN the diaper. YUCK!

Love the card, mama! I love how you colored him - I'm going to have to pick him up from SOG! :)

LOL! He still is the clean boy because at least he didn't put it in his mouth! (that bit of grossness was payback!) ;)
