My day didn't start off so well...
This is what my child looks like when I get her out of bed:
Oh but it gets worse.
This is what the room looked like when I walked in:
In case you're wondering - that floor was clear last night!!
Oh, but you know it gets even worse:
This is above Rachel's crib so now I have 100% proof that Rachel is my Picasso. Nice though huh? Once again proving her talents and her NEED to draw - it's like she can't help herself. I mean she KNOWS she's not supposed to do this - she knows she's supposed to draw on paper and yet she continues to draw on walls, on herself and even the pack n' play:
If you can't tell that's a smiley face. Nice right?
Then it was on to breakfast:
Rachel was eating the leftovers:
After breakfast we play - Julianna is ever safety conscious (notice her knees - can you tell who else was involved in the nighttime fun?)
This evening Alyssa got to read with Uncle Michael:
Wondering what a normal day is like here? Here's is Kaitlyn's To-Do List for the day:
Can't read it?
To-Do List (the main ideas)
- play with babys
- swim in pool
- eat dinner (lunch and breakfast as well but earlier)
- draw (if time) color
- play with babys (again)
- go to bed
- play outside (before bedtime)
And that's it - that's all we do!
But I can't go and leave Caleb out - so here's my boy in front of Rachel's masterpiece since I have yet to tackle removing it:

Some more of her work:
Oh yes, they can get in and out of their cribs! Kirk actually has 3 toddler beds set up and waiting for them when we return home. It's much earlier then I hoped but Alyssa's crib was falling apart - it was Kaitlyn's so it was quite old and ready to go. We were able to find 2 matching toddler beds with mattresses on Craigslist for $50 - adding that to the one I already had for $30 and we have a room all ready to go for cheap :)
Countdown to toddler beds is on - 2 weeks to go!!
