Our picnic table!

When we are outside, the kids are playing. Sitting really isn't an option unless they are using the sidewalk chalk or sitting in the adult chairs. Oh, sometimes in their wagon & definitely sitting happening on the swings but you know what I mean. Right?

Hot weather is coming & that means early morning time outside b/c it will just be too damn hot otherwise. Yes, even w/ sprinklers it will be too hot after their nap. For this reason, I am trying to get them & me in the habit of going out at about 9:45. It is still cool & the mosquitoes, although ever present, seem to be a bit more tame at this time.

It just so happens that snack time is at 10 so this means snacks outside. The perfect excuse to get them practicing how to sit down at a big kid table & eat w/o getting up. They did fairly well although they didn't eat as much as they normally do. I have a feeling that will change once they get use to the new eating environment.

Now, I would have had some really cute pictures but somehow they got deleted. Not my fault. Ok, totally my fault. I don't know where the hell they went! Ah, poo.

Let me share some really cute pictures of the kids in bed w/ Daddy on Sunday morning instead. I always wanted the kids to crawl in bed w/ us on Sundays to watch tv. They can't exactly get in our bed since it is too high & they really would have been happier exploring the bedroom over sitting in the bed w/ us.

Maybe one day soon they'll settle down long enough to cuddle w/ us. Maybe.

Anonymous would die if she knew what Maddie has to chew on all day every day to help her stay calm and focused.

They look soooo snuggly in bed! Adorable! I hope they like their new table!

I'm surprised you were able to get them to stay in bed long enough to snap a pic. I try to get Aiden to snuggle with us when I don't really want to get up in the morning, but it's a no go. He's climbing somewhere the instant I let go of him!
