It gets easier...right??

Wouldn't you be grumpy if you had to be woken up while sleeping like this??

I love my religion, but going to church has become a battleground.

The boys are NOT fans of sitting for 3 hrs, so I've backed it off to just the 1st hour, but it seems like that is too much! They wrestle with me & each other, throw their toys, bother EVERYONE around us and nothing seems to keep their interest.

And until they become afternoon nappers, which would screw with my sleeping schedule during the week, they end up with a short, or non-existent nap time. Makes for very unhappy kiddos.

It's slightly easier for me (not necessarily them) when I can sit with my brother & his family, but that isn't always an option. And our chapel is tiny with very few pews, and I've learned that sitting in the chairs just isn't an option.

Their going to grow out of this, right??

What toys/distractions have worked for your kids at this age (15 months), to keep them entertained???

In better news, Cooper is now sleeping until about 6am!!! I'll take it. I think that spending at least 30 minutes outside in the heat, and keeping them busy during the day has helped. AND, they may have just needed this time to get into their own routine. Although Eric just left again, we look forward to him making an appearance in time for my birthday at the end of the month, his in July, and our 10 yr anniversary a few days after that!.

Giveaway winner & SO much more

After only 11 entries, it was a pretty even playing field. And the winner is...


Congrats to my #1 PIMP! I hope you enjoy the book as much as I did!!

Send me your mailing address to way2cool2bcocky(at)gmail(dot)com and I'll get it sent out this week...hopefully ;o)

And, here is the latest torture we've made the boys survive.

(I think Carter looks like Jack Jack from the Incredibles!!)

I think it turned out cute, and it always makes people laugh. Yes, there have been a few that give me a scowl or stink eye, but they can suck it!!! It's hair, it grows back! And, if anyone can pull it off, a 1 yr old can :o)

What have you done to your kids/furbabies that shock people??
