Bad things - dangerous things - will happen if you blink in the presence of 17 month old children.
If you think that you have time to take two cups of water from the sink to the stove, you most certainly do not. Because in those two seconds, your monkey children will figure out that you're not looking at them. They will realize that the fruit you keep on the dining room table are actually balls! Balls that need to be thrown off! Right now!!
Normal parents would hurry and immediately get the children off the table, particularly if the table is "pub style" (like ours) and dangerously high. Maybe this is more or less proving how confident I am in their abilities... I wasn't even the least bit worried about them. My biggest concern was that they'd finish that bowl of fruit before I could grab my camera. Priorities, people. :)
(PS, my Canon T1I was supposed to be delivered today... the quality of these photos reinforce why I need it!)
