Just. Can't. Do. It.

Monday, August 4, 2014




So, something happened this morning. 

For a good HOUR, these two didn't fight or whine ONCE! Unheard of, I say! 

We are in the middle of an "out with the old/in with the new" phase at our place as my parents have given us some of their things that they can't take to Hong Kong. (Oh, how I wish couches were included...someday someday.) 

I came across a set of clear decorative beads last night, and I thought they'd be great for practicing sorting and making patterns. I handed the beads to the kids this morning with a little cup for each. Wow. You would have thought I had given them the world's most amazing toy! They spent a good chunk of the morning playing quietly with each other, and S likes to teach her little brother to count. 

So, what I could I just not do?

Anything. I had plans to go out with the kids and my mom and do something fun. My kids go stir crazy if we spend too much time indoors, so very rarely do we ever spend an entire morning at home. 

But, today, they were playing so nicely and being so sweet I couldn't bare to interrupt them. As I was getting ready for the day, I could hear them playing and laughing. S would narrate, and apparently they went to the farmers market to get cupcakes, and then visited the horses and the sheep. And now, they're off in the sunroom apparently having a picnic. 

These days of them just being little are too short, and sometimes, to-do lists just need to be tossed out the window.
