Resourceful 2-Year Old

I had to devote a post to my Leora in honor of her determination to get into mischief...

(Luckily the last occupant had flushed the toilet!)

A couple months ago she discovered that the little chairs that came with our little Disney Princess table can easily serve the alternative purpose as a stepping stool! This has enabled her to get into all sorts of trouble, although luckily never anything harmful...

("washing" the dishes)

My kids are unfortunately often picky eaters, so we try to supplement their less-than-satisfactory diet with Carnation Instant Breakfast drinks. As you can see, Leora utilized her chair trick to dump and mix a couple packets together. We caught her pinching the powder in her little fingers and blissfully licking them. I wanted to be mad (it's not cheap!), but I grabbed the camera instead.

On this day I heard Charla yelling at Leora and came into the living room to this- my toddler chugging down what was left of the juice! Maybe she has a future as a poster child for Juicy Juice...

This picture just cracks me up every time I look at it! I guess it's pretty self-explanatory.

We've recently moved the table and chairs upstairs into the girls' room. I didn't snap a picture of it, but I found my resourceful little girl dragging her potty chair out of the bathroom to use as a step-stool, which I confiscated and returned the the now-closed bathroom.

She is such a little firecracker!!

Maybe its a third child thing. Seth is into everything, especially now that he has learned to climb. He especially loved climbing onto the toilet seat to play in the sink.
