Ugh, Rainbow and Kate...we need a group hug (or a big bottle of wine), I think! =) You gotta love "guests" like that, eh? And, yeah, it seems whenever I leave any combo of the kids with my husband to tend to another one (or dinner or something) SOMEONE always ends up in tears and it's "he must be hungry still...can you take him?" or "I don't know why he's so fussy with me..." It always seems to be at dinner-prep time (a.k.a. combined melt-down time) that he asks, "Um, do you mind if I go downstairs and do some more work?" Uh, yeah, I do... At least in our case, he admits that he's much more comfortable dealing with Hannah than the boys--this is good, because my patience with her has become terribly short these days (and I really wish it weren't).
This will get somewhat easier, right?
Anyway, we have 2-3 foot drifts of snow in our driveway, all the highways and many of the roads around here are closed. But, here's what I've been doing with all this indoors time...http://i5.photobucket.com/albums/y19...o/IMG_2003.jpg
playing with my new Mei Tai that came in the mail yesterday, finally!!! Eli haaated being in it on my back, but I think he was also overtired, so he fell asleep almost immediately. Hopefully one or the both of them will warm up to the idea, since it was soooo handy to be able to carry both at once and still have my hands semi-free. They are both still on me, fast asleep, as I sit on the exercise ball and type.
