Yesterday was my day to watch the boys…This one was trying to open my car door, while #1 was putting cones out in the drive so I would see they were playing there….then they both helped me get my sun visor in place…In fact…they are so helpful no matter what we do…shopping is a breeze as they assist with taste testing dessertsselecting the best lobster (which they do not realize people plan to …. uh…eat…so our little secret…wink wink)..and check out…mind your feet, please…Yesterday we had a little more taste testing…post nap…which explains the hair…and a vocabulary lesson where Emmett went around teaching me words like…f – r – o -g…at least I think that is what he said.
Lola: Is this your shirt? Graham: Can’t you see how LITTLE it is??? (apparently I couldn’t)
Lola: What bottoms go with this pajama top? Graham: “The same as Emmy’s!” (Emmy’s were upstairs in his drawer, by the way…)
Lola: Is THIS a pajama shirt or a regular shirt? Graham: Does it LOOK like a pajama shirt?(well…kinda…that’s sort of why I asked….)
Lola: Can you set this stack of washcloths over there? Graham: Look what I can do! (climbs over all the folded laundry in order to roll back over it…taking most of it with him…)
So, young mom’s…if you wonder why you are exhausted, frazzled and feel like you are walking backward on an upward escalator, I will remind you…there are forces working against you that are trying desperately to “help” you…you are amazing! Hang in there…laugh when you can…cry when you must…and keep your mom on speed dial!
