I feel outnumbered often. My energy level is decreasing while Erika & Ainslee seem to be gaining energy by the hour. They are good girls, but they are 2 1/2 years old. They think they can do everything by themselves and often make a huge mess trying. The photo below was shot on mother's day. We had taken my husband to the airport, stopped to eat lunch, and headed home for a quiet afternoon. My MIL was still in town (that's her reading the paper). She was a huge help and she is always great company. I am looking forward to being closer driving distance once we move.
And then yesterday . . . .
This is what I mean by doing things themselves. I had left a purse on the closet floor. I thought it was empty, but the girls found a tube of long forgotten lipstick in a pocket in the purse on the floor. I was on the phone with my husband sorting out some tedious details and didn't notice how quiet it was. My mistake!! They thought they looked great with their "lips" on and didn't understand why I immediately grabbed a wipe to clean them up. Oh my. It was definitely a day when I questioned what I was going to do with THREE little ones. I guess phone calls lasting more than 90 seconds will be out.
