Working on Cole's Trash Placement Skills

Cole is quirky.  Saying he has a good imagination feels insignificant.  He's just funny.

He also is my most challenging.  I guess these often go hand in hand, right? 

For a while he was taking off his pull up in the morning, soaked with urine, and putting it in the dirty laundry hamper instead of the trashcan.  The laundry room and surrounding areas reeked of urine....and I almost threw about five of these pull ups in the washing machine.  Not a good idea.

Yesterday I found four, yes FOUR, pieces of chewed mint gum in random locations around the minivan. Guess who chews mint gum?  Cole and I do.  Surprisingly, I have not been stuffing pieces of chewed gum in the van's cup holders, the seat back pockets, Stella's car seat....or on the start button, which started the search for more gum. 

This morning I found a piece of rotting banana on a shelf in the playroom.  At least it was put away on the shelf I guess. I also found another piece of rotting banana on the windowsill in my kitchen behind a picture frame....under a piece of paper.  This banana placement screams Cole.

Guess what else screams Cole?

He hadn't been happy about being told that I expected him to throw his own yogurt tube in the trash. I guess he showed me.  This is the master bathroom toilet. 

(Yes, our toilet is weird and has that wood looking seat.  It's just the tip of the iceberg of the weird in our house people.  Check out the Charlie Sheen post for a view of the master bedroom door.)

I guess he and I have some work to do on where the trashcan is located for all this stuff.   

Doesn't he just look like trouble?  Cute trouble, but trouble.

Laughing (but not too hard because that would be rude) because my youngest did stuff like that all the time as a toddler. She threw all the trash in the toilet once. I was so mad!!!

Thanks for the visit today. :)
