I was nursing Penelope in the back bedroom the other morning and I could hear Max and Zoey talking. I knew from what they were saying that they were most likely in the kitchen getting into the candy.
When I came in, I came quietly so I could watch them.
While I was watching them, Zoey came up to me right away, but Max was so into the bowl of candy he didn't notice me. He was too busy trying to pick out what he wanted and fit it into his greedy little hands. He put his candy on the ground, put the bowl back on the counter, put all the candy back into his hands and started to walk out before he noticed me.
He says....”oh hi, can I have some candy?”
I said "no, you can have some after lunch."
He looked at the one piece he had already unwrapped and said. "Please, can I eat this one?"
I said "No, you can have it after lunch."
He then quickly shoves the piece into his mouth and chomps it down...
I said “You get no more candy today. You just ate yours.”

After Max had seen me nurse Penelope a few times he asked me what I was doing. I said I was feeding her. He asked what I was feeding her. I responded with mommy's special milk. This is the conversation that followed....
"Why do you have Milk" asked Max.
I replied "God gave Mommies milk to feed babies"
He thought and had a serious look on his face and then said "I think God should give Daddies milk too!"
"I agree!" I chuckled.
Share the duty. That would be wonderful!

Max and Zoey were bathing together today....and... like little kids sometimes do, Zoey pooped in the bath tub. I hear "Mom! come here!....Zoey just poo pooed in the bath!" As I'm cleaning everything up Max turns to Zoey and says "Zoey, that's Pa-Scusting! Don't poopie in the bath EVER again!" She grins at him. He yells to her "it's not funny Zoey, it's Pa-Scusting!"
He's right, it is Pa Scusting. But As he was so upset with her, I was trying hard not to laugh at him too!

So I started making Halloween costumes for Quinlin many moons ago because I enjoy being creative, seeing what I can make from my imagination, and I'm super CHEAP! I didn't want to spend the $20- $30 for a costume and I thought I could have fun making her one and also save a bunch of money. Every year since Quinlin was about 3, I have made her Halloween costume. Then Max came and of course I made his too.

I said "Max, don't climb on the chair any more....its breaking"
Max replies..." but I want to climb up there"
I go get the blue crate and say "use this to climb up there"
"But I want to climb up the chair" he says
I say "you can't anymore, its breaking"
"But I want to"
"I don't care, you're breaking it.... use the blue crate"
"I don't want to climb up there that way; I want to use the chair"
"You can't", "but why", "it's breaking", "but I want to"...
I'm going round in circles with a three year old... I think I’m going cookoo

If any of you are Twilight fans, then you know that Forks, WA is the mecca for all things vampire/twilight. Some great friends of mine, who are HUGE twilight fans, invited me along for a weekend at Forks to check out all the sites. Of course I brought my camera.... and at one of the stops, La Push Beach, I took the opportunity to feed my need to take some photos that Erik and I could have a lot of fun with. I posed the girls in vampire fashion, then when I got home, Erik and I played around with different looks on photo shop to see what we could come up with. Now, those of you twilight fans know, that the vampires in twilight are depicted as very appealing and beautiful, unlike other representations of ghoulish vampires. So that is why here, you won't find them all gory and ghostly, but more like Stephanie Meyers describes in her books.
This is Laura....
