Playing quietly


Reuben had a hard day yesterday. He was not a happy camper. He screamed and cried and hit for most of the day.

Mommy had to finish her last day of work. Mommy had a head ache from all the screaming and crying and hitting.

Reuben started to play quietly. Mommy was not about to stop that from happening, even if she couldn't see him.

When mommy was finished she went to check on him. He had emptied the bookshelf with all his clothes and mommy's make up. He decided to dress up like a rockstar. Mommy is out of lipstick.

It always so hard to want to get up when they are so quiet. I have done that many times, only to find Emma eating lotion, or putting on my mascara.

Reuben looks good in pink. :) Sorry it was such a hard day, but at least you got a fun picture out of it.

My mom always told me I was getting into the worst trouble when she couldn't hear me.

Boy oh boy! That's all I can say.

Oh wow- at first I thought that was a horrible bruise. Thank goodness for lipstick :)

I also thought that he'd managed to injure himself somehow! Just think: whenever he does something you're not completely happy with, take a picture and say: here's one for the wedding video...:)

Hey brecken...not sure if you even knew I was checking on here once in a while, anyways this picture made me LAUGH...our Sariah often gets into my mascara and colors her whole face, I held her up to the mirror the other day so she could see her art project and she started bawling! It was hilarious, but yes they get into lots of stuff. Anyways enjoy your staying home, I'd never be able to squeeze a job into my already job at home, I can barely stay on top of it all! WOW later erin
