and leap into the ripe air

Alive

In Which Daddy Slimes Sissy

Daddy got slime for the kids--green for Bubs, purple sparkle for Sissy.

"Im my defense," Daddy says, "I slimed Luke first, but the consistency was different and it didn't stick in his hair."

(It all came out for Sis after 3 shampoos, by the way. Cashew butter was key.)

The Great Lotion Incident of 2014

Working crazy-hard today...I usually monitor what the kids are doing when they're supposed to be napping but not, but today left them to their own devices.

Until the sounds coming from their room were too weird to ignore.

After which, I went in and found...baby lotion, all over the kids, floor, beds, bathroom, everything.

I couldn't even be mad at them because otherwise I would have cried. I just put them in the shower and told them to stay there until I cleaned up. They had a great time in the shower (something pretty novel for them). I needed a break from work anyway. 

The lotion is no longer accessible.
