Lunchables, Thomas Undies, & Wrestling Matches


Do you ever walk in to your kitchen and find your toddler standing in your refrigerator?

In his underwear.

Thomas underwear of course.

Refrigerator Climbing


Apparently, little big man likes to eat. And he likes to eat ALL the time.

Even when you say “no more snacks”, he takes matters in to his own hands. He’s not messing around.

Somebody give him some food. NOW.

One of his favorite things to pick out of the refrigerator is a lunchable.

Only problem with that…he only likes the lunchables for the cookies.


The ham, crackers, and cheese….PSSST! He could care less.

Just give Bam-Bam his cookies dang it.

Ham Lunchable

 What a waste of $4.00!

He really truly never ceases to amaze me when it come to independence.

He has no concept of fear and he uses the bar stools to climb just about anywhere (including the refrigerator).

 Here’s a prime example of how his independent attitude usually lands him in trouble.Of course this was courtesy of a wrestling match a few weeks ago between him and P. His head hit the corner of the floor baseboard. I think he may have cried for a mere 7 seconds and then it was off to see if he could punch his brother.


I’m getting very nervous because I am seeing glimpses of SJ’s personality…AND he is starting to become Bents #2.

Lord help me!


  1. Girl you just have your hands full! Liam isn’t into climbing into the fridge, but he will open it up or the pantry and help himself.

    And he comes at his older brother with fists ready for a punching match. Good luck with SJ! Hopefully he can have a good balance between P & B!

    Super cute! My boys waste lunchables too. I’ve stopped buying them. And my 19 month old is quickly following in his bro’s foot steps. We now have wild man and wild man #2.

    Ok, seriously, right as I opened this link up to read your post Jackson walked in the room and said, “Mommy, I’m hungry!” and I hear this about 20 times a day! I don’t know how many times I have to get on to him throughout the day for getting into the fridge or the pantry and getting into things, but it’s a lot! Yesterday, I actually tied the fridge closed with ribbon so that I could get my run on the treadmill in without having to worry about him getting into the fridge. The boys also like to get into the soap and water around here and splash down the bathroom. No bueno!

    Your posts are making me so nervous! Brady is pretty mild mannered when it comes to typical “boy” stuff… I hope #2 isn’t going to give us all our heart attacks!

    Good look with SJ!

    We have the same bar stools and Blake pushes them EVERYWHERE!!! And I am impressed that Bents is sporting his little Thomas undies! I will be embarking on the potty training journey with Blake soon and I am NOT looking forward to it.
    P.S. You guys have a crap load of eggs in your fridge! That’s all Jeff isn’t it…Mr. Protein :-)

    You should not wrestle all opponents the same way. This is true even if you are the favorite in the match. If you don’t take your opponent seriously, you could lose the match.
