Owen and the Pregnant Mama

We are getting guttering put on our house as well as getting some siding repaired today. The men working on our house apparently left for more materials or a break?? I did not know as we came home to two very large and high ladders in our backyard (as well as a nest of baby birds on our patio table, only one alive, thanks guttering guys =() and no men working. Owen fell asleep in the car ride home so I just laid him down in his room. Claire is dozing off on the couch..all is quiet and well in the Brown home...so I thought. I am working (read checking all my favorite blogs) when Claire calmly yells at me "Mama, Owen is outside climbing the ladder". It took me a second and then I jump up and run across the house to the back door to see my 2½ year old to the very top of this VERY tall ladder!!! The same 2½ year old that was supposed to be asleep upstairs and I never heard go outside (I did hear Cooper and Oscar at the door wanting to go outside and what I thought was Claire letting them out). I have to climb this stupid ladder and drag Owen off of the very top rung, me, very pregnant, Rachel that has a hard time carrying Owen at all. Of course he was screaming and furious with me...I was soooooo stressed out!!! Good times...

Owen loves flip flops, but only one pair (even though we have bought him many super cute pairs) that used to be Claire's that I think were actually boys that my grandmother got her last year. She wore them to the lake and dirty places like that...you know me, this should not surprise you. Well, O found them a couple weeks ago and we have to hide them from him as he can barely walk in him and he wears them like this...
We laugh at him, but you know it has to hurt his little feet, but he does not care! He insists on wearing them.
Hope you had a good day!!!

Oh no. He should have came down to meet you at least half way, but I guess he couldn't get down.

I totally know what you're saying about the flip flops. My brother has several pairs of blue jeans, but he only likes and wears four pairs(maybe).

OMG - The ladder story and the flip flops... both HILARIOUS!! How on earth did he get all the way outside w/o you knowing?! That is so something Jonah would do as well, esp since he just learned how to open our door knobs a few weeks ago. He was a late learner with the opening doors thing, and I was very thankful for that!! LOL

OMG I am still laughing at the flip flops and his little toes all sprawled out. SO FUNNY!!!

I know it was super scary when it happened, but what a great story to tell later. Owen is so funny - When he gets hooked on something he wont let it go.
