What do you do when this is your reality?
(and by "you" I totally mean us...aren't you just so jealous?) (-:
You take lots of self-portraits on your phone with two little children who are obsessed with staring at themselves in the phone's camera.
(especially this one)
You built block towers so high and strong that even little brother can't tear them apart (and when he does, you built it back again...no matter how long it takes)
You experiment with new places to climb and express frustration when you get stuck.
You make the ooiest, gooiest chocolate chip cookies possible (also: you make up words)
with the proper assistance, of course (on the cookies, not the words).
It takes a pretty selfless child to sacrificially dirty their hands in cookie dough while bravely climbing up so near to the forbidden counter.
Someone's gotta do the dirty work...
...which includes sneaking a taste to make sure it didn't "go bad" before the family eats it. What a way to sacrifice yourself for the cause!
And last but not least, after you get a nice sugar high from your afternoon cookie snack, you lose yourself in a good book.
We're thinking warm thoughts over here today.
p.s. Thank you so much for your overwhelmingly positive response to my last post. I am working on replying back to each of you who took the time to reply to me. Thank you so much for your kind words of encouragement.
