Things going through my mind...

...right now.

Do I dare follow through with my plan to take all the children shopping in a couple of hours? I guess if I wear one of the babies, put the other in the back of the stroller and Luke in the front, it should go ok. Julia always hangs on to her "special spot" on the side of the stroller so I don't have to worry about her. Luke hangs on to his spot too, but I can't guarantee that a toy firetruck or a picture of an ice cream cone wouldn't tear him away from us. And, if I bring enough Cheerios and raisins, and bring our packed lunch I should be able to combat any issues with low blood sugar levels. I think we'll try it. The hardest part might be keeping from being blown away in the parking lot.

Will I ever figure out which of our 13 planted pots of seedlings are which? Last week during a mid 60 degree day, we moved our trays of sprouts from our kitchen on to our deck. The wind picked up and next thing I know, our labels are blown across the yard. If you remember right I am not a "green thumb" type of person, but aspire to be someday when we live on an acreage, so your typical pepper plant could easily pass as a blue perennial to me.

How soon can I get a child lock for our refrigerator/freezer doors? Luke has become a frig fanatic.

How fun will Friday 7:30a-Sunday 5p be? It's the annual Multiples Convention hosted by the Fargo group this year. A bunch of us girls are driving up together for a great mini-vaca of shopping, pampering, sloooowly enjoying meals that we didn't prepare, dancing, prizes, sleeping in or getting up early, leaving our breakfast table without having to clean up...whatever we want. Hallelujah!

How cute is Hazel? A couple of days ago she figured out how to climb the two steps out of our sunken livingroom. Once she gets up to the wooden floors she giggles and takes off. She really thinks she's sneaky now.

What do you think?

You go shopping...and then when everyone looks at you like you're crazy you can chalk it up to life experience! And then if that's all you accomplish...that's HUGE! Your weekend sounds A-MA-ZING!...I'm jealous! And your children are in fact adorable! All good thoughts....

So now that I know you are shopping. HOW did it go?
The plants...you soon will tell. It's kinda fun adding some mystery spice to it...you'll have to be patient to find out what grows in.

That you're awesome!
And I don't know how you do it. Having my TWO in tow works my nerves, so you totally rock in my book!

O yah, the labels on your plants?
Just make it up, the kids won't know. That's usually what I do. ;)
