trial run.

I've always said I wanted to have three kids. Today, I get my chance to try. The delicate balance of testosterone in this house has shifted. We're watching 2 boys for a friend. Claire is loving it. She fought me hard at naptime this morning, not wanting to miss out on the fun with the big kids, but mama prevailed. We got Carson off to preschool, a big-fat caffeine injection for me on the way home and plan to get outside as much as possible this afternoon. Already, I can tell see some subtle differences between two big boys and one tiny girl (at one point, there was a pair of ninja turtle undies on my living room floor). It should be fun. I'll post highlights of our adventures tomorrow.

How cute. Boys are crazy. You are a trooper.

A test drive is nothing compared to that new car smell. Get my drift? Once you have one all the rest are easy.

Alida, you are too funny. It turns out the challenge of yesterday wasn't so much about them being boys as it was them being older (and able to ask whywhywhywhywhywhywhy??? and can I have another pushpop???? all day long). Really made me appreciate spending my days with a pre-verbal kiddo. :)

Oh my God!! Isabela has hit that Why, why, why??? stage. It's driving me batty. But why? Because even after I give a detailed answer, she asks, you guessed it, "WHY?" It would be kinda cute if she belonged to someone else. I'm glad you survived and it seems got a little training too!

I'm looking forward to the update on how the trial run went, but I'm assuming you are still recovering?
