Blueberry Season

The girls and I went to a local farm to pick blueberries the other day. We picked quite a few .. but Mommy put Kaelin in charge of carrying the basket, By the time we brought our stash to the cashier, we only had $1.00 worth of blueberries and a sneaky kid with a blue stained mouth.
Reese was very pleased with her blueberry picking skills. (and yes, she wore her crown to the farm.. don't you?)

Here comes trouble

Elizabeth caught this moment between Reese and her son, Noah, at a playgroup today. Apparently Kaelin isn't the only boy crazy one.

Kaelin makes me wonder ...

Due to her odd antics, I'm starting to believe that I should rethink my stance on medicating children ...
(The look on her face at the end cracks me up though)

Please excuse shirtless Reesey running through the frame .. she's into being naked right now.
I have a ton of photos of her streaking through the yard .. swinging naked .. dancing naked .. but I'll control myself and not embarrass her too much. I WILL, however, post one from a playgroup this morning ...

Right when my attention is focused elsewhere ..
There she is .. waving like a beauty queen, half out of her dress with her bloomers on the floor...

I'm going to start duct taping her into her clothing.

My little clepto ..

We all went out to eat a few days ago .. Reesey loaded up her purse with the necessities (play money, a plastic hippo, a couple toy cars, and a small falshlight .. ya know, the stuff you can't leave home without). As we were leaving lunch, I noticed that the hippo had been left behind, so I grabbed it and put it in my bag.
We headed to the bookstore form there. The girls were looking around while I followed behind. Every so often I would find a plastic coin of Reese's ... or a car .. She was leaving a trail of toys in her wake.
I put them all in my bag figuring at some point she would look in her purse and and get upset that it was empty .. thus giving me the opening for the, "You have to take care of your things" speech.

I forgot all about it .. until after the girls were in bed that night. As I was cleaning up, I picked up the purse and noticed that it felt heavy. Odd considering everything that she had stuffed in there that morning was now in my bag.
I opened it and discovered that she wasn't being forgetful by leaving her toys behind ... Apparently, it was all part of the master plan.
Each time she had taken one of her toys out it was for the purpose of creating space for new stuff.

In her purse I found:

Three packets of Sweet -n- Low
The pen I had signed the bill with at the restaurant
A flower
a small rubber ball
and the rice sticker from a book.


Do they have those "Scared Straight" programs for toddlers?
