"What Are They DOING?"

Last night, after a few family board games, Husband and I snuck into the office* so he could show me some photos he's been working on. Have I mentioned that he's brilliant, photo-wise? He also started blogging **recently, but it's mostly pretty, pretty photos (the words come, too, though). Anyway, so the Kids were playing Christmas music on the iPod and dancing around the family room. Vigorously.

Very vigorously.

After a few minutes I wandered into the kitchen to pack lunches for today, and the dancing had morphed into an impossible-to-describe game of "leap over the rolling logs" at which point, Husband came through and whispered to me, "What are they DOING?"

I shook my head, shrugged my shoulders, and said, "I think they're exercising. But be quiet, they don't know it." The game continued until I started reading them "Midnight Magic" by Avi, at which point they all lay their sweaty selves on the floor and drew illustrations of the castello.

To my sistas of the small children, who feel discouraged by the daily-daily: This Too Shall Pass. It gets easier. And it's really a whole lot of fun.

*It wasn't quite as romantic as it sounds.

  1. Love, love, love the family photos on your hubby's site!

    And thanks for reminding those of us still struggling with the crazy life that is infant and toddlerhood how much we have to look forward to.

  2. Wow. Just wow. Those pictures are amazing!

    And so is this post.

  3. He's amazing, Becca. Wow.

    I love that all your kids settled down as you read to them. ;)

  4. Thanks. It helps to know it gets better (she says with a two-year-old wrapped around her ankle.

  5. There are no words to justly describe those photos, so let me simply say that my jaw is on the floor right now.

    And WHAT is with that rolling log game? Mine were doing that yesterday too! Maybe I should join them next time so that I can get in a little exercise...

  6. Becca, Your family is beautiful. They have grown so much. I am glad I found you blog. It almost like you are acrossed the street again.
    Love the pics


If you want to say it, I want to hear it. Bring it on.
