A Little Diddy About Jack and Diane….

...except no Jack or Diane and really only a diddy about L. I’ll move on...

I am fortunate to have the flexibility to spend Friday’s (for the most part) at home and work when I can fit it in (not really work at home, but be at home and work). Anywho, I love being at home with the kiddos, it grounds me and I find myself looking back at the day laughing at the little things that I miss while I am working. Take for instance L’s attempt at a nap today. Here is how the first 45 minutes went (and she was the one who told me she was tired and ready to go night-night):

~ 5 minutes into her nap, found her in the spare bed, watching tv (with the fan and radio turned on)
~ 10 minutes into her nap, jumping on her bed
~ 13 minutes into her nap, in our closet playing with whatever she can find (leaving a mess for me to clean up)
~ 18 minutes into her nap, peeked in because it was quite; she had a stack of books she was reading (left her be)
~ 21 minutes into her nap (short books), in my room jumping on the bed (with T sleeping soundly on the bed as well)
~ 30 minutes into her nap, playing with block in T's room
~ 35 minutes into her nap dancing to Shrek music (all of a sudden the music got louder….)

She is asleep now, don't know why she would be tired. Thought about trying to take a picture of her sleeping – she looks so sweet. But I want the sweetness to last just a few hours so I can get some stuff done.

Me & L

The Best

My BEST picture of the 2 kiddos together. Not bragging....

10 Seconds of Faces

Ready, set GO:

No joking these pictures were taken within a 10 second timeframe. I am not sure where she gets her visual 'animation' from.

(the orange on her face was a sample of T-man's sweet potatoes, she is the taste-tester for our prince)

Long time, no blog....

Long time, no blog. I'd like to say I am going to get better at posting, but..... 2 kids, 50 hours work week and somewhat a of a life.

At a quick glance here is what has been happening.

My baby brother graduated high school:

L had a REALLY bad hair day:

An old fashion 'pool party' with friends:

Camping Trip:

L gave horse back riding a try (sorry the picture stinks, it was poorly-lighted indoor arena):

L decides to dress herself:

T tried sweet potatoes:

Gave potty training a try (I vote for diapers):

And tried YET AGAIN to get ONE good picture of the kids together:

So that in a nutshell is what has been going on with us. What's new with you?
