My crazy life...

Things are crazy around here. That's all there is to it. School started for me and the students return this week. But life at home has been a little less normal than lately. Allow me to share.

Ethan loves blowing up balloons. That's not too crazy, but he's driving me there with the constant, "Mommy, I can't do it!" whiny talk. And the weird feeling I get after blowing up a balloon fifty times is going to make me pass out one day.
Elijah is exploring all kinds of food. He wants EVERYTHING that any of us have to eat. And I mean every single thing. So meal time is a battle of wills to see who wants my food or him. Like this banana I wanted, but he had to have. Even wanted to eat the peel. He acts as though we starve him, but I can assure you that is far from the truth.

And we're getting closer to having a mobile child. Panic has set in. I find myself picking up small items all the time, afraid that he'll be able to get to it and swallow it. Note to self: baby proof the house...ASAP!

And the proud Daddy encourages his young to become a mobile being. He doesn't even know what we're in for.

And along with the food deal. Ethan is compelled to share all that he has. Even things I would prefer Elijah to not have. Like Oreo cookies. This occurred while I was driving home one afternoon. These boys are something else.

Speaking of being something else. Check out this face. Look guilty to you? Me thinks so.

Yes. Guilty indeed. I have this pound cake pan that has a separate bottom resulting in a huge bottomless bowl. Ethan loves to play with it. Sometimes he wears it on his head. I guess he thought Elijah needed a bowl hat too! I almost called the fire department, but sensible lady beat out crazy mommy and I got it off rather quickly with relatively few tears.

So, yeah, life is crazy around here. But we're loving it.
