I've been posting on Myspace the last few months, but I'm back!

I have been posting everything on MySpace, but for simplicity's sake, and the fact that many don't use MySpace, I will also post here. Here are my last two posts on Myspace:

Tonight while Tone and I were making dinner, Hunter was playing with a diaper box which came from Costco. It is tall, narrow and comes up to his chest (about 1x2x3'). Ainsley was playing the floor. He was pushing the box around the room (open end up) and I saw (out of the corner of my eye) him pushing the box in front of where Ainsley was. She had been making happy sounds, but I heard her complaining noise when he did that. I told Hunter to move the box away from her. She often makes this noise if he gets too close. He wouldn't do it, but kept saying, "but, but, but, Mommy!" as if he was going to argue with me. Finally after the third time of telling him to move the box, I got mad and went over to move the box away from her. When I got up close, I could see into the box. Ainsley was IN IT on her tummy looking up at me and complaining. She just barely fit down in the bottom. How he got her in there still beats me since the top of the box is level with his chest. I'm not sure if she crawled into it and he tipped the box up or what......I almost peed my pants I was laughing so hard. Tone was cracking up too, but at least he could speak to tell Hunter to go to his room so that we could regain some control. Ainsley was fine, just mad until I got her out.

Hunter's propensity to put things in other things has gotten him in big trouble. He loves to stick objects into containers and then forgets all about them. The biggest trouble was today. Tone couldn't find his badge with his ID, medical certificate and pilot's license in it today. After tearing the house apart and a fruitless trip across town to the last place he had it out, he admitted defeat and had to be taken off his trip. An hour later, I found it. Hunter thought it would be cool to stick it in a graham cracker box.
