Took the kids to the park for the afternoon.
My two youngest swinging
Not pictured: Larry standing on the jungle gym with one finger waving in the air yelling, "Party rockin' in the hooouuuuse toniiiiight...everybody just have a good time!"
Lux waving at older kids and semi-flirting with an athletic toddler nearby.
Me leaving for a run this morning while Tod dresses kids. Came home and dragged all three to the gym where I couldn't figure out that smell (???)...me coming home to put her down for a nap and discovering throw up in her crib from the night before. Is my Mom of the Year award in the mail or should I pick it up somewhere? Or is this one on Tod?
Lennon, who likes to retell the story of every wound obtained. Today there were three.
The anti-abduction talk I had with the boys this week.
Me: A six year old girl was almost kidnapped at the park the other day (this is true). She got away because she screamed as loud as she could. If anyone ever grabs you, scream and kick and bite.
Lennon: Soooooo...if there's a stranger trying to get us we can break all the rules?
Me: Yes. And fight. Sometimes bad guys look just like good guys so if you don't know them, don't go with them. Even if they say they need help or have candy.
Lennon: They use the candy to get us into their cars!
Me: Exactly. Okay so Larry, if a stranger tries to get you into their car, do you go?
Me: What if they give you candy?
Larry: Then, yes.
The timeout halfway home because IT REALLY DOESN'T MATTER WHO GETS TO RIDE THEIR BIKE IN THE FRONT. WE'LL ALL GET HOME AND NO ONE IS BETTER THAN ANYONE AND YOU'RE BOTH THE FASTEST AND BEST FOREVER AND EVER.
Fancy girl at the park wearing a Guess denim jumpsuit with suede boots and a helmet that also had a tiara on top. She was probably 7.
My park outfit today. Hamburglar shirt with hole, pink pirate pants, and my slippers from Target ALTHOUGH the tag did say Outdoor/Indoor Use.
Because who am I trying to impress. I was the most comfortable mom there. Ryan Smart, I already know what you're going to say.
Oh, and no yelling - day four.
