I hope my child looks back on today, and remembers a Mum who had time to play
There will be years for cleaning and cooking, but children grow up when we are not looking
Cleaning and scrubbing can wait till tomorrow, cause babies grow fast, much to our sorrow
So settle down cobwebs, dust go to sleep, I'm cuddling my baby, and babies don't keep

Toddler Trouble Times Two!

Two toddlers + 8 hours = 4 very tired parents and 2 riled up two-year-olds.

We spent the day down south with June Bug's favorite gal pal.  It's hard to believe they're as big as they are.  If I could bottle that energy, I'd be a billionaire. And of course running around like crazy actually inhibits a nap. I'm pretty confident June Bug was snoring before he even laid down.

June Bug will surely miss his favorite gal pal, how could he not? She's too adorable for words and so much fun! It's crazy to see how much they've grown and hysterical to see them interact.  I know Lady Bug's sad she won't get to meet gal pal's soon-to-arrive little brother. They would have been besties for sure.  Though she is thankful for the celebrity-sized wardrobe that was passed on to her. I can almost guarantee if Lady Bug's wearing something cute, it started with June Bug's gal pal.

Of course June Bug found the "prized" possession in one of the many bins of girl clothes: a pink fleece Elmo hoodie that he insists on wearing even though:
A. it's clearly for a girl  B. it's waaaaay to small and C. it's 80 degrees out.

I will never, ever, understand the crazy devoted love my toddler has for Elmo. He drives me batty (Elmo, not my toddler...ok sometimes my toddler too). But that's another post.  Instead I'll leave you with pictures on how much these tiny tots have grown over the last year!
