Oh so true! I love this! Thank goodness for child-proof medicine bottles and locks as our children are very determined little people when it comes to opening or getting into something!

I have to work on that, making my kids do the laborious -- I'm too quick to just want to get things done. "Why don't you get the boys to help you?" My mother said as I was packing up to go back to our house, now that we had power. Good question. Except, I already felt too taxed to ta myself more by getting them off their TV butts. I was ready to turn into a hurricane mom myself. Bad momma. Bad, bad, bad.

What a cutie! My little guy has trouble with those too. And when he finally does get the straw in, he usually gives it a big squeeze...

I hate opening those pouches. It's so frustrating!

That is too, too cute. I remember all the times we punctured the juice box over the years. Those are precious moments and so thankful you are documenting them!

He's darling! I hope every last drop was as delicious as the one before. :)

My girl is the same way, it's the messier way so I wouldn't have it any other way!

Getting the juice out of those things can be so difficult sometimes. I think he deserves a cookie for figuring it out.

Too funny! My daughter would have been so frustrated and in tears she wouldn't have let me take pics of her.
