a Baby, a Rock and a Great Big Mess

A list of all the places Calvin's nose gushed blood on his mad dash to find me after having the above pictured rock chucked at his face by sweet, loveable, rocket arm-ed Emmett while I was in the shower this morning:

The tan couch cushion he was sitting on.


All over his shirt, shorts, hair, face, legs...it was bad.

The basement carpet.

8 of the 14 carpeted stairs.

The entry-way wood floor.

The light blue front bathroom mat.

The light blue front bathroom towel.

My bedroom door.


My bedroom carpet.

My bathroom floor.

And finally, in the shower, where he found me, hopped in, and spent the next 15 minutes until we got it under control.

And why do we have a rock in the house that the baby who throws everything in sight could get his hands on? Big sister Azure has at least 6 fake cell phones. She is obsessed with them. {You may remember that she hired a manager a couple years back that she chatted with constantly.} Even with her overabundance of sparkly, beeping, pink plastic phones, she has toted this rock around in her purse for the last 2 years to use as cell phone #7.

She must have left her purse out. Mom had been out of sight for a whole two minutes. And you know the rest. Happy Thursday!

Oh Cumorah! I shouldn't have been smiling as I read your post, I can only imagine....but when you look at him he just looks so, innocent. I know a good carpet cleaner if you need help with all the stains.

Hi Cumorah,


Sorry for contacting you through your comments section but I couldn't find an email address on your blog. We found your blog and thought you would enjoy our new website www.MommyGiggles.com.

Mommy Giggles is a site where moms submit funny pictures to share with other moms to get a giggle out of. They can either be pictures of their kids or of other hilarious “mommy moments”

We are contacting you to see if you have a funny picture that we could post – we would of course give you the credit, and also post your blog (if you want). There is also a $25 Amazon Gift card drawing to everyone who submits a photo each month.

We also would appreciate if you could spread the word about our site to other moms too!

We hope you will get a “giggle” out of our site.

Warmest Regards,

Heather Matthews & Heidi Werry
