Oh, Jake!

Today, while I was feeding Sarah in the kids' room, Jake was wandering around upstairs... playing with toys, the laundry basket, his new balloon (thanks, Scotty and May May!). Eventually, he ended up in our bedroom-- I just knew he was being sneaky and doing something he shouldn't.

I went to check on him and found that he had been playing with the little bag of tiny screws that's been residing on Blaine's nightstand for weeks now. Jake becomes obsessed with these every time he sees them. Frankly, I don't know why we haven't moved them from the nightstand. I mean, seriously, something like this was bound to happen.

Well, upon noticing the bag was missing some screws, I looked around and found that he had dropped a few down the floor vent. I scolded him a little for this, and then lifted the vent cover out for a closer look. I then scooped 42 tiny screws out of the floor. 42! The funny thing about this is that I'm pretty sure he's been at it for a while now. I think he's been dropping a few screws at a time for weeks, because when I filled up the bag, it seemed much more full to me than it has in a while.

Note to Blaine: I've moved the now full bag to your office.

Something like dropping screws down a vent seems WAY to tempting to pass up if you ask me :) It sounds like him though...he probably was just wondering what would happen if he did it. Curious little guy. He's awesome!

I was waiting for you to say he swallowed one. Glad that didn't happen. But the dropping screws for weeks is pretty hilarious.

Glad to know my husband isn't the only one who has weird stuff laying around for weeks.
