was nowhere to be found

Never a good thing with this kid
He has hiding spots all over the house
where he goes
 when he knows he is being naughty
or has something he knows
 he is not supposed to have
and doesn't want to get caught.
He's so naughty it's kind of funny
Even thought it's really not.

It's scary the stuff this kid can figure out
Baby locks and deadbolts are no obstacle
Neither are fridge tops or high shelves


I finally saw these little piggies

and at first that's all I saw.

They were so cute 
wiggling and flexing in obvious excitement

Then I saw what he was doing.

 Stinker had sneaked Dad's iPad 
and was having the time of his little life.
Dancing and bobbing to the song that was on
with the game he had opened and was "playing"

I so wish I had a picture of his face
Pure delight

But I missed my chance because
 as soon as he saw me 
he dove under the bed 
with the iPad clutched to his chest.

I had to haul him out arching and screaming.
(Dad has very strong feelings about the kids playing/destroying his iPad)

I don't have such strong feelings and let them play mine, 
but he KNOWS Dad's is off limits
 and that made the victory all the sweeter. 

After he stopped screaming and swinging for me
He glared at me for another ten minutes
 every time I tried to talk to him.

Then when I finally took my eye off of him for two seconds
and turned around to put Collin's shoes on,
 Keegan found the squirt bottle in the bathroom
 and proceeded to soak himself and the carpet.

His happy, excited mood returned in full force

Until I rudely took that happiness away too.

I'm a ruin-er
I take all really excellent and exciting things
and try to hide them on high shelves.

Or so I am sure Keegan thinks.


 This is to prove that he is not a first time offender. 
Good thing we have not adopted the three strikes policy in this house
or the kid would be toast
