Oatmeal Lowers Cholesterol, but raises my Blood Pressure!

So this is how the story goes; Brian and I were upstairs and the kids were downstairs (nothing to crazy about this story yet this is not an unusual occurrence at our house, but I guess today was different) I was checking my e-mail and few other things, this probably took maybe 5 minutes. As I left our bedroom to go downstairs, I thought to myself that things were eerily quiet and as I rounded the corner and came down the hall, I soon discovered the reason.
Does this look like a guilty face or what?

I guess I only have myself to blame, I was the one who didn't get the latch on the lower cabinet fully closed after I retrieved my granola for my yogurt this morning. Still, I am not sure what possessed Grey to grab the tub of Oatmeal commence in making this beautiful mess. And of course it wasn't the old fashioned oats with the big pieces, it had to be the quick oats that are tiny and covered with a fine oatmeal powder.

When I asked Will what happened he of course ratted out his younger brother, but was all to excited and not at all remorseful that now they got to drive their cars in a fantastic "Snow" storm
Luckily I was able to hire a fantastic clean-up crew (I think we were vacuuming for a good half hour) Thanks BOYS!!!!! At least Brian was there and reminded me that these are the moments when we just laugh and grab the camera so we can remember these funny moments.

I love that the oatmeal is in his hair and all over his shirt too...definitely the guilty party. It's like powdered sugar with a couple oats. Awesome. I can't wait to see you tomorrow.

This happens often at our house, guilty faces and all! I on the other hand probably don't handle it as good as you did! :)

I'm so happy to see I'm not the only mom who has kids that do stuff like this. It's great that you were able to capture the moment...I would have just yelled and made my kids cry. (I need to work on that!)
