A beautiful day!

Okay people, I have to be honest.  It has been a rough week around here.  Between Baby G’s constant ear-piercing shrieks and SuperGirl’s 800 melt-downs a day, we were beginning to feel as if we were losing all control of this house.  Plus both children having very inconsistent waking patterns everynight means little to no sleep for grown-ups.  This makes for a pretty grumpy house.  At 7 this morning Daddy-O had already left for work, SuperGirl had found her way to my bed and Baby G was belting out his infamous shrieks from his room.  As I tried to crawl my way out of bed to go get him SuperGirl flipped out and started crying and yelling about how she didn’t want me to leave, “I just want my brother to cry!!”  As she tugged at my arm as I walked away I was trying to figure out how on Earth I was going to make it through this day.

However….sometime between that moment and breakfast something wonderful happened to my children.  I have no idea what it was, but I love it and want to marry it 🙂  Supergirl spent the day playing quietly by herself, with me and even with her brother.  She set up a tea party for all of her animals, read her books for a very long time, and drew pictures on her leapster.  Even at naptime I set the timer and the second she heard it beep she laid down and fell asleep.  Baby G spent the day learning how to crawl.  He is now up on his knees and elbows and spends more time going frontwards than rolling sideways.  You can tell he is VERY excited about this newfound freedom.  I think I only heard a handful of shrieks the entire day.  He spent most of the day sticking out his tongue.  He became a little obsessed with that over the course of the day.  I was so excited about our day I decided we needed to treat ourselves with a little DQ!

Oh, I also signed Supergirl up for a dance class (ballet/tap) today.  She starts September 4.  “Shamelessly living vicariously through your children“—here I come!

 I hope your day was as great as ours!

 Here’s my little man thinking he is hot stuff with a spoon…

And his tongue, which stayed like this for the rest of the day 🙂

Okay, so this was actually 2 days ago, but it demonstrates one of the many tea parties that are going on continuously around here and it is Baby G on the day SuperGirl informed me “mom, he looks really cool in that shirt”

    It’s never too soon to start practicing for flushing in public restrooms! Isn’t there a commercial Boomer can star in? “WHASSSSS-UP!” He’s even got the right look in his eyes.

    Glad to hear you guys had an excellent day!

    I am totally laughing at the foot flushing. She doesn’t want to get her hands dirty mom. Haven’t we all been in those restrooms where you would have to be held at gun point before you would use your hands? I know this isn’t true of your house as I have used that restroom. she is just practicing for the next time she is at a roadside gas station in the middle of no where.

    Love the tounge. Minnow does that a lot too. I have a ton of pictures with his tounge hanging out.

    Excuse my very bad English, I have work to improve it…

    What wonderful children, they are gorgeous !

    I am a mom of two girls : the first one, “home-made”, is 3-years-old and looks like your “SuperGirl” ; and the second one is 2-years-old, she arrived from Ethiopia one year ago ; and she has a delirious tongue too !

    I laughed a lot by seeing the photos of your children !

    I wish you many beautiful days like this one !

    And, with some days of delay : for SuperGirl : “Joyeux Anniversaire” from France (it is why I am late… hum…)
