Seeing Double

Following Anna and Jackson's adventure with twins.

Saying “cheeeeeese” up in our neighbors swing set. Emma enunciates it well while Jamsion draws it out literally 5 seconds. Too cute.

Hiding under the kitchen table because “a bear is coming”. Emma said the bear was crying so we wondered why & they thought he was hungry, BUT neither wanted to share their ice cream. So they’re eating it all up (the table pedestal is delicious ice cream). Then we came out from hiding to use our binoculars to see the bear coming. Emma would crawl to the back of the large club chair with Jamison following then they would come back fast & Emma would say “efverybody get close”. I like any game that involves mom getting snuggles. Their imaginations are just so vibrant.

A great dinner of spaghetti and Ritz crackers means ice cream for dessert. Also all brought to us because Monday is a school day so it is also a bath day, which means pasta with Bolognese sauce is almost always on the menu.

Put the kids down for nap & heard Emma yelling. Saw on the monitor she was standing at the rail with her hand out. Something told me to go check on them & see if maybe a blanket was dropped. Nope. Emma informed me of how my help was needed as she said “poop!” and showed me what she had scooped out of her diaper. What?! She has never done this. Not the way to start 3 days and 3 nights without dad. To add insult to injury I have changed 4 Jamison poppy diapers and 2 Emma poopy diapers since I got them from school. That’s 2 hours so a dirty diaper every 20 minutes. Please oh please let this be the first & the last time they reach into their diaper.

Playing with our handmade kites.

Hanging out with some of mom & dad’s best friends. Usually works well because we both have two kids and “get” what dinner time can be like. Bikes and backyard before dinner then blocks and artwork after.

Walked to a playground two neighborhoods over, and had a great time. Both kids did well holding onto this zip line type thing and clearly you can tell Jamison LOVED it.
Then a funny thing happened. A family we know from our neighborhood showed up. The kids played, the moms made plans to hang out, dad’s exchanged numbers & we walked each other home. Dating family-style.

Emma finally really wanted to do ballet in her ballet skirt. She actually has really quality looking ballet skills. Amazing what Tylenol and fever relief can do for her.

Snuggled up in cozy towel after a shower with Momma. Thought she was better, but had sick eyes this morning that we thought we’re tired eyes (Jamison woke at 5 am). BUT Emma just woke from nap with a fever just under 103 and a few cries & burps made her throw up. We are dividing & conquering: dad upstairs with Jamison watching iPad and eating pretzels while Emma is curled up on me watching Daniel Tiger.
