Busy Morning

We had Little Gym class first thing this morning, but we ended up leaving early. Another mom had brought her little boys (too old for the class) and they were playing with cars against the wall of the gym. They weren’t causing any trouble, but Linlee adores cars. She also gets very fixated on what …

Too early!

In the predawn hours this morning, Rob and I were awaken to the sound of squealing, giggling and happy shrieks. Linlee was playing exuberantly in her room – at 4:30 AM! What was she thinking? It was still pitch black outside. The happy noises were certainly better than crying or screaming, but the effect was …

A girl and her dog…

Look how Linlee is holding Bailey’s tail. These two missed each other. We boarded both dogs while Rachel was with us and thank heavens we did. It was crazy enough with two, active, little girls in the house, but adding two needy dogs would have pushed me over the edge. However, about the second day …

Just Linlee…

We are down to just one child again. Rachel gleefully greeted her daddy this morning and Greg took her home to Anne, who was very eager to have her little girl back. I realized over the weekend when watching the girls side by side, that Linlee is a gentle, sweet, little soul full of contradictions. …

Hanging in there…

Okay people, I’m going to be honest and admit that having two little three year olds is really hard. I’ve heard so many people say that it’s not really double the work with two children. They are liars. Rob and I feel like we are running a marathon each day and our goal is to …

Getting the hang of this…

Yesterday Rob and I did such a good job of tiring the girls out that they went to bed without a peep and both slept through the night. Yeehaw! Everyone awoke well rested (including myself). It’s funny how our approach to each day has changed with the addition of one child. With just Linlee, we …

Big Zoo Adventure

Our trip to the zoo was a fabulous success!  This was actually a surprise, as we were very late getting there and it was apparent that most of Seattle was there also.  The girls were so sweet together and we all had a great time.  I didn’t end up taking any pictures of the animals, …

Breakfast

This morning I fed both girls breakfast and they were off happily playing when Rob came down stairs.  He poured himself some cereal and sat down.  Rachel came back to the table as asked where her cereal was.  Rob reminded her that’s she’d already eaten her cereal.  Hmm, she didn’t remember that and insisted she …

sleep

Okay, so last night was a disaster and it was my child’s fault. I don’t even have the energy to go into the details, but by eleven, I was beginning to freak out because Linlee would either scream at the top of her lungs in her room (and frighten Rachel into wails) or jump wildly …

So far, so good…

Being the mom of two three year olds isn’t so bad. We are still working on finding our rhythm, but actually, we’re doing pretty well. Rachel did wake up a few times during the night upset, but was easily comforted and went back to sleep. My favorite part of last night was hearing both girls …
