Quinn & Ruby rock.
They are two and a half years old.
They are curious and
love playing together.
They are hard workers.
Ever moving and learning.
My days are spent running interference &
chasing them non-stop.
Picking up pots and pans (how did these get in the living room?).
Cooking for them.
Futilely explaining why the fridge needs to stay closed.
Saying "Drawing is only for paper."
Studying the ingredients in the crayon removers.
Cleaning crayon marks off the walls.
Supervising Quinn as he cleans crayon marks off the floor.
Slipping on the spot of "clean" floor later.
Paying a teenager to clean crayon marks off the heater.
Noticing that there are pen marks on legs and hands and deciding not to clean them.
Looking for Owl Blanket.
Looking for Monkey Blanket.
Looking for Boo-Boo.
Looking for Camey.
Looking for Monkey.
Singing Rock-a-bye Baby to Monkey.
Looking for Mario.
Racing Mario on the kitchen floor.
Rescuing Mario from under the Hoosier Cabinet with a broom handle.
Putting the broom in timeout on the porch after an "accidental" thwack to the head.
Looking for Quinn's shoes.
Looking for my own shoes and
helping them learn to share.
There are moments in everyday, however, when I find myself simply watching them in amazement, awe and ... yes, exhaustion.
God has blessed us so richly!
Here is a 34 second video of our lives in a nutshell these days.
