Floor Vacuums

April 22, 2014

The other day, Elizabeth went into the pantry after she got home from school and got herself a snack. She picked out a bag of dry cereal and was walking around munching on it. I was working in the kitchen and a few minutes later, she called me into the front hall, all excited. “Mama! […]

Ready for School!

April 21, 2014

Ryan is almost always awake when I leave to take Elizabeth to school, so he usually comes along for the ride. Since we don’t have to get out of the car to drop her off (her teacher comes out to the car and gets her out, it’s the best), I usually don’t get Ryan dressed […]

Car Car Shoes

April 14, 2014

This afternoon, I was carrying things up and down the stairs and I left Elizabeth and Ryan downstairs together. When I came back down, they had been in the dress up closet together and had both put on dress up shoes. Elizabeth had on “click clocks” and she had helped Ryan put on his “car […]

The Better Option

April 13, 2014

Tonight after dinner, I took Elizabeth and Ryan to the ice cream shop. We waited in line for our ice cream and then went to find a table. This store doesn’t have any high chairs, so I just sat Ryan on a real chair next to me. He likes that anyway because he likes to […]
