So, it's hot in AZ. Like H.O.T. And despite what others may tell you, it's hot for a very long time. Like from May-Oct. I am SO tired of the heat- like I'm over it. But there isn't much I can do- so this is what we do inside ....
We look at ourselves in the mirror.
We have friends over to play. This is Talon and he looks SO cute in this pict!
We try with all of our might NOT to take naps
(this is kind of a hard picture to see, but he's sitting with his head leaned against the crib)
We (try to) learn how to share
We watch TV for 3 seconds
We pull every toy out of the box and every book off the shelf (at least 3x/day) then climb into the bucket. Then realize we don't know how to get out of the bucket.
We play in the cupboards
We teach ourselves how to eat with a spoon
Later.... we eat the food on the floor that didn't make it into our mouths during lunch
We let girls beat up on us
We entertain ourselves while mommy's ignore us at OUR play dates
We test Mom's patience when she tells us not to touch the TV
Then, for the hardest part of the day...... Sometimes (while Mom is trying to make dinner) we have to barricade ourselves in the family room to keep us from crawling into the kitchen and begging for food or getting into all the drawers and cupboards. We do NOT like this!!
A little while ago, a lady in our ward (who does not have kids) asked me what I do all day to keep busy. I was a little put off by the comment especially from a grown woman, but I guess I can't get that upset b/c I used to think the same thing; "What do stay at home mom's to all day!?" I won't get on my soap box very long on this one- but I would like to say that I simply enjoy playing and spending time with Owen. He makes me so happy and his little personality is so dang fun. Don't get me wrong, I LOVE nap time too, but I do genuinely love to spend time with my kid.
