a few snapshots from our day...
maddie spent the day refusing clothes. every time i turned around i saw her naked bum running away from me, while she squealed in triumph…she gets a kick out of tricking me. while i fake scold her i'm mostly laughing- it might be the cutest sight i've ever seen. we finally compromised on just undies. she held up her end of the bargain for about 12 minutes. matthew couldn't figure out why our house was so warm when he got home- i'm keeping it extra toasty for her naked little body. she promised she'd wear clothes tomorrow…but i'm not banking on it.
gracie decided at 7 am this morning that she'd get into her closet and start her day of 14 outfits. by 10am she had settled on this outfit. i'm really to blame for this…a couple weeks ago we fully baby proofed (or toddler proofed) our house. we put locks on their closet doors, bathroom doors and every cabinet in the house...the rummaging and climbing was getting out of control. while they've figured out how to open all the cabinets already, the door locks are foolproof…unless i forget to put the lock on. so it was a gracie fashion show all day. the tap shoes had to be pried off at nap time.
we had matthew's sister's 16th birthday party tonight…i had a pretty great moment when she requested i make something specific for the party, my artichoke dip. i mean, the family is chalk full of talented chefs, and she loved something i had made! i cooked it with pride and my hope of becoming a culinary genius was reinstated.
i somehow thought we still had a week until valentine's day. i'll be running around tomorrow trying to get our day of love ready, we can't wait!
