Motherhood Moments: Booby Traps, “Parte” Planning, and Building the Pyramids

Ahh, motherhood moments. They evolve as your child grows – or at least that’s what I am learning. Our house is always filled with interesting things the kids come up with. This blog has been helpful in that it makes me stop and go get the camera. Otherwise, I would probably just laugh and go on. Later, I will be glad we have a record. (I hope. Or, if not, I am gonna be really mad I spent all this time chronicling it!) Anyway,this batch of motherhood moments are from my son Charlie, who is every bit of five-years old.

Booby Trap.

Apparently, Charlie is Data from The Goonies.

“That’s what I said, I said I’m setting booty traps in case anyone’s chase us – like the Fertellis. Quiet SHHH!”

Here’s a 20 second clip if you wanna watch it.

When you are five, you plan your birthday all year long.

This “Parte” invitation was found in a paper airplane.

Charlie wanted to carry this cat around while trick-or-treating and ask people to put candy in the bag by the cat’s butt.

Yet another reason we do not have a real cat. Another reason. And another reason.

Fueled by candy, this is what Charlie made with tape and little plastic cups. And you know…today’s Dixie Cup® pyramid could be tomorrow’s beer pyramid. Much to my dismay, he’s probably going to be REALLY fun at a party one day. For now, (all evidence to the contrary with that big box of NERDS® sitting there) we are trying to limit the food with dyes and encourage good behavior. But when he’s older and on his own…well, all bets are off!

Anyone have a motherhood moment you caught on camera that will make us laugh? Feel free to email me at Heather at TheMommyhood dot com!
