Claiming his territory...

Well, we finally moved. HALLELUJAH. I'll post on that later.

For now, I'll leave you with this little treat.


Whilst unpacking the never ending boxes, I realized Kaden was in his new room with the door shut, being awfully quiet. This raises suspicions in the mommy of a boy.

So I paused my monotonous task and peeked into his little room. Instantly, my eyes teared up and my nose burned from the fumes. Kaden, standing on his new big-boy-bed, stepped aside and happily revealed his masterpiece.

"wook momma, puupple!"

Seeing and smelling the permanent marker in his grimy, fat fist, I slowly said, "no buddy, that isn't purple, it's black. It is naughty to write on the wall."

"uh oh.." was all he said. I whimp-ishly slapped his little hand and firmly said "No."

Seeing mommy seemed sad, or upset, or some undesirable emotion, my little man said, "awwwww momma, I saawwy, come on." He embraced my head in his arms and gave me a sweet hug, kiss, and patted my back, saying, "awwww...'sokay momma".

How can you get mad at that?

You can't. You just can't.

Awww, that is so sweet! I mean, what a naughty little boy! But, what a sweetie to realize he upset you but wanted you to know he was sorry and he felt bad. Nathan does that sometimes when I get mad. He says "Don't get mad mom, be happy!". Hopefully you can cover that up with some touch-up paint.
But, on the bright side, you're finally in your house! Congrats!! And enjoy!!
