Cleaning Day

This morning I desperately needed to catch up on cleaning and chores around the home.  I was scrubbing the sink when I noticed how peacefully the boys were playing together.  I should have known better.

Minutes later Batman and Batman visited:

Thankfully, they were there to protect me while I cleaned.

But later, this little batman decided that the house was much too clean for him and insisted on painting time.

Little Gymnast

Emerson wore himself out at a friend's fun birthday party.  No fear in this boy.

Fire Safety

Elliott's been learning about fire safety in school and has taken it very seriously. We've made a diagram of our house and identified all of our escape routes...which made it very obvious that our options are limited from our bedrooms.  So we've been researching fire escape ladders and have decided on something like this:

When I showed Elliott the picture of the mother and son climbing down the ladder in their pajamas, he thought it was a very safe idea. But he had one question that was concerning him:

"When will they eat breakfast?"

Elliott is beyond hungry these days, eating multiple breakfasts and dinners.  Forget the scary dangers of fire- Elliott is just worried about food.

Emerson wanted to show off some of his artwork too: His carefully painted snowman.

Emerson has been going through an I-just-love-mommy phase. And I don't mind at all!
