Sometimes I wish I had someone video taping our crazy life here at home. There are so many funny times. By the time we were done with dinner we had a mandatory bath night for all occupants of the household under the age of 4. Scene: Avri is sitting on the toilet, Talmage is playing with his training potty and Mercedes is in the bathtub with mom bending over her cleaning massive amounts of rice cereal from every nook and cranny.
Avri: Mom, let's sing "Hercules."
Mom: (Singing) "I have often dreamed..."
Avri: No mom, you have to start with the muses.
Mom: You do huh?
Avri: We are the muses, goddess of art, protectors, namafmmn, heroes like HUNKULES!
At this point I burst into laughter, I could hold it in no longer.
Talmage: Mom, bucket head!
I look at Talmage, who loves to put buckets on his head, to see the bowl of his potty upside down on his head. But have no fear, for he has not actually gone to the bathroom in it for weeks.
Mom: Talmage, that is not a bucket. That is gross.
We proceed to get pjs on, brush hair and Talmage is running around yelling "New shoes!! New shoes!!" Here is a picture of the kids wearing their "new shoes." Notice there are no shoes in the picture. He has found a recent fascination with footie pjs and calls them his new shoes. Guess it's time to go buy some slippers.
Side note, the kitten is gone. Avri decided that it was too noisy and said "Mom, we should take Dusty back to those nice people. He is too noisy." Kendall and I jumped on the excuse and promptly returned the kitten to its owner, happy to be rid of the stupidity of our decision. Needless to say, we will not be getting a pet for a while.
