The Stay at Home Mom Chronicles : When You're a Two Year Old Scamp

I'm realizing that my days around here seem to run together.
Ordinary moments unfold around me daily
and I need to stop and relish in them.
One day, my boys will be out living life
and I will miss these everyday experiences.

So, I am taking the time to document
the simple moments that pass between us.
I'm calling this little collection of memories...

<span class=


I want to forever remember Koen as he is at the age of two.
His third birthday is fast approaching
and I can sense him changing everyday.

So many amazing things happen
when you're a two year old scamp of a kid,
such as...


any corner of the house can be cozy
with a big pillow,
fuzzy blanket,
a lovie,
and a pacifier.

(He doesn't know it yet, but the pacifier is being confiscated when he turns three.)


When you are two
your cheeks are always rosy
and your face almost always has
gunk on it.


You can destroy a room
in about twenty seconds flat.


Nothing could ever be as thrilling
as a peek into daddy's toolbox,
it's like a magical porthole of awesomeness.


Except maybe a bubble gun!


Yeah, things are pretty great
when you're a two year old scamp!

Beautiful, dreamy eyes on that little guy! You will look back on these days (and wonderful photos) with deep love and contentment! Thanks for sharing and bringing back soft memories of my own long-ago 2 year olds!

This is awesome. Such a cutie

Beautiful. Made me all choked up!!!

p.s. I had no idea that Becca and Koen were around the same age. Becca just turned 3. For some reason I was thinking she was younger than him. All this is the same for girls except instead of destroying a room in seconds flat (which they CAN do as well) they will destroy a closet, pull out ALL of the clothes and change in and out of them 1, 877, 473, 863 times.

Koen is adorable. :) Happy early birthday, buddy!

Oh, how I love the scamp age. (Actually, I still have a couple of scamps...and they're adults!)
