These are the days of our lives

*** DISCLAIMER *** I make my bed for no one, sorry, you are no exception!!

Not even 3 hours into today and here is plays out, just for you, in pictures and words. These are the days of my life. The one's I hope to look back on and laugh (not so much giggling going on at the moment;). The one's that I will miss when they are all grown (except for the laundry, really, nakedness should be the law). These are the one's you can never prepare for before you have children, although yours will never be like this (see post below on the things we say before we are parents).

Sit back, relax, be entertained and giggle, it's ok, inside I am giggling too.

But, if you find a few minutes of peace, quiet, solitude and cleanliness, please send them my way;)

It all started like this, a few (ok, 75 extra, details, details) extra minutes spent in our oh so comfy bed this morning. Now that we are all so well rested, the rest of the day should be GREAT!

Thing 1 apparently felt it took mommy to long to use the bathroom and start coffee this morning. In protest, her poor princess is forced to sleep on a cold, hard, surface! I pity her children;)
Before he can even be bothered with breakfast, Picasso, aka thing 2 MUST get to work. There is much to be painted, colored, drawn and splattered and really between the obligatory sleeping, diapering and mess making, there is very little time to do it all! Quick and stealth are the words of the day!
Nothing is immune as a canvas. Mom and Dad's new quilt wouldn't be part of our house if it was pristine!
Personally, skin is his favorite masterpiece, on account of it takes permanent marker a LONG time to come off. This way the whole world gets to see my talents!
He even managed to swipe big sister's forehead as she made a grab for the marker. When that failed we will just shout "Mom, J has a marker in your room"! For the record, Mom can be gazelle intense when she has to be!

Notice that big sister got dressed all by herself this morning! What not to wear has nothing on her!
Thing 1 decided that maybe searching for and finding clothes was maybe too much work! Just a diaper is the new dressed!Picasso is back. His second favorite medium to work with after permanent marker is food! There are so many ways to toss it, splatter it, spit it, throw it, slam it, squish it. Here's a sample of what he can do with peaches!
While mom is cleaning up peaches, we go play in our kitchen. Seems so nice, quiet, innocent. Until they all leave from here and you hear the bathtub water running.

Mastering the art of trio distraction, 1 has escaped with tea cup from kitchen and water from bathroom to create this gorgeous masterpiece. Is my bed not even sacred little monsters, I mean, people? And just think, it is suppose to be a place of love!
So, instead of cleaning this.....
or this........
Or this.....................
Mommy is doing this.......................
The sacrifices she makes for you her only reader is nothing short of commendable! Really!

Meanwhile we are doing this...............................

And this.........

We look like we are reading, but really we are searching for new trouble making opportunities, I mean adventures!
