My kiddos

A loud screech tests the strength of our glass windows, as my son darts down the hall with a flimsy white cloth. The ever coveted lovie is waved like a banner from his hands and his smile says it all.... I am bigger than you are. No matter, Miah has learned that this ear piercing sound will have mama running with panic to ensure her chicks are ok and all limbs accounted for. It does not hurt to know that the moment mama sees big brother with said lovie he will inevitably get a tounge lashing and the prized item will be returned. Now this happening once a day would test any ones mommy, but this happens no less than two or three times a day. Oh happy happy, joy, joy! To be fair Miah gets James only she is not so sly about it, nope she just walks up and clocks him in the head with a wooden block. The blow this week was hard enough to send my six year old into a total melt down and he still has a very sore spot on his head. I have found my self telling them to cut it out or I will stop the car, and on countless times told them to be nice to each other.... They are without a doubt brother and sister with all the ups, downs, and sideways antics they can come up with, but I LOVE IT, even when I want to crawl up and hide from it. Because when it is good it is really really good and the love they show each other is a once in a life time kind of thing that only siblings could share. When it is bad it is very rarely really bad and only boils down to child's play. The age difference between them is a blessing and a challenge all at the same time, but I would not change a thing and I am so grateful that they have one another. Enough rambling... here are a couple of the really good times ( which is what we have most of the time) of James and Miah today just hanging out waiting for me to go somewhere else with me camera.

They are so cute. Yea a clock upside the head may not be the best thing but every girl needs to know self or blankie defense.

Your children are incredibly beautiful and handsome. James has the best smile.

I am so bummed I did not get to go to LL on Tuesday. Too many senior moments over here.

Grace was wearing her Gymboree Panda shirt yesterday but it was the one that is black and has long sleeves that are black and gray striped.
