Tornado Warning!

My little Peanut is a tornado.

She completely destroys every room she walks into. Her bedroom is in a continual state of disarray. She makes a habit of dumping the living room toy basket first thing in the morning. She recently discovered Mommy's dresser and enjoys emptying entire drawers and hanging tank tops, underwear and bras around her neck and then discarding them in random places. Which explains how my underwear ended up on my welcome mat.

And she's so quick! I leave her unsupervised for just a minute and I can count on a disaster area.

Case in point: The other night while I was making dinner, she went on a rampage. Once dinner was on the table, about 20 minutes later, I stood back and assessed the damage.

It is unbelievable to me that a two and a half foot tall little person can completely destroy a room in no time at all. Take a look:



Okay, so I actually took the "before" picture after I cleaned up the mess she made. But I swear, it looked just like that before she got a hold of it.

Let's take one more look:

And my husband wonders why I can't keep the house clean.

So my house is continually under a tornado warning. If you ever come by my house and my whole house looks like the "after" picture, you'll know why.

You've been warned.
