Curse Of The Nintendo DS

Those of you with older kids know what I'm talking about. Those of you with babies, well, you just wait you'll know soon enough.

This little thing is the source of tons of fighting, issues and crying. Kaitlyn and Caleb now each have one so there's a little less fighting there but if one of the babies (mostly Julianna or Rachel) gets a hold of one of them DO NOT try to take it away. MAJOR tantrums will ensue.

So sweet, the lounging with the DS - trust me she's trying to play - the game is on and she is complaining because something isn't going how she wanted...

"Help me Julia, please!"

This is Rachel. When I walked in the room she was standing quietly playing with the DS but when she saw me her immediate reaction was to jump to the floor and cover the DS with her body. "You are NOT taking this from me!"

And since once again Alyssa was not part of the quarreling/temper tantrums I thought I would share a picture of her last night walking around with her towel on her head - she is loving hats and sunglasses these days so the towel is just so fitting and so darn cute :)

"Is that a ghost?"

"No, it's me!"

And I can't resist - this is the girl's after they got up from nap. Notice the hair! Cracks me up...

More "cheesing" practice - love the big smiles :)

Those girls are gorgeous!! Can my boys marry two of them? I don't care which two, we can work those details out later. :)

I expecially love the nap hair... my girls usually have a good case of it too! Your little cuties are just adorable!!

I don't think I'll be getting a DS anytime soon. That's all I need is another reason for my kids to fight.

I love the big messy hair too. The cheesy grins make it even better.

Nap hair isn't too bad, it's when they run their fingers through their hair after eating fists full of pudding.

Isn't it funny how they are so attracted to electonics!! They just truly seem to fascinate them.

The pictures are SO cute!!

Love it! The girls are looking so grown up! Anna loves her DS too. We save it for when we have to be out somewhere (like travelling or at a baseball game or restaurant) and it generally buys us quite a bit of time.

Yes I feel your pain of the DS...our two oldest have the DS and then the next to have gameboy's and the 2 youngest have leapsters.... so of course the 2 youngest always want a gameboy or a DS....

Your children are adorable!!!
