First sleepovers, lost teeth and sweet moments

Lots of fun things happening around here these days!  Here are the highlights.

Maren lost her first tooth on January 22nd! And another just last week.  Beckett is anxiously awaiting his first loose tooth...

And, Beckett had his first sleepover at Beavers!  He had a blast and can't wait for the next one.

And, finally, a sweet "twin" moment I don't want to forget...Beckett was sad on Friday and had a teary moment shortly before I picked him up from Excel.  Unbeknownst to us, he was brewing an ear infection so really wasn't feeling his best.  When we did our usual "round the supper table" questions, including "Who filled your bucket today", Beckett got up walked over to Maren and hugged her for coming to comfort him when he was upset.  Such a sweet moment!

In the thick of it.

An almost 9-year old and a pair of almost 6-year olds.

Life is busy, and there's nothing quite like it.

Wake up.
Get dressed.
Have breakfast.
What do you want for lunch?
Did you eat your snack from yesterday?
Where are your books?
Any forms due back?
Hats and mitts are in your bag.
Have you brushed your teeth?
Don't forget socks!
Time to get in the van!
Got everything?
Ok.  Have a great day.
Love you.


And I wouldn't trade it for the world.

There are days when I'd kill for a "kid-free" day and others when I'd give up every dollar in the world to freeze time.

Life is perfectly imperfect.  And I love it.

I've already won the lottery.  Now I just need to figure out how to spread out my winnings.
