The next few nights she screamed, ear piercing screams I thought the neighbors would hear her, so I gave it back. My friend Laura told me to try cutting the very end off, which I did tonight. She kept crying, after looking at the monitor I saw she didn't have it, so I went up there and found it on the floor. I calmed her down and handed her back the pacie. She put it in her mouth for a sec, took it out and threw it me, shacking her head and saying no no no.....
so taking the pacie away is not going so well!!

I made the mistake of showing Kiley that she can watch Barney on the computer. Now all she does if run up to the computer, pointing and screaming "Bar Bar Bar" until you put it on! It reminds me of the scene in Big Daddy when the little boy always screams "Kangaroo" until you get so sick of hearing it you put it on!! So cute though to walk in on this the other morning!
Kiley enjoying her sucker much more than the game on daddy's lap!

In the parking lot, I got Cason out, who was soaking wet from his sippy cup that he took the valve out of. Go to get Kiley next, immediately realizing she has major poop, thanks to the third antibiotic she is now on for her ears. Checking the bag I see that there is only 1 wipe left, I try to put Cason back in his car seat, which is like trying to strap in a mad bucking bull, so I can change Kiley with only 1 wipe.
Finally in the library! All the other kids sat quietly on their mom's lap and listened to the songs and story's...Kiley and Cason? Cason was running around the room, on the stage, taking bean bags and throwing them in the trash can (surprise), then would stop in his tracks when he heard a song he liked and start dancing and clapping. Kiley wanted to be in the center and went straight up to the teacher and sat in her lap. When the teacher started the puppet song, Kiley kept grabbing all the puppets she had behind her bag and screaming at the top of her lungs...think she was ruining the song for sure!! Sometimes I do wish they were more shy! At the end we did a craft, which was making a turkey, Kiley took the eyes off of the turkey and ate them, Cason put the whole glue stick in his mouth, and got furious when I took it out. Maybe they are not ready for story time!!
We quickly left for the park after the little girl sitting next to us (although I was the only one sitting) started throwing up! After an hour at the park, I realized the expensive light yellow outfits were the wrong color for playground equipment..thank goodness for stain remover...or my mom who usually gets the bad stained clothes to work on! Parks are still hard (what isn't with 2 toddlers?). Always times when one of them gets out of my sight, which panics me. Today Kiley ran around the little potty house and Cason was in the middle of the high equipment, couldn't reach him quickly or leave him for fear of him falling, but also couldn't see Kiley! Not sure why I put myself in these situations....
Stop by Ginger's for lunch, seeing that I forgot to pack lunch for me (one reason I stay skinny I guess), then head home. Both fall asleep in car despite all windows down, radio full blast, and suckers in their hands. The problem? Car stops and they think naps are done! Which was the case for Kiley, who never went back to sleep! So another long day for me, with no break! My defiant daughter kept climbing the outside of the staircase tonight, which is extremely dangerous, and after 4 times of getting a (light) spanking and leading her to timeout, she looked up and bit my hand. Think I am in for it with her! wow
Paul finally gets home around 6:15; has a nice dinner waiting on him; helps me feed, bathe and put then to bed by 7:30. Then says "gosh they sure are exhausting"...I am very quick to give him the evil eye!!
But the exhausting days are all worth it when they run up to hug you, when you hear them giggle, when you see the way they light up when daddy gets home, and when you are singing them to sleep and they sing with you, all cuddled up in your arms. Wouldn't trade my days with them for anything in the world!! Another day in paradise!!
Celebrating Frank and Paul's b-day, first time the kids got ice cream, was a big hit except for the sugar before bedtime!
Playing with Luke in the front yard, the kids think he is a giant pillow and also love trying to ride him like a horse. Trees in front are red, yellow, and orange, so pretty! Love fall!

We had so much fun at Hunter Street's Trunk or Treat! Kiley picked up very quickly on the concept of holding out her pumpkin and getting candy, while Cason just wanted to run everywhere as fast as he could! Both of them loved the adults dressed up, especially the bear! Thank goodness Nana and Pops showed up from Florida just in time to help me chase them around!
