Rain, Rain, Go Away...

Rain, Rain, Go Away...

Five days.  Five straight days of rain.  What's a mom to do with two little boys who beg to be outside every single second of the day?  Well, that mom laces handsome (not pretty) necklaces, let's those two little (naked) boys eat whatever their little hearts desire for lunch and breaks out the finger paints (escaping a trip to the ER because one little boy thought he would eat the paint).  That's what this mom did today- and, well, that's what we've been doing for the last five days being as we are being held hostage by Mother Nature.  On a lighter note, as you will see in the photos below William is now eating with utensils.  This "I wanna do it because Michael is doing it" has started much sooner than I was anticipating.  Most of the time it's cute, but sometimes it isn't.  For example, today William wanted to walk up the stairs like his big brother.  William doesn't know how to walk yet.  Do I need to fill you in on what happened next?  We're ready for a little sunshine in these parts.

Oh, and how could I forget?  We built a fort, too.  The boys were in it for three hours.  Didn't move.  It also happened to be where Michael ate his dinner- Chez Michael's as we now call it.  He wanted to sleep in it, too.  Had I not needed a little couch time at the end of my day I might have let him.
