"A mother's love for her child is like nothing else in the world. It knows no law, no pity,
it dares all things and crushes down remorselessly all that stands in its path."
~ Agatha Christie

Cool Yule

I think this may be the last, finally, the last Christmas-related post.

Picture, oh Picture!  Where were you 4 weeks ago?  I searched for you, I fought for you - I begged and pleaded and bribed for you.  But you were nowhere to be found.  Until last week. Too late for Christmas cards, but still in our memory banks and photo albums...and blogs.  

Bathing, diapering and dressing 3 kids requires a staggered assembly line.  I give baths to all three at once, letting one go to Mike at at a time.  He takes the first and I work on the second. Then he lets the first run around free while he takes the second and I work on the third. That means a baby/toddler is running around the house free with both Mommy and Daddy's hands full.  I think they are starting to recognize the sheer potential of that fact!

This night, Alex was first out and she found the sunglasses we tried to keep on them over the summer to no avail.  And during winter, in the house, at night...she puts them on and walks between the rooms that Mike and me are in, giggling with glee - walking into the door frame on the way out of the bathroom!  Not hard enough to hurt, but hard enough to bounce her off and stagger like a little drunk girl.  I was laughing pretty hard, and so was she.  

After bath, when all three kids had caught the fashion fever, we plopped the hats they wore in last year's Christmas picture and placed them in front of the tree.  Instant Late Christmas Picture!  Hope you had a Cool Yule!

*Muaaah* Baby!

Since they're wearing sunglasses in winter...does this mean they'll be in leggings & mittens in July??
