2 1/2 year old antics

2 1/2 is a wonderful age..... mischievous, but wonderful! Every day is a new crisis, I mean adventure. The other night we were on our way home from a running errands when I heard what sounded like a sprinkler hitting the side of the Tahoe. I thought nothing of it until I heard it again and then realized that since were going 70 down the freeway, there was no way it was a sprinkler. I quickly turned the overhead light on, whipped around in my seat, and spied a very sly grin on Chase's face. Turns out he had invented a new game called, "Splash the Ceiling w/Lemonade." Here is how you play for anyone that might be interested:

1) Acquire a cup full of lemonade (make sure there is lots of sugar in the lemonade in order to leave residue on ceiling after it dries and heats up in the Texas sun)
2) Find syringe that grandmother gave you to play with in the bathtub and eventually found it's way into carseat.
3) Fill oversized cheeks with lemonade and let a small amount dribble down your front just for the heck of it.
4) Take above mentioned syringe, insert in to mouth, and withdraw lemonade into said syringe.
5) Swallow the remainder of lemonade in oversized cheeks.
6) Point filled syringe towards ceiling of vehicle and push plunger as hard as you can to cause a waterfall effect and spray entire area about giggling little body.
7) Enjoy the look of terror on Mother's face as she realized what you have done and can't help but think, "Oh God, we are in soooo much trouble."
