Today, my babies ran me ragged. Not by doing anything especially naughty or wild, but just by being two young children in need of constant supervision and care. I've got about 45 unanswered emails in my inbox (sorry if you're among that pile), I haven't even started on baby gift thank you notes (sorry again if you're the sender of one of the yet-unthanked-for gifts), my to-do list grew instead of shrank, and I've been meaning to cut my toenails for days. It was a good day, don't get me wrong ... but just a very (very very) tiring day.
Because I'm unable to come up with anything creative or inspirational or even semi-coherent to blog about ... here's our day in pictures.
The Mister ate his lunch neatly and obediently, as usual.
... until she realized the mom-arazzi was all up in her business.
Anderbug had a great time with his new tub crayons ...
... which I bought against my better judgement, because it seems less than wise to teach a kid to scribble upon walls (tub walls, but still - they're walls all the same in the mind of a toddler). I'm sure I'll be cursing this purchase one day when I'm repainting the living room wall to cover his "artwork".
He decided the green one tastes best. (Take a close look at his teeth.)
V fell asleep in her snowsuit and knit cap while we were out walking, and I just let her hang out in her snowsuit and knit cap all through A's dinner and bath time because taking it all off would mean waking her up. (And before you even ask, my midwestern BFFs, no, it wasn't snowing or even all that cold. But it was breezy and she's an itty bitty new baby and I'm a little crazy.)
Anderson helped Vivian accessorize after his bath. He likes the hat. Vivi looks unsure that this is actually helpful to her.
The end. Tomorrow is Saturday. Which is followed by Sunday, which is J DAY! Which is "mommy showers without an audience" and "mommy eats with two hands" day! Hallelujah!
