Making Brownies

I just had to post some pictures of Cam helping me make brownies today. He was in heaven! So, let the truth be known. Cameron is almost 18 months old and it hasn't been until the past week that I've let him sit on the counter while I cook. I know what you're all thinking, so let me explain. I've had a hard time in the past putting him up there because I'm a freak when it comes to messes, kids are oblivious to messes and I am definitely not. Yes, call me anal, I'll admit it, I can't handle messes. Lately I've been trying very hard to just get over it and worry about cleaning up later. I'm pretty proud of myself, Cameron has been on the counter numerous times within the past week helping me out, yes, he gets food everywhere however, I've been totally calm and have reminded myself that everything can be cleaned and if it can't oh well. I decided to document this brownie event to show everyone that by the end of this whole process Cam was a mess, the counter was a mess, but hey, it wasn't too bad to clean up, stripping kids down and throwing their clothes into the washing machine isn't such a big deal, right?


I've got to explain the BSU jersey too. Cameron loves balls, especially this Boise State football that Rod got me for Christmas. The ball is bright orange and Cam loves to throw it around. Well, for some reason, when Cam catches a glimpse of this jersey in his closet, he points at it and says, "ball, ball" until I get it down for him and put it on him and then all day, when he notices that he has that shirt on, he pulls at it and says, "ball, ball". What a goofy kid, but I sure do love him! For those of you who might not know, Rod is a die hard BSU football fan so whenever he comes home from work and Cam has his BSU jersey on, Rod just melts, he loves that his little man is well on his way to becoming a fan himself. GO BSU!

PS: I think you still talk with Kim "Oyler"...her brother Chad lived out here for two years and we all became really really close. They are back in Boise now. She told me you had a little boy when they were here for Chad & Ryann's baby blessing.

What a good mom! I hate the messes too, but you're right, I guess we should all try to lighten up about that kind of stuff! Cam is such a cutie!
