When it comes to mothering a 2 year old and a 1 year old, there are days when I’d like to pull my hair out. There are moments like this morning when it was time to leave the pool and Morgan screamed bloody murder because she didn’t want to leave, that I want to scream bloody murder myself. Sometimes when the fit pitchin’ starts I want to pitch one right with them. But there are also those moments that fill me up with such a love and tenderness towards these two. This afternoon after their naps they were playing in Morgan’s room when I walked in to find two “pirates”. I didn’t quite recognize them as pirates but I was quickly informed that they were both dressed up like pirates. Paiger Raiger was very patient and wore her costume long enough for me to snap a few pictures. I sat on the floor, took pictures, and soaked it all in… oh, and laughed really hard. Last night when we were in the car we asked Morgan if she wanted to stop by GiGi and PopPop’s house and she said, “I don’t see why not”… it’s those precious little words that she puts together that I hope I can remember and if I can’t… well, thank goodness for the blog. I know they’re my kids but I hope they make you smile.

    They are both too cute and yes they do make me smile! I promise I will post more preggers pictures on the blog. Carlton is playing with the video camera as I type so I’m sure there will be a preggers video soon.

    Too cute! Don’t you just love how kids remind you that life should be more simple than we make it?! Hey, we’re going to be in Dothan over Christmas. It would be so fun to see you guys – Elise is 21 months so I bet she would have fun with your girls.
