If you want to catch the action around here you better not blink, because Clark will be gone in a second. This morning we started school and in a flash there was cereal all over the floor. Then Katy was bringing Clark downstairs where he is supposed to stay. Then I catch him trying to pick Quinn up from the bouncy chair. I help him get busy in his room playing Legos and cars, then hear a cry of distress "Clark!" from upstairs. Kent brings him down. He eats some cereal from the floor. Then Quinn is fussing. Clark is trying to "-old it" again. I get Quinn and take him to change his diaper. Clark sneaks into my room before the door is closed starts singing "Jesus Loves Me" and grabs a bottle of BB's off Jeff's desk. Fortunately I caught him before he absconded with them. I finished changing Quinn's diaper and called Clark to come hold him. Clark is upstairs again. I bring him down and he "holds" Quinn and gives him lots of kisses. He gets a book and sits at the table in Felicity's chair "reading" it. I take a couple school books upstairs, put them on the shelf, give hugs to Katy and Kent, write a silly message on the white board and am gone less than 5 minutes. When I return Clark is sitting in Felicity's chair with a card game and has shredded the box it was in while trying to get it out. I get him down. While I fix the box with packing tape I hear paper rustling. When I finished fixing the box and went to put the packing tape away he was playing "doodle -oo" with the wrapping paper and had partially unrolled a couple of rolls. Oops! I guess I didn't latch the door and he noticed. I roll the wrapping paper back up and he starts to tear Felicity's butterfly off the wall. Since I'm right there I am able to put a quick stop to it. I fix the tear with a piece of tape and run up the stairs to catch Clark. I strap him into his high chair and fix lunch for a short reprieve.
Don't blink because if you do you will miss Clark and just see the aftermath of his adventures.
