To say that my sweet, big hearted 4-year-old has been a hand-full lately would be an understatement. He’s ever so independent and free-thinking and has boundless amounts of energy, which are wonderful, wonderful qualities that I aspire him to have as an adult, but it sure does keep me on my toes right now.
He recruits his favorite 2-year-old understudy often to test waters and do some of his “dirty” work. He’s a smart one, this guy!
The other day this duo found the hair clips and Jackson decided that he needed to decorate his sister to make her glamorous. He put every clip he could find in her hair. And then he discovered a rare bit of makeup, took it and Izzy into the second bathroom and closed the door. Every mama I know dreads that 5-10 minutes of silence and that seems ever so nice and peaceful until you realize that it’s too good to be true. Since this mama rarely wears any makeup at all, the kids had no idea what to do with the stuff. All that was done was a mascara mustache on Jackson, which was pretty darn cute, if I do say so myself.
