My 12 year old son (who has special needs) just adores his little sister. He is taking an art class in school and proudly came home to show me the picture he drew of his new baby sister. I think it is absolutely adorable, looks just like her
Maveric says “wow my baby sister just let a huge toot out of her mouth”.
Lol this boy cracks me up.
All the kids love to hold their new baby sister, and she loves to be snuggled by them. BUT they are learning to wear long sleeve shirts when they hold her… or she tries to “EAT THEM UP” and they giggle and squirm cause it tickles! Since she is a breast fed baby she feels skin and she thinks it is time to eat…lol. Silly little girl, we sure do love her!
Who ever said you have to spend money to have fun, has never been around my family. Growing up on the farm there are lots of ways to have fun with no money involved. We went to my parents house Easter weekend to have an egg hunt with the kids and let the cousins play. My Dad then informed the kids that they could go find the the eggs on the farm and then he would let them throw them at his work truck.
My Mom and Dad normally collect the eggs from the chickens and eat them, but they were gone for two weeks and the eggs did not get collected. They needed to get the old eggs out so they could start fresh…. so off the kids went on a “real egg hunt”. Lifting chickens, searching threw the straw and loving every second of it as they found the eggs.
Grandpa even drew targets on the side of his truck for the kids to aim at. The kids lined up and the eggs began to fly, smashing against the side of the truck. They thought it was a blast…. I mean when else do you get the green light to smash eggs on a truck. My kids said it was the “best day ever” and think Grandpa is pretty amazing.
As always I am never very good at the “wordless” part…lol.
My kids had their science fair at school this week. They were SO EXCITED to show off their projects.
It is fun to see my kids enjoying learning so much! It was optional for them to take part, I was feeling stressed and it would have been MUCH easier to have not done a project. But after seeing how HAPPY there were, I am sure glad I let them take part in it.
I love my girls long hair… BUT long hair and busy girls also mean LOTS of tangles. SO brushing it out became rather dramatic each morning. They would try to brush it themselves but just could not reach the back, so “mom” became the bad guy each morning and night as we tackled those tangles. They both decided short hair was “cute” and would be easier to manage.
I have to admit it was hard to see it go, but they look cute as can be and it is NICE to no longer be the bad guy with a brush every morning. Bonus they absolutely LOVE it.
