The days around here are sometimes routine. Most of the time I like it that way. Other times it makes me crazy. I am sure I am not alone in these feelings.
Yesterday we did school, Ruby made a dinosaur out of aluminum foil, Molly asked for 5 million snacks, we had a quick school meeting here, we ate lunch, we played outside. The thing that was outside of our routine was the way Mack decided to tee-tee twice in his undies AND poop like a grown man on my guest bathroom floor!!!!! Right beside the toilet. What in the world was he thinking?????
After I cleaned him up and informed him that he is potty trained, I sent all three kids out in the yard. It was best for all of us. About twenty minutes later I decided I could handle being around them again. I walked outside and started swinging. Mack came over and wanted me to hold him. It was his way of making sure I knew he was sorry, I think. I held him and swung him. He fell asleep. Right there in his SpiderMan underwear, baseball t-shirt and fireman boots while I laid a pink crocheted blanket around him. The wind was rough yesterday. It was a sweet moment. And a moment where I was reminded that this baby boy with two older sisters hardly stands a chance.
When he woke up, I decided to take some pictures.
He wanted to be the one taking the pictures. So I let him…
I had to stop him when all he kept taking was my mid-section. I don’t know about you, but a thirty something mother of three usually doesn’t have need of a picture of her mid-section. Am I right or am I right?
We tried some together.
He is so cute. I can’t help but forgive him for making me clean up behind his nasty self.
Let me leave you with Ruby’s new smile. It changes weekly! Her teeth keep falling out. Hilarious!
And though Molly hasn’t lost a single tooth, she still swears she has six loose teeth in her mouth. Ruby calls her out on it every time. “NO you don’t have any loose teeth either.” She is so kind and considerate, that Ruby. It doesn’t seem to bother Molly though. She is convinced she has six loose teeth.
The tooth fairy did a little better this time. He stole a dollar from his son’s wallet and put it under Ruby’s fairy that was sitting by her bed.
