Day 18, 19 & 20 – Balloons, Briefs and Marshmallow Messages

The latest misadventures of Max…

Aside from the fact that Becket is obsessed with balloons and went nuts to get the “buh-ga” (his 18-month-old word for balloon), we’ve been successfully creating magic each morning without dramatics over the favorite toy that’s off limits for the day. Just 5 days left this year!

Day 15, 16 & 17 – Toilet Paper, Guitars & Reindeer Cars

The last couple days of Max shenanigans looked like this…

15 - Toilet Paper Roll

16 - Guitar

17 - Reindeer Cars

We’ve been running into some trouble with Beckett – when Max is within his reach, he wants him… and sometimes grabs him, which is problematic because Brogan’s worried he’ll lose his magic. We’ve tried to explain that when little brothers don’t know any better, it’s alright, and obviously Max has not lost his magic yet. The explanation works for now.

Day 12, 13 and 14 – Coffee, Ice Cubes and Cookies

I’m a couple of days behind… and then figured I’d go ahead and give the sneak preview on what Max is up to tonight.

Day 12 – Max has been pulling some late nights getting in to all this trouble and needed a caffeine fix.

12 - Coffee Drinker

Day 13 – Max nearly turned into an ice cube! Lucky for him, his head was too big to fit into the cube, so he’s only partially frozen. When Brogan asked if he was cold, I reminded him that Max is from the North Pole where it is much colder than it is in our freezer. Made sense to him.

Day 14 – Sneak peak… being up this late I got to see what Max has been up to tonight. Making “elf cookies” with Play Doh. Brogan is going to love this one!

Day 11 – Bandaid Bandit

Max got the inspiration for this stunt from Brogan – my child who has been known to wake up in the middle of the night and adorn himself with bandaids (and gloves too). So imagine Brogan’s excitement when our elf was up to his own tricks!

Day 10 – Max the Mummy

Ole Max turned into a mummy last night.

10 - Max the Mummy

I wasn’t home when Brogan woke up this morning to get his initial reaction, but this afternoon when I asked him what Max had done, he said, “Mommy, you won’t believe it!! Max is a mummy!”

Making Christmas time magical for him (and Beckett – although he doesn’t quite get what’s going on) is just so awesome!

Day 9 – Beach Day

So Max (and me) have been a little jealous of all my Florida friends and family posting pictures at the beach and on the lake in 80-degree weather (in December!!) while we’re in day 8 of rain and it’s 42 degrees. Well Max decided it was time for a little beach getaway…

9 - At the Beach

When Brogan saw Max, he promptly decided he’d taste the sand (so glad Max opted for brown sugar!).
