Thanks Uncle Dave


We decided to try Dave's suggestion of putting leg weights on Charlie to slow him down
Dad putting on the weights...


Charlie immediately ripped them off, so we resorted to taping them on...


Charlie trying to take them off again without success, thanks to the tape!



He resorted to trying to bite them off...


The look of distress when he realized he couldn't get them off...


More distress and big brother trying to come to the rescue...


Not a happy camper.

So, Dave, it was a pretty good idea. He didn't get into anything because he spent all his time trying to get the weights off. (Disclaimer: For any random readers on here, please don't turn us into CPS. We only left the weights on for about 5 minutes and it was all in good fun. No harm was done to the child in the picture.)

WHOA. For a second I thought you were talking about our Uncle Dave...confusion.
Charlie's face in the "look of distress" picture is TOTAL Matt. No CPS calling here! I say you give it another try! It's truly a brilliant plan. And Charlie will for sure thank you later when he's breaking NCAA records as a running back...

That is awesome! What a great idea! I might have to try that with lauryn AND jordan! Hey, by the way, just wondering if you could fill me in on how to get a picture up on the header. I have tried and when I put on up there it comes up HUGE, and I think yours looks so cute, let me know how you did it. Nat

This totally reminds me of putting tape on a cats paw's. It drives them crazy. You guys make me laugh.

Hey ... this is CPS scanning blogs for any possible incidents ... could you please send us your address?

Just kidding.

So kidding. Cuz if they are scanning blogs I'm nog posting anymore!

Funny! What about big cardboard "rolls" that could slide over his legs like robot legs? So his legs don't bend so far? So he has to walk slower?

I'm a thinker.

I loved the Valentine's Day post. Ours was saved by the party they threw at church. Complete with dancing, party games, and chocolate. But your dessert looked better! We had sundaes.

That is seriously funny! I love it! Who doesn't torture their kids every once in a while? Chad liked to put stickers on the kids backs, just out of reach...so they would be reaching and reaching and eventually screaming trying to get it off. What good are kids if you can't have a little fun!
