Slippery When Wet

We had the carpets cleaned yesterday and the company
(I highly recommend them, by the way) put
"Caution, Slippery When Wet"
signs around the house.
Last night Nicholas asked if he could keep some.
Well, why not?

Here's what I found this morning:

Was this a "planned" accident so he could use his signs?
If he's old enough to put up caution signs, is he old enough to wash his own sheets?
Did he know that by putting out the signs, I would get a good laugh and not begrudge having to wash the sheets and make the bed?

Nicholas, What Have You Done?

Nicholas lost TWO teeth last week!

He also got tired of his hair getting in his eyes
and decided to take matters into his own hands.

Is this me?

We received the August issue of BYU Magazine and I set it in the pile of stuff to look at later. Marty saw it the next morning, picked it up and stared at it, then said, "Mom, why are you on the cover of this magazine?"

Ha, ha, right?

I took a look so I could have a laugh at who he thought looked like me and stopped short... uhhh... where did they get this picture? It really looks like me -- or should I say the me 20 years ago.

Yep, the shirt, the Girbaud jeans, the baggy Gap socks, pearls under the collar, profile, facial expression, fat fingers, All Check.

But I'm not sure I ever pulled my bangs back back then. My sister, convinced it is me (See the hairline? It even matches...if only we could zoom in on the hands and see if your wart scars are there!), called BYU to get more info. They don't have a name of the person in the photo but only know it was taken in 1991. So that checks out too.

If it's not me, it's definitely my twin!
