If only...


he could sweep everything together rather than spreading it across our house.
If only he could help do the dishes rather than unload the dirty dishes from the dishwasher.
If only he could fold cloths rather than unfold them.
If only he could put his toys "in" the basket.
If only he couldn't open all my kitchen drawers and empty them.
If only he could stand the sight of the vacuum and help push it around.
But if he did all these things that I dream he one day will, the pictures wouldn't be as precious.

Cute post Chels. I totally agree with you. Eli has started putting silverware away. That was a pretty exciting day.

Sorry to tell you it only gets worse before it gets better so unfortunatly get used to it!! Kaden likes to take dirty dishes off the table and put them in the drawer when I'm not looking.

I definately second that! Bryson does the same thing! Even though it is a pain, they are only little once and it goes by so fast. Someday we will be wishing that they were there doing all those little things that once drove us crazy.

With 2 toddlers at my house I totally understand.

Hey, Audrie was telling me you take pictures. Could you email me some information, and let me know if you are up to taking pictures of my 3 boys before your baby comes.

I am thinking maybe outside. Do you think you could come up here? How much $$$? I would like to have individual and group shots.

Hey, It took me 15 minutes to finish the outside without pinning it.

If you wanted to go up and do a shoot for Jen we could coordinate it with when we go to the fabric store up there and then I could take the 3 boys to Moms or lunch or park or something...just a thought.
