Does anyone remember this scene from the movie Baby Mama?

Seriously, one of the funniest clips I've ever seen in a movie.
This weekend, I lived through my own, but certainly not my first Baby Mama experience.
I hear the water running, peak in the bathroom and gasp.
It looks like Reef is up to no good, doesn’t it.
The question runs through my mind "What is he covered in?"
What type of horrible mess will I see just around the corner by the toilet?
And then I realize he's covered in chocolate.
And thank heavens because he's already licking at his wounds.
This is what happens when chocolate chips collide with a two-year old.
Lucky for me, the mess isn’t too bad.
But wait.
What’s this.
Just after I clean up, I hear the water running in the bathroom again.
I walk in and this is what I see.
It looks like Mayer is up to no good.
The question runs through my mind again.
Plunger in the sink?  Brown milky water?
Oh my!
But it appears Mayer has been helping the counselor dig in the garden
And now he's taking the opportunity to rinse his muddy hands off in the sink (only the drain is clogged and he needs some major Mom intervention).
Am I upset?
Considering it's not what I thought it was, I help clean up without even raising my voice.
Despite these close encounters of the messy kind, the weekend is full of hugs
and plenty of baby sugar.
Just ask Little Sis, posing on her own vintage sheet table cloth.
Watch out!  She drools, but even that's precious.
She's all ready for some sweet sugar from Chandler,
and all her brothers.

I hit the Pottery Barn "trash" jack pot with these $3.99 chairs from Goodwill
and my $12.99 Pottery Barn toy box?
and my Pottery Barn baby mobile I bought off Ebay for $10.49.
This weekend I'm happy my sugar came from babies, chocolate and Pottery Barn.  Considering the alternative, I feel pretty lucky.
