I’m the mom at the playground trying to explain to the boys that you can’t just randomly come up to other kids and touch or hug them. The boys are so used to being with just each other that when they see other children they want to eat them up. I don’t know why lately I’ve had that feeling of wanting to keep them to myself. We’ve kept our outings to a minimal and whenever it is I am not working, I just want to veggie out in their room and watch them play. They are growing into independent little men with big opinions and mighty tempers. As much as I am extremely grateful and happy to be working every weekend, I miss the lazy mornings in bed all four of us, watching cartoons and making a mess on the bed because breakfast with toddlers anywhere but outside always requires major clean up. So sticky! The more they grow and become their own tiny people, the more I want to hold on tighter and longer.
Last week we all came down with a cold and I literally wanted my mother over baby’ing us all. Which didn’t happen and just reminds me of that Vicks commercial that says parents can’t take sick days. I want to apologize for all the delayed emails and messages and everything else that has taken a bit longer to get done, I am hoping that this week we make a full recovery and we all get back on track. Today however, I took a much needed break outdoors with the munchkins and I brought my camera and the cutest little outfits along.
The ‘mom no pictures dreadful stare’ has begun.
Next week for #twintuesday I’ll be working on an end of the year mashup of pictures and videos of the boys that I LOVE or funny ones that never made it out of our camera roll. Stay tuned!
