Diligent Bathtub Cleaners



Diligent Bathtub Cleaners – 365, 313, originally uploaded by Fluttering By.

Today we cleaned the bathrooms (yes, a day behind for all you diehards). While the kids always help, today Marcus decided to add himself to the mix.

Little did I know that Molly + a pail of water in the bathtub + Marcus would equal something totally different than just adding the first two together.

It’s simple math, really, I don’t know how I ever missed it.

I am happy to announce that I not only have a clean bathtub as usual, but also clean walls, floors and children. Talk about synergy!

Good Golly, Miss Molly.

I saw the opportunity to snap some shots of Molly today as we were playing in my room, and I snapped away while I conversed with her as I normally do.

I thought I got a couple good ones, so I walked over to my computer and plugged in my camera to download them.

Shot after shot, I sat there in awe. Who is this little lady that appeared on my computer screen? Certainly it can’t be my baby girl…

The Nutcracker Beach Party

While we were in Target today buying some sheets, Molly discovered the nutcrackers. I turned away for a moment to decide on what color would match our quilt best (don’t worry, Thom was there watching the kids) and turned back to see that she had half of their supply on the floor.

She had paired them with "dates" and even had three musicians serenading everyone in attendance.

When I asked her what it was, she replied ever so matter-o-factly, "A beach party."

Molly’s had a pink puppy since she was a baby that Thomas has recently set his eye upon because, “it’s so soft!” so on Wednesday he got out his piggy bank and we went on amazon to search for one of his own.

He was over the moon when we found the blue brother to Molly’s pink puppy and (no so) patiently awaited his arrival.

Good thing we have amazon prime.

When did this happen?

Wasn’t it 60 something outside when we went trick-or-treating a couple days ago??

Isn’t it "autumn the leaves fall down, winter snowflakes abound."?

What happened to global warming??

(Yes, I will continue to put words to your expressions, Marcus, even when you start talking. You can’t stop me. So there.)
