It started out a typical day


The day started out like any other.
A lot of play, which included some drawing.

Then we had to make a quick trip to the post office.
She is so cute steadying herself with her arm in the air.
Then she got a bit distracted by her Gator bear.  Yes, she was trying to put a doll dress on him to get him ready for the post office.  Seriously, the dress is about three times the size of the bear. 

And yes, he did go inside the post office with us...and also got a sticker.  After lunch, we typically swim in the pool.  Recently we purchased Caleb some flippers to scoot around in the water with.  Well, Madeline insisted she needed a pair too.  So her pair arrived in the mail yesterday, and she promptly got in the box...nekked.  She's a hoot.
The lighting was horrible in the kitchen, but I was afraid to ask her to move because I already heard the box starting to split.  
After swimming quite a bit and playing some more, it was time for dinner.
I made the kids chicken nuggets and onion rings.  Well, wouldn't you know that when Caleb used his teeth to open the ketchup container, his tooth fell out!
I knew it was loose and would fall out any day.  I guess he decided that that day was yesterday....exactly two months to the day that his first tooth fell out.  Funny little tidbit.

Anyway, lately I have been insisting that the kids spend at least 20 seconds at the sink when they're washing their hands.  And to help ensure that 20 seconds remains 20 seconds and doesn't morph into 3, I told Caleb that I wanted him to count, "1 Mississippi, 2 Mississippi, 3 Mississippi" and so forth.  Well, last night, as he was washing up before dinner, I heard him counting, but it didn't sound quite right.  So I walked closer to the bathroom, and this is what I heard, "15 Wisconsin, 16 Wisconsin, 17 Wisconsin" etc...well, when you can't remember what state your mommy told you to say, then just pick another one!

How funny! I guess he picked Wisconsin because it has many syllables? Sounded good. Maybe he started something new.

I have no idea what you're talking about bad light in the kitchen! The 1st one is gorgeous with Madeline's face in-focus but the rest blurred. Which is good considering the nekkedness -- I'm always weary of who may be looking at kid's photos online. Ugh. Glad Caleb only lost a tooth that was ready to go, and not an important tooth. That might have been a painful trip to the dentist. And how cute is he to count with "Wisconsin"! Even I don't wash my hands for 20 sec. Thanks for the reminder! The Happy Birthday song should work.

My girls try to put huge clothes on their babies and stuffed animals, too. How funny that he substituted a different state. I love it!
