I woke up from my afternoon nap (during which Marshy was supposedly asleep as well) to find the house in a state of chaos.

Marsh had only pretended to sleep!

He trashed his room. Ripped his bed apart, threw his toys all over the floor, and dumped out his dirty clothes hamper.

Then he went down into the kitchen. YIKES! He tried to help with the dishes by dumping an entire box of additive into the dishwasher, which was full of clean dishes, and all over the floor. He must have gotten hungry because he pulled two sticks of butter out of the fridge, unwrapped them, and took a few giant bites out of each! He also dumped his dad's heat-shrink plastic all over the kitchen floor.

Then he decided to watch a movie. He turned on the PS3. I didn't realize, until just now, that he had taken out my movie (Pride and Prejudice on blu-ray!) and put Wall-E in, only backwards. He closed the cupboard and couldn't figure the rest out, so came up to get me. He also had gone through some of the HD-DVDs we have and put them in the Wall-E case. What a silly boy!

I was so mad at him when I saw the state of his room and the kitchen, but now seeing how he was really just trying to do what he sees me do everyday, it makes me laugh and is really quite cute! Of course, he did get in a lot of trouble, and he was very sad and upset for a good hour and a half.

I'm sorry but I had to laugh. What a mission Marshy was on! I'm impressed.

That is the kind of thing that used to happen to me when I was a teenager babysitting my two nephews. I was trying to burn the candle at both ends, so at naptime I would fall asleep promptly and they would fake sleep and then run amok.
