THINGS I LEARNED THIS WEEKEND
When you're two, there's nothing much more fun than a water spray bottle. And it tastes good, too!
When you're one, laundry is still fun! And you just don't really know what a thing is until you put it in your mouth. (Fortunately BrenLeigh is just like a little chipmunk storing things away in her cheeks without any real desire to swallow them.)
There really isn't anything much better than that feeling you get when sliding down a slide. Okay, maybe watching HIM get that feeling.
What fabulous wonderful children these are! And what a full-time job! I can't believe all the stuff I've forgotten. I also can't believe how PEACEFUL my house feels now that the babies are gone. Wow, we've come such a long way. And it is really so different being an aunt than being a mom... it's like getting all the joy and amusement without worrying about teaching this or that, or considering the lifelong consequences. I like it a lot.
“Joy is the holy fire that keeps our purpose warm and our intelligence aglow.”
