Hey Mom, Look what I can do…. !!

January 13, 2013

Yesterday morning the kids had gotten up – I got up to get some cereal and juice for them – and then went back to bed to start ‘waking up’.

Not so different from any other Saturday morning.

Except I hear Andrew fidgeting in the hallway with something.. so I go to see what he’s up to… Oh and, of course – take pictures.

The rest really speaks for itself.


Yep: By the time I got to the hallway, he already had one screw off.  He said he needed to see behind the vent…

Honestly, Joe and I think he found the screwdriver, and proceeded to the nearest screw he could reach….

Andrews Craftsmanship

I didn’t quite understand – but he was very determined, and I figured he couldn’t really hurt much with me standing there.

He was SO excited that he found one of his Transformers Rescue Bots books down there (there is about 1/2” of open space between the carpet and the bottom of the vent – so things can slide through there – news to us!)

And when he was all finished, he put it back together.  All by himself.



Maybe Its time to start hiding the screwdrivers…?

In other news: Ethan learned how to peel bananas on his own: which has lead to four bananas eaten today, and likely no poopy diapers for a few days…


I may need to get him some prunes.

    how cute an funny, ,he probably put it behind the vent so he could open the vent to get it out,,at least he knew what screwdriver to use

  2. Gina Brickell says:

    Wow, that’s cute! Maybe he’s thinking about becoming a mechanic or handyman when he gets older!!

  3. Sherri Lewis says:

    ha ha….. I missed so much by not having a boy 🙂

  4. Amanda N. says:

    Wow! Clever! It’s always so exciting to see them do new things all by themselves. I wouldn’t worry too much about the bananas. My son went through a bananas and toast phase, but never had any trouble in the diaper area. 🙂

  5. Lol! How funny! I bet he was so happy that mommy let him finish getting in there and putting it back on like a big boy.Smart kid! I had a girl and my sister had 2 girls so we never had experiences with boys.My 2 neices do some pretty funny/naughty things too.:)

    gonna be a little worker, reminds me when my son was around 2 1/2 he took our vacuum cleaner apart, the sad thing was his daddy couldn’t put it back together and today he’s always tingering with something

  8. awww, that’s great that he was able to find one of his missing books!
