How to Climb Out of Your Crib as taught by Easton Thompson

If you want to ensure that the bedtime process now takes a mere 2 hours to complete and naptime is near non-existent unless locked into the bedroom, please follow the subsequent steps. Step 1. Gracefully lift the left leg onto the crib bar making sure the foot is pointed and a mischievous smile is on face.
Step 2. While maintaining a mischievous smile, lift body onto the crib bar using the right arm to maintain balance.
Step 3. Continue the mischievous smile while carefully lifting the right leg onto the top of the crib bar and dangling the left leg over the edge making sure to maintain precise balance.
Step 4. Now slowly fling body completely over the front of the crib and lower to the floor.

Step 5. Finish with a happy dance! You have done it once again. Bedtime will never be the same.

A Little Behind

Well, as you may have noticed I have not been blogging for awhile. I have received a few complaints about my lack of posts and I would like to apologize. I have been in Europe the last few weeks and just didn't have a chance to post anything. Actually- not true. I don't really have an excuse as to why I have been missing other than I just simply have not had the time. Lame-I know. I would like to catch up a bit by first honoring the men in my life whom I failed to mention on Father's Day.
First off- my husband. I love this picture of us because it truly captures our relationship. Clint is a very funny person and he is always making me laugh. I love to laugh and to be married to someone as quick witted as he is makes me happy. My Dad. You couldn't ask for a better dad than mine. He is a great man who has always been such an example to me. My dad is very thoughtful, patient and funny. He is constantly making those around him laugh by the funny things he says. He is very intelligent and such a good handyman because he can figure out how to do anything . I know I can always count on my dad. Plus he is an exceptional Grandpa. Easton loves his Grandpa Bob because he gets spoiled with treats and attention. Grandpa can play in the dirt with Easton for hours. My Father-In-Law. I am grateful for Mark and the manner in which he has raised his four son's. He is such a hard worker and never ceases to help others. He often gives of his time and means to ensure others are provided for. He is a great man whom I am fortunate enough to also have in my life. Easton loves Grandpa Mark because he takes him on tractor rides, wheel barrow rides and wagon rides. He knows he can count on Grandpa to take him outside and play with him.
