My day with the girls looks something like this:
I was trying to get a really nice photo for the Reece's Rainbow Homecomings page and this is what I get. I have one smiling angelicly, while the other makes a break for it.
I won't be distracted by phone calls today though. One of the girls put my makeup, lotion, toilet paper and telephone in the toilet. It is really hard when you don't instantly know who did it. Lera was looking the most guilty and Caelia was most willing to point at her. So the phone is drying out. And I am now listening for any movement in the direction of the bathroom. Previous experience has taught me that more things will find their way into the toilet before the fascination is over. To date, our kids have racked up the following tab, in regards to the toilet, 2 bottles of foundation, 1 lipstick, 1 bottle of powder, 2 cellphones, 1 cordless phone, a bathtub stopper, a small stuffed animal, a new toilet and Mom's diamond engagement ring. We tried putting a lock on the toilet but Caelia can open ANYTHING. Michael, however, cannot. Therefore, no lock on the toilet.
Today is also beautiful. Its sunny and the girls are determined to be outside. They are not willing to believe Mama that shoes and pants are required, especially since it is still around 35 degrees outside. Its supposed to be 50 later and mid 60 tomorrow so it should be just about impossible to keep them in until the morning chill has gone.
I did finally finish our Homecomings for Reeces Rainbow today. I keep thinking about how miraclous Lera being part of our family is...and it started with a picture (and a lot of help and info from Andrea). I was looking at the pictures on that page and I thought I would share a couple of our photos, so you can see how far she really has come.
