The Middle Child

Thanks to my friend Ursula, I have decided to read The Birth Order Book by Dr. Kevin Leman. I won't get into the details of what I'm learning about myself and my birth order, but I will tell you it is extremely interesting, and I'm hoping to gain some valuable insight into all my children's personalities, especially this one:

This past week or so he's developed an interest in all the locks on the bathroom doors and our bedroom door. Not so bad when he locks himself in and you coax him to unlock it, not so fun when he locks it and then runs from the room and closes the door behind him.
 He's been quoting random things lately too, all in his crazed sing song Parker way, so there is little chance of figuring out where the original quote came from.
tonight at dinner he says "Call the fire brigade, my tongue is on FII-IRE!"( although he says brigand instead of brigade, I think this is from a game he plays on Boowa and Kwala)
Another thing he likes to say again and again, is "We'll get you what you want" ( I think this is from Backyardigans music we play in the car) and "KA-BOOOOO!" while he's trying to make his baby brother laugh, or drive his older brother crazy. He is a non-stop little ball of climbing, rolling, singing,roaring,bouncing-of-the-walls with energy little boy.
maybe this week I'll try and keep a little list of what my little hooligan gets into, it might make a fun page all on it's own.

The page was brought about by a friendly challenge we had between the admins of Practical Scrappers this month to use everyday tape on a project. I used scotch tape to seal some punched shapes and sequins to my background cardstock. I then had a blast doodling and adding details like stamps and Pearls with my Pearl Pen and Glitter Liner from Viva Decor.
