1. Behavior that causes discomfiture or annoyance in another.
2. An inclination or tendency to play pranks or cause embarrassment.
3. One that causes minor trouble or disturbance: The child was a mischief in school.
4. Damage, destruction, or injury caused by a specific person or thing: The broken window was the mischief of vandals.
5. The state or quality of being mischievous.
This child is full of mischief. 

In a given 10 minute period, he will have the entire contents of a bathroom drawer emptied and all around him. 

By the time I realize how 'quiet' it seems, I will find this boy pulling out each diaper from his changing table and put them into his crib. 

He will, in a matter of moments, climb into drawers, cabinets, and even our oven warmer (when turned off). 

His favorite things are appliances. 
Hiding in them, climbing in them, & just simply removing their contents.
He is a toothbrush stealer.
A crayon-chewer.
A chalk-hoarder.
Jude has discovered a new grace about him to simply take a deep breath when the freshly-cleaned room is now littered with toys all over his floor.  I'm proud of that big brother. 
A few nights ago, I took the boys to Barnes & Noble.  It was the typical scene.  Jude was reading books quietly & Leland was walking around...taking books to strangers and indicating he'd like these perfect strangers to read them.  As I would kindly try to apologize, these lovely people would begin the book when all of a sudden my cute little peanut would pass gas like a 70-yr old man. 

I have this feeling he is going to always be the kid with plenty of stories to tell. 

Happy Friday!
