Hey everyone. It’s 2 year old Cash! I’m so exhausted from the weekend. Do you know how tiring it is to never stop moving for 12 hours a day?!

Plus arching my back and screaming, “NOOOOOOOOO” every time they put me in a carseat is quite taxing. Don’t believe me? Try it sometime. It will sap your energy like nobody’s business. Whatever the heck that means. I heard my mom say it once.

Anyway, I had the best day, proving once again I am the most fun out of the five kids around here.  I loved playing at the water park. Oh wait, you might call it a sink.

I covered the whole floor with water. I’m plotting how I can turn the whole thing into an ice skating rink next time. Anyone knows where I can rent a zamboni? If you do, call my mom’s cell. But don’t tell her it’s for me.

We went grocery shopping too. Best part is of course throwing the stuff out of the cart as soon as my parents put it in. It causes my mom to do a lot of deep sighing and gets her completely distracted so my siblings can sneak in a double layer fudge cake. She doesn’t notice it until check out and then she just lets it slide.

Man, I could write a book about how to break your parents. I’ve got to find a good ghost writer.

This weekend, we also went to the race track where we got to see a lot of horses. Honestly, I wasn’t paying much attention because I’m not really a gambler and I was busy collecting empty beer bottles from the bleachers. A toddler’s work is never done. I’m thinking of starting my own recycling business.

One exciting development is that I figured out how to get out of my stroller so now I can do this thing called, “Stand up in my stroller while it’s moving” which seems to make my mother very agitated.

And you wouldn’t believe it but they tried one of these out on me….

My big sister Dylan has wanted a dog FOREVER so I think they are secretly trying to turn me into one! They claim it’s to prevent me from running into traffic but I’m not gullible people!! I know what you are doing.

My foot is still healing from when I stepped on glass and had to have surgery. I’m probably going to have a little scar on my foot. I can’t wait to impress the ladies. They love a guy who’s rough and tumble like that.

Meanwhile, my parents keep referring to me as a “crazy maniac monkey” which I can only assume means “handsome toddler” although I’ve never googled it.

Alright, I’m off to turn the laundry bins upside down! I just can’t seem to get a moment of relaxation around here.

    Love it!! You know you are going to miss the chaos when Chase goes to school…your house will be so quiet, tidy, clean and borrrrrrring!!! Hope you are having a calm day today…love the “water park” my 5 year old still thinks water is THE best thing…ie anytime any glass of water is anywhere near him he manages to spill it and usually I am the recipient of the spill. Happy days 🙂

    Chase, you are so brilliant! I love the idea of an indoor air conditioned water park with ice skating rink. I’d love to give it a try in the kitchen sometime but I suspect my mom won’t drive over from the other state just to clean it up. She’ll have some excuse like I’m an adult and should know better…. Parents! Always thwarting the fun!

    I’ve got monkey girl. Her backpack/leash/lifesaving restraint system is also a monkey. Rather fitting. She’s exhausting. I feel your pain.

    Oh, love him. I am just a couple years beyond the toddler phase with my kids and, damn, how fast you forget the craziness of those years. The physical toll on parents of constantly carrying a heavy kid, bending over the car seat, pulling the kid off the table, picking up the 1,000 messes, etc – whew – is incredible! Those cute, chubby cheeks make all the craziness forgivable.
