Getting my attention

So I guess Payton has been getting jealous that I am constantly either feeding Madyson, holding her and just in general taking care of her. She has seemed to be making me laugh more and more by the things she does to get me to pay more attention, and I guess it's been working. A few examples...

I was sitting on the couch feeding Madyson, Payton walked up to me and asked if she could play salon. I of course said "yes". She had some "FAKE" scissors in her hand and a brush and like a little plastic blow dryer. She is cutting and combing away and about 5 minutes into it, I look at my shoulder and see hair that is no longer attached. I of course FREAK out. These were plastic scissors and I could not for the life of me figure it out, and still don't know how it happened. Payton just sat that there and told me "you look beautiful". To make a short story short, I had to do a lot of blending and evening up of the sides. It looks fine now....whew!!!

Payton makes HUGE messes in her room and she isn't allowed to have any kind of food in there, although I find smuggled hot dogs, GUM, cheese, fruit snacks and chips in her room daily. I walked into her and find pringles smashed in the carpet and her room looking like a tornado ripped through. I asked her to clean it, and come back to find her passed out in bed 5 minutes later. Here is the picture and her little head sticking out from under the covers.

The other day I went in the bathroom to wash my hands and couldn't find the purple towel that we use to dry off our hands. I asked Payton if she knew where it was. This was her response...

"It's in the toilet and I didn't put there so mom don't be mad" Ummm...what?

She then admitted to Mike that night that yes she did put it in the toilet. I'm still trying to figure out of she tried flushing it down because the toilet has not been acting itself lately.

She has been saying the funniest stuff lately too. I ask her to try and use the potty and she says "mom you got to be patient". So I have been throwing it back at her and when she asks for something and instead of her throwing a fit if I don't do it right when she wants it I ask her to be patient. She just laughs, much better than a tantrum.

We were at the store the other day and Madyson starts crying and REALLY loudly in line Payton says "she is really really hungry and needs to eat your booby". EVERYONE laughed, even the people in the next line over. I was almost crying it was too funny!

It's too late now so I should probably go get some sleep before Madyson wakes up. Sorry there are soo many updates. I will try and do monthly ones, if not weekly.

HA! I love the booby comment!

The smuggled food sounds all too familiar... although in our house, it's mostly cheese and blueberries!
