The joy's of toddlers and the LAST belly pic...


Sometimes I would really like to go into the brain of little children. The twins when they were about 18 months to about 2 and 1/2 went through a HUGE stage where I swear anything they touched was like a tornado hit it! So I've enjoyed a pretty mess free last year of course aside from the normal mess that little kids make. Until Tuesday... when Kylee decided it would be fun to see what squeezing a brand new bottle of baby lotion all over the carpet in the babies room and down the hall way would be like. As if that wasn't enough fun she then filled the bottle with water and dumped that all up and down the hallway and in the room! Caden came to tell me after the fact of course as we was with her the entire time this was going on, so he tells me! You can imagine how long it took to clean up, especially since getting down on my hands and knees, or trying to squat when your nine months pregnant is quite the task, and next to impossible if you ask me! But oh no that was not enough curiosity in one day for her, she somehow climbed up and got into the neosporin and emptied the whole tube in her hair and decided to spike the boys hair with it as well. Keep in mind neosprin is like pure grease, so after baths and bed I checked on the kids and they all still looked like they had REALLY wet hair, especially Kylee since she has the most hair, and I"m sure used the most on herself. So the next morning one of my friends suggested to try dish soap, a degreaser right? Well I will say that it was a vast improvement I scrubbed her head twice and did her hair and it only looked like I had put gel in it. So another tip from a friend and this morning a used vinegar and tada! She is now grease head free! So back to the main question, wouldn't be so fun to know what goes through their little heads as they do these crazy things that drive their parents CRAZY?! P.S. One of my friends seems to get a lot of pics of her kids' messes, I wish that I could take a step back sometimes to do the same, cause even a few days later it's not quite as bad, and I need to learn to laugh a little!


And last but not least, I had Caden take a picture of me, and let's just say I'm sooo done! Come January 1st I will be doing whatever it takes to get this little girl out! My doctor said that she might take is the week after the first since my blood pressure is higher than she'd like it... fine by me! I'm so ready to have my body back!

you should try to take a step back and take some pictures. we love those kids and probably can afford to as much as we do because we're just aunts and uncles and don't get to see them at their worst. can't wait for that baby to come so we can come out there and see her. talk to you soon.
