The joys of parenting






I decided I would share some of the things that go on at our house on a day to day basis. John and I find them rather amusing. Here is a list of some of the things that my little people have been up to recently: (First, I must preface this by giving a warning that we are potty training, so the following information is a little interesting--if you know what I mean) 1. Using fly swatters as spoons while they cook up something in the toilet (that day, Grace made it to the toilet 3 times--and all before 9am! Wow, go Grace!) 2. Savannah and Grace competing fiercely in screaming contests that seem to always take place in the car. 3. Grace devouring a chocoate popsicle because it was the only thing that made her stop crying 4. Savannah getting fixed up for the day--with Mom's shoes and make-up. Have you ever seen mascara look so good? 5. This is one of my favorites--A few nights ago, in a attempt to bathe the girls I got them both in the tub and began washing them up when Savannah looks up at me with a strange look and I realize there is a bright yellow stream making its way from her to the other end of the tub. So, of course, I got grace out and drained the tub. While the water was draining, I look over, only to see little Grace standing in a puddle of her own! And then, to top it off, when I reach for her to put her back in the tub, she moves, slips in the puddle and falls on the floor. Finally, after 2 accidents and 2 baths everyone was clean and ready for bed! Aren't kids great? Never a dull moment! :)

Fun times going down at the Morley's. Way to go Savannah on potty training! Hooray! Those are some great stories that must always be told.

You actually drain the tub when that happens? You're a better mom than I am..... :)

I can totally relate with you. Kylie and Renae are the experts of entertaining me with unexpected incidents. I love the picture of your girls. They are always cute. By the way, are you in town next Thursday? We will be visiting Utah next week and We would love to come by and say "HI".

Haha! Funny stories. I think these things happen to every mom! I am VERY impressed that you are potty training Grace! Oh, and I have to admit I don't drain the tub. I figure Miles sits in his potty during the day when it's in his diaper so a little potty in the tub isn't any different right? At least that's how I rationalize it...
