Literally, seconds of sanity

Oh sweet child of mine!
Yes, the one sweet sweet child that's currently eating (yes, EATING) the color pencils. It seems as if we have 1 minute of sweetness and then 4 minutes of "REALLLY?!?!"
It wasn't even 10 minutes ago that I heard a weird noise. I call out "What are you doing??" She responds with "brushing my teeth, Momma." Then I heard the toilet seat hit the back of the tank and a toothbrush plunged into the water. Fabulous!

I've started (just this week) to walking in the morning. I've found that if we take a least 10-15 minutes, it burns off enough of Little Chickie's energy so she will nap at an appropriate time. (meaning not while I'm cooking dinner or 1 hour before bedtime) I have ample benefits from our morning walks...extra energy, exercise, and a napping child. It's a win win win ;)

Today's walk wasn't as long as what we've been doing. Probably because Little Chickie was tired and wanted Mommy to carry her. Carrying a child while walking briskly burns more calories, right?! 

And for your enJoyment, here's a recent snapshot of the kiddos. To get the big kids to cooperate, I promised they could play the Wii if they'd sit for a picture together. See my results! Fabulous
