The Troublemaker

Kids are good at calling it like they see it.  At our house, they can oft be heard calling the littlest among them, "The Troublemaker."  It seems they may have good cause for their nickname.

as he climbs on step stools in search of

forbidden candy buckets,

ventures up ladders he's not supposed to climb,

apprehends purses he's not supposed to have,

sits in a basket that instead belongs on the shelf (this is one of his favorite playing spots),

and eats chocolate he found who knows where,

that he's too young to eat, at least by the Pull house standards.

They may have it right, he is a bit of a trouble maker, but when he flashes that winsome, slightly mischevious, yet striving for innocent, smile at you,

one has a tendency to momentarily forget and possibly forgive any kind of troublemaking.

  1. I love seeing Joey in the boys' old clothes. It warms my heart that another little rug rat is wearing them out.
