We really should have known better. We really should not have allowed the silence to go on as long as it did.
After a day filled with swimming lessons, work, and church, all Scott and I wanted to do was have a few moments to relax. You know, go through the mail, read some email, maybe watch a little tv.
Emily was taking a shower (NOT a bath!) and the boys were playing quietly in their bedroom.
After Emily got out of the shower, she asked if the boys were asleep. I told her they were still awake, and that she could go play with them in their room.
She opens their door and out comes this sweet smelling little person with white hair, white eyebrows, and white skin. He was reminiscent of Casper, the friendly ghost.
Uh oh… This ain’t good.
Rest time was over. Scott and I had to go check this out.
The room was covered in a layer of — can you guess? — baby powder! Timothy had had a blast emptying a fairly new bottle of baby powder not only all over his brother but also over all their toys.
After shaking out the toys, running the vacuum, and giving the boys a bath, everything has returned to its regular color.
As an added benefit, the room smells great.
