The best laid plans . . .

So, I decided I could do it finally: Make a meal from scratch (albeit a very simple one with very few dishes) and have a new couple and their kids over. It would be the FIRST time I cooked everything and had a whole family over. I was left with one kid, David, while Gavin took the others away so I could focus on getting ready. David was still proving a little bit needy, so I put a show on for him in Isaac's room, on Isaac's bed. He couldn't get into much trouble there, right?

This is what Gavin found when he got back:

Oh my. David found the kids' toothpaste in Isaac's room (because Isaac left it there when brushing his teeth the night before). He managed to get toothpaste all over the tablet he was watching the show on, all over the bed, and all over himself. Thankfully, little to no toothpaste actually make it INTO his mouth, although he was clearly flirting with the idea. We caught him with it raised to his lips, and you can see the proof on his chin!

We laughed it off and cleaned it up later. We also had a great time with our company, even though the kids seemed to be in rare form like they were showing off how crazy they could get! It was fun nevertheless. The family has a great sense of humor and just watched, laughed, and helped out as needed. Their six-year-old son was obviously overwhelmed, however. :o]
