Bald is Beautiful

Andrew was helping me put away laundry and here's how the conversation went:

"why doesn't Daddy have hair?"
"well sometimes when people grow up they lose their hair."
"and then they cut it?"
"well daddy shaves his entire head now but he lost his hair."
"but not me and you, right mama?"
"not me but I'm not sure about your hair, honey. your hair might fall out like daddy's when you grow up."

Nasty Dirty

My boys go to a preschool/daycare where they believe that "kids should be kids". For my three boys, that translates to playing in/sitting in/rolling in/eating (?)/pretending to swim in dirt. When I pick them up in the afternoons they are so dirty that you literally can not tell what color they are wearing. They are NASTY DIRTY.
Tonight I had to let the water out of the tub and start over not once, not twice, but THREE times.

So that left me wondering, how young is too young to shower??

Then I had a great idea for an invention!! A plastic shower curtain that has two arm openings/sleeves for a mom to stick her hands through to wash her kids.

Happy Birthday Boys

April 10th we celebrated two very special boys! Believe it or not, Andy and John are 4!!!!

I wonder if their birthday will ever roll around when I do not think about the way these boys came into the world. I will probably always be that embarrassing mom crying at their birthday party when my memory takes me back to the day they were born. Beautiful then, so tiny and fragile. Beautiful now, so vibrant and energetic. I can not wait to see what the next year has in store for these two!

They have come so far..
