Weekend

So, on Saturday we put Eva down for a nap...

I start cleaning the bathroom.

Michael said he was going to work on some computer/music something ... he headed downstairs.


I was removing the hairspray bottle from the toilet... Eva likes stashing all the things she throws from under the sink there for safe keeping

when I hear "KERTUNKA GRIND KERTUNKA GRIND" reverberating through the duct work and vibrating the floors and the walls.

"HELLO... what the H-E-double hockeysticks is he doing?!?!" I scream silently in my head...

You scream silently when there is a baby sleeping.
Anyone could tell you that making extremely loud, house-shaking noises could change that!
It is quiet...

then a mutter and whine from the baby's room.  Crap.

I am now standing perfectly still... fingers crossed... not breathing.

Wet hairspray bottle in hand, dripping on the floor and getting my toes wet.

We are quiet again...

I exhale.

KERTUNKA GRIND KERTUNKA GRIND KERTUNKA GRIND KERTUNKA GRIND

KERTUNKA GRIND KERTUNKA GRINDKERTUNKA GRIND KERTUNKA GRIND

Then...

waahhh, waahh, WAHHH WAHHH

KERTUNKA GRIND KERTUNKA GRIND KERTUNKA GRIND KERTUNKA GRIND

WAHHH WAHHH WAHHH WAHHHWAHHH WAHHH

KERTUNKA GRIND WAHHHWAHHH KERTUNKA GRIND WAHHHWAHHH

Monster awake... arrrgghhh

I wash my hands...
(you know I didn't wash my toes... gross)
Get the monster from her crib.
She is smiling.

KERTUNKA GRIND KERTUNKA GRIND KERTUNKA GRIND

I head down the stairs to see what my smart, incredible educated husband is doing.

We meet at the bottom of the stairs.
We speak at the same time:

Me: "What are you DOING?"
Him: "She is awake?"

Again... in unison:

Me: "Well yeah!"
Him: "I'm drilling."

Me: "What are you drilling?"
Him: "Was it that loud?"

Him: "A hole in the floor."

What?!?!

Eva-monster is laughing at us.

*Later that day*

Monster and daddy played peek-a-boo through the cat door.
 He was repairing the TV cable line he drilled through during nap time.
He also had to re-drilling a larger hole - the first one was too small.
The bathroom is still a wreck.

Josh does that. It drives me crazy!! His favorite time to drill or hammer or whatever is after Teagan has gone to bed and then doesn't realize why I get upset. Sometimes I wonder about these daddy's ;-)
I love the little "cat door" though! Peek-a-boo with Daddy is always fun!
