want to guess what this is?

Yep! That would be the leftovers of two of Mikayla's presents that suspiciously were opened this morning. And it's not Christmas morning.

While I was cleaning up after breakfast and Ryan was getting ready, the kids were "quietly playing". Of course that always raises a red flag when I can't hear what they are doing and there is no fussing going on. I went back to my bedroom and the door was locked, so I used the key to open it and what do I find? My sweet darling daughter holding her package of Dora blocks in her hand and saying, "I like it."

I froze. In confusion. Didn't I just wrap that last night? And wasn't it hidden? Then I saw the wrapping paper remnants and another present that had been opened. Through tears (hers, not mine, although I was close) I tried explaining to her that these are NOT her toys (sorry, I had to lie) and that she shouldn't open presents that are wrapped. (She did say at one point that Austin did it, but I'm sure they both had a hand in it.) After composing herself, all of the sudden she said "Happy Birthday everybody!" Awww, isn't that just like a two-year old to turn a frustrated mommy to laughter?

And, yes, I will re-wrap the presents (in different paper) and put them up higher this time. These 2 presents were supposed to be from Santa, so we'll see how I can make that work now.

I bet you're glad this isn't a post about the "surprise" we found in Austin's crib when he woke up this morning. Let's just say we had to do a load of wash and despite having a bath last night, he needed another one this morning. Yuck.

Yikes!! Never a dull moment, huh? It makes a great story though!
