This child of mine.....

is going to be the death of me. Remember the post below and how angelic he looked.....

I always thought that Tatum was the most trying of the four. But Teagan is slowly proving me wrong. Yeah, Tatum was the artiste and colored every surface in the house, but Teagan is just plain destructive. By 8:30 in the morning I had stopped him from dumping water onto a brand new toilet paper roll (yes, several have ended up soaked in the past), stopped him from dunking baby wipes into the toilet, chased him out from under the bathroom sink, and the worst of it.....

I lit a candle on the dining room table, which has been lit for the last couple days without anyone bothering it. Apparently, you shouldn't put it on a table where a toddler can climb up in the chairs. After helping Tatum in the bathroom I walk out to see Teagan holding a flaming piece of something IN HIS HAND! When I lit the candle, I told him not to blow it out and not to touch it. So instead, he stuck an obviously flammable Mardi Gras coin into the flame. It probably wouldn't have bothered him if I hadn't come running across the room screaming. A couple small pieces of plastic stuck to his wrist, but other than that, he was unscathed. He has a tiny little blister on his wrist now. It wasn't until about 10 minutes later that I noticed a small piece stuck to my hand too. So now I have a matching blister on my hand. It doesn't hurt, just itches a little.

Teagan of course, is back to his antics and doesn't seem to mind.
