Like Father, Like Son

There's an old Moore family tale that goes something like this:

Once upon a time, there was a mischievous little boy named Michael who decided he needed to mortar his blocks together using a tube of toothpaste. It made a big mess, but the little boy was proud of himself. The end.

Today we discovered that history really does repeat itself! Except this time it was with lotion, not toothpaste. Which I think is at least easier to clean up.

This was the best looking tower. The ones on the bed and floor were only 2 or 3 blocks tall, and most of the lotion missed the blocks somehow...But this one was pretty good!

Very proud of himself, indeed!

Coincidence? I think not. Must be genetic.

Hey Ryan, toothpaste would've worked better. It's less goopy!

You have to remember that for the past two years Ryan has been hearing your threats about leaving the toothpaste alone. "Ryan, we don't eat the toothpaste!"
So the poor guy was probably too frightened to use the toothpaste.

That is some serious skill. Don't worry, I'll get him some super glue for his birthday. That'll do the trick!

Just remember, Katie has birthdays too!
