I had an appointment this afternoon that logistically did not work with work so I was at home with the munchkins this morning.
Anna, Em, Allie (don't worry, she does have a diaper on)
They can be fairly entertaining when they aren't clinging to my leg like little monkeys. For example, they were watching Barney (yes, Barney again) while I was in the kitchen cleaning up and attempting to scarf down some breakfast. All of a sudden, I hear the television turn off followed by Anna exclaiming, "I turned Barney off. I turned Barney off." Of course, Em was confused and asking, "What happened to Barney?"
It turns out that in my haste to corral all three into the family room after their breakfast, I had left the cable remote control within the reach of some little arms.
Anna and a random Baby
Em and Tiger
Do you see what Baby and Tiger are in? Those are dolly "sleepsacks/sleeping bags" that Grammy sewed for the girls. Grammy is extremely crafty and I keep telling her that when the girls are older, we should open an Etsy shop. I'm not as crafty as Grammy but I can sew.
At one point this morning, Allie was pushing two of the doll strollers together and said to me, "I pushing the twins." Now you have to realize that they hear the words twins and triplets quite often but we don't sit there and explain to them that twins are two. I couldn't believe that she knew this.
I did tie two of the strollers together but that lasted all of three minutes. "Stuck. Stuck."
Nap was a disaster (again) and I needed to leave for my appointment so Grammy was left with an un-napping Allie. She told me that when Em and Anna awakened, Allie fell asleep on the couch. She took this picture for me. (Note to self: need to write a post regarding toddler sleeping arrangements.)
The girls have been abusing the M word lately. MOMMY. It's Mommy this and Mommy that. Even if Daddy and Grammy are here, they want Mommy to do everything. And I can't. So it's a bit frustrating. Tonight, all six of us made a quick trip to the grocery store. We had the girls sitting in two of those shopping carts with the little car in front. There were cries of "Mommy push" coming from both carts during most of the excursion. At one point, Grammy stated, "We need to clone you." Wouldn't that be wonderful? Think of what I could accomplish!
I'll end this post with examples of what your kids may look like after consuming those little cookies with chocolate dippy.
