Jared: "Jennifer, where.........oh wait. Here she is.
I was gonna ask you where Elliott was". (She was in his arms)

Jennifer: "That's OK. A couple weeks ago I was in the car
& I couldn't find my keys.
Then I realized the car was already started."

Here's to what our brains are starting to become!!

Hasleton Quote

Grant: Kissing rhymes with missing, hissing & pissing.
Jared: Pissing?
Grant: Yeah, like "you're pissing me off."
Jared:That's not a good thing to say. I don't want to hear say that anymore ok?
Grant: OK.
Jennifer: Jared, you know where he hears that right?
Jared: Yup (we both say it)
Jennifer: Grant, you can say it when you're 18 years old.
Grant: OK, I'll add it to my list.

Thank goodness the battery finally went dead on that annoying toy.
"Apparently" it can't be opened to replace it with a new battery.

Sweet Girls

This is where I found Charly's snack the other day.
I have no clue if she was eating them out of here, or figured they were now gross.

Watching her princess movies.
I think Jared put Elles here.
Nothing like having your 2 year old watch your newborn.

Charly talking to Elles to cheer her up.

You pock up some new talrnts when yiu have a nww born babt.
Such as typung onw handrd.
I'm prdtyy good at it, if I do sqy so myswlf.

Seriously. They always want to be held.
And if I could have it my way, I'd hold 'em all the doo long day.
But alas, I have a litter of kids, so no sitting all day with the cute
& cuddly baby. Moms have tried so many different things to fix this.
I myself own a Snugli, Baby Bjorn,
some kind of new born sling & The Mother Wrap.
Wow, quite a collection.
But each of these requires some commitment to wear,
or space in the diaper bag, or only fit for a few months.
I love each one I own. They each have a different use.
But I've always wanted one of these guys.
(See below)

They are $50 on the website I've seen them on.
$34.99 on Etsy. But a friend of mine had one,
& she let me copy the measurements.
I fooled around with it, and figured out a super easy pattern.
Only $8 in fabric & 20 minutes of my time.
Yup, they are so easy it was only 20 minutes to make.
They are wide enough to use as a blanket,
have a curve to fit the kid's bum,
can be used as a sling (Elliott is too long already for that),
& I can also carry Charly around on my hip or back.
They are so easy to put on, and take up no space.
Sigh. I'm in love.
So yes, I folded laundry, cleaned the kitchen,
& other stuff, all with my cute wittle bebe on my hip.
She loves it. She gets to be held, & I get things done.
Woo Hoo for the Mommy!!

Dear jump rope,

I love to work out with you, but after 4 kids, my bladder refuses to co operate.
