No time to blog.
My days are filled with:
They never end.
I don't know how, but there is ALWAYS a stack of dishes.
Even if I do them before I go to sleep,
when I wake in the morning,
the sink somehow mysteriously filled with dirty dishes while I was sleeping.
It really is a magical feat.
I thought dishes never ended???
Laundry is the mother of all never-ending tasks.
I had the beast of all laundry mountains in the world on my bedroom floor last week.
I considered taking a picture to showcase the mountain,
but really, I would just shame myself into a hole if I showed you that.
It's no secret.
Our plumbing is poop.
My arms get a daily workout with the toilet.
Seriously, I plunge every day.
Please tell me your kids' rooms get to this point too?!?!
And the sad thing is that this picture was taken the day after I cleaned that room top to bottom.
All it takes is one playdate.
How is this possible???
And this leads me to my Sunday morning bathroom.
Tyler is in the Bishopric, so he jets out in the wee morning hours to church for meetings & the like.
That leaves me wrangling 3 live alligators to get out the door in our finest clothing & most beautiful faces, hair, & teeth before the church bell rings.
This is the aftermath:
And speaking of the live alligators,
aren't they adorable?
Their latest tricks include but are not limited to:
Rolling from tummy to back.
Getting fatter by the day.
Reaching for things.
Holding onto things for a bit.
Smiling like there's no tomorrow.
Sleeping like a rock star.
She's a genius I tell ya.
He's a hat loving gent.
Always sporting a lid:
Wearing the big boy unders
(& not just on his head)
Trust me, this was fully his idea.
I have been trying to tell him how soft and comfy diapers are that there's no rush to ditch them,
but he didn't believe me.
He wants undies.
However, there is nothing more adorable
than a pair of little squishy bunsies in undies.
He even stays dry for his naps!
He loves his sisters.
He really does.
This is all he needs for happiness right here:
& his hoop
Starting to read!
Such a self-motivator that girl is.
A couple weeks ago she asked me to sit down & help her read.
I was blown away with what she knew!
You go girl!
Celebrated her birthday!
You're right, it was in September,
But since I was laboring & prepping to birth,
we skipped school the day of Avy's birthday &
finally got to celebrate it in her class this past week.

Researches EVERYTHING there is to know about trucks.
Went to Sacramento for half the week last week for work.
Has visited EVERY dealership from here to Sacramento looking at trucks.
Has responded to EVERY craigslist add having anything to do with a truck.
Shows me EVERY craigslist add having anything to do with a truck.
Thank heavens he's so adorable.
dishes, laundry, plunging, cleaning,

And I love it.
Wouldn't trade it for the world.
