Look out Disney!  Here we come!  I'm making my lists and checking them twice.  Never before has all the laundry in the house been completely done.  The kids are most excited for....getting through security at the airport.  I'll be taking approximately 4.2 million pictures that you will all (4 or 5 of you, ha!) have to suffer through next week.

The Annoying Truth

Every time I fold laundry in the living room, Trey inevitably takes items from my meticulously organized piles and launches them one by one over the baby gate separating the living room and office.  He has a mischievous grin plastered on his face the whole time.

If left alone in a room for any extended amount of time, say 3 or 4 minutes, Trey will strip down to his {cute, sweet, adorable, pinchable} birthday suit....well, he still has the IV line and dressing covering it, so does that still count as nekked?  Either way...

When we tuck him in at night, within minutes he strips AND takes off the protective netting that keeps his IV lines from flapping in the wind.  *this is actually kinda dangerous and makes me nervous*

Several times a day, he fights his way into the kitchen, swipes food from the fridge, carries it into the living room, then throws a fit when we try to put it back.

Why did I list all these things?  And believe me, this is certainly not an exhaustive list of frustrating things...not to mention, his partners in crime, Joe and Bella.  Well, throughout the past year several people have commented that because of the difficult things Trey has had to go through, they try not to get annoyed or frustrated with their kids.  Or that they feel guilty for getting annoyed with their kids.

While, we certainly try to treat our children with an over abundance of grace and patience...

The annoying truth is that we still get annoyed.

*editors note:  We cherish every moment we have with all 3 of our wonderful children that we have been undeservedly blessed with.
