Mischief by Sam part 1

Sam keeps me on my toes--I don't know how else to start this post. He is curious and mischievous and can get into things he's not supposed to in a minute (or less). Never take your eyes off Sam.

So, I have had the idea for this post for months now. I wanted to show pictures of some of the crazy messes Sam makes, but just when I think I have enough material to write it, something else happens. So that is why this is titled part 1. I'm sure there will be more to come.

This is the most recent:
He dumped parsley and other fun things in our simmering dinner. Luckily the parsley came out easily.

I have so many pictures like this, it happens a lot:

Emptying drawers, totes, storage containers, bins, shelves is what he does best.

Daily occurrence:

This was after opening Christmas presents. He liked the styrofoam better:

This is why I hate toothpaste and this is why we have to hide our toothpaste (this has happened so many times!):

I even need a lock on my spice cupboard:

Look at that face. How could you be mad?

Other things locked up in our house--markers and paint:

Sam's favorite thing in the kitchen is the dishwasher. He likes to add things to it:
(I wish I had a picture of the cupcake smashed in the soap cup.)

He uses it like a step stool:

Things he also uses as step stools. 1. The toilet:
Just sitting in the sink poking holes in dad's deodorant.

2. Drawers.

3. An actual step stool.

Just eating Nutella with a spoon while nobody is looking.

The thing I can't seem to keep away from Sam no matter how hard I try is mascara. (See previous post.)

You can't really tell in this picture, but not only did he get mascara all over the light switch and his face and hands, but he unraveled the floss (another thing he LOVES to do!), took stuff out of the drawer, and dumped some of my moisturizer on the counter (you can see the open pink bottle by his foot)

After Sam put makeup on his face and looked at himself in the mirror, I think he loved what he saw because for the next few minutes he admired himself in the mirror.
Seriously, sometimes it's hard to get mad at him because of his sweet innocent face.

I am not even joking, but just as I was about to publish this I heard the sound of shattering glass in my kitchen. Sam just broke a picture frame. Like I said, never take your eyes off Sam.
