The other week (as in, last month sometime) I gave the boys juice in open cups during lunch. Zeke is actually quite accomplished at this, so it wasn't a big deal for him, but Deacon had never had one (without some help from me) and was THRILLED to be drinking on his own.
I think you can see why we didn't do that too often here. They really do make enough laundry as it is. However, we have continued practicing, and he is getting MUCH better about it. The pants usually make it out unscathed. Sadly, I cannot say the same for the shirts - poor dears. We'll get it though. If there's anything Deacon is, besides messy, it's persistent. Hmm...I wonder where he gets that from?
