Life is still pretty grand this Jan. 2011
I have been watching Sage the past few days (Sage is Tucker's cousin) She is basically same age as Arli. Such a blast to watch the 3 kids play together!
Watching over 3 kids hasn't been much different than 2 these past days. The only difference is.. bigger mess. And Bigger mess because Arli and Beck want to show her all their toys that they never play with.
It's a grand ol time.
I'm sure whats going through their head is "Oh, my mom, she cleans this place like 3 times a day.. this mess is Gooooood!"
It is also nice to know that Arli isn't as behind in speaking as I had thought. Based on Sage and another girly I watched last week, Arli is just fine. But I must say, Sage has some mad sentence skills.
During Sage's nap today, well not much napping today. I thought I lost Beck. I literally could not find him anywhere.. I kinda started to freak in my head. But that punk loves to find amazing hiding places. So part of me was still sane. I continued to look for him.. as I got closer to the room Sage was in (in a playpen) I heard giggles. I opened the door and there he was! I was sneaky and quiet so I got to see the guilty man in action. He was in the playpen with Sage, criss-cross-applesauced right across from her. And he was swaying his body one way, accompanied with a weird funny noise, and then the other way. And she was just giggling.
I was just like.. "HUWHAT?". I had him get out and go on his way.. But man it was so hilarious.. What the heck. The boy is a big boy. He knows he wasn't supposed to be over on that side of the house.. let alone in her playpen. holy moly.
Then I hear Beck and Sage playing in the kids' room. laughin, havin fun. But I didn't hear Arli's laugh. Only her yell from another room. I asked Beck where she was. He replied "She's in the cages. I locked her in there."
Uhhh .. "HUWHAT?" I found her in the coat closet, inside the doggy crate, and yes, locked.
When I tried to free her from her doom, she got upset with me! Yes, this is typical Arli. Apparently I wasn't supposed to touch anything, and leave her there. So I did. Don't worry, it's not like there was anything in there for her to get hurt.
And in all honesty she was probably safest there.
It's been a fun time having Sage. A bit more energy in the house. Will it go back down a lil when she's not here tomorrow and so on? Kinda hope so. At least until it warms up outside, go somewhere to exert all that new energy.
