A Lesson Learned

Every night the kids have to make sure the playroom is cleaned. Yesterday it was especially messy and they were in one of those moods where they were more inclined to play and make more of a mess than clean. I told them they had 10 minutes and if it wasn't cleaned they would be grounded.

The next thing I knew Cailyn was up there carrying on and crying and sobbing. I'd had enough by that point so I told her to go to bed early and that tomorrow she would be grounded and have to clean by herself. So today after school she cleaned and cleaned and finally by 5:00pm it was clean. Then she had to stay in her room for the rest of the night. As she was walking away I asked her if she learned her lesson. She said, "Yes, I learned not to cry like it's the end of the world." :)

the dishwasher

The moment I open the dishwasher these little monkeys come crawling as fast as they can, fighting over who gets to crawl in first!

Climb in

The other day I left the boys downstairs while I went to put away the laundry. When I came back down I found Owen playing inside the toy basket. Such a funny kid. :)

Cougars in training

Colby is starting 'em out young. :)

I jokingly told him I was going to train our boys to be kickers (since BYU's kicker is awful and my boys are likely too small to play football!). Colby got a little too excited about the prospect. :P

doing his part ...

Jacob's not playing in the garbage, he's just pulling out the recyclables and doing his part to keep the earth clean. :)

Landon starts preschool

I can't believe my little Landon is starting preschool! When I was driving him there today he was a little worried that he might cry. But when we got there he made a bee-line straight for the train table and seemed a little put-out when I made him come back and give me a hug and kiss. :) When I picked him up the first thing he said was, "Mommy, I didn't even cry!" He was so proud of himself. And then he proceeded to jabber the whole way home, telling me about all the toys he played with and what he ate for snack. I love my little Landon!!!
