What a big brother is good for?

 Helping a little brother become Big!

I was in the kitchen packing up the food and dishes when it was all too quiet, so I went to the back of the house to check on the boys to find this! Jake had put "Underoos" on Drew. They were pulled up perfectly but on backwards. You have to hand it to the kid, great job Jacob! Love, mom

This is a real conversation that Jacob and I had today:

Jacob: Hey mom where did you buy these muffins they are so good?

Emily: I didn't buy them at a store I made them.

Jacob: No Mom what store did you buy them at?

Emily: Jacob I made them last night for you with Love.

Jacob: No mom you bought them when you where in California last night.

Emily: I didn't go to California last night.

Jacob: Yes you did!

Okay so according to my almost 3 year old I had a vacation last night. All I can remember was a 3 year old that wouldn't stay in his bed, and kept kicking me in the back. Is that California?

We are moving!

We have sold our house! If you have ever sold a house, you know what this simple act of having your house on the market is all about. Keeping your house clean all day, this with two kids is impossible. Oh and don't forget every time you leave for that 10 a.m. play date. You have left your house perfect so if by chance a real-estate agent wants to bring a client through, your house looks and smells clean. No evidence of Jacob's breakfast that was partially eaten and mostly moved to his chair, walls and floor. Or of the spit-up that Drew left behind from his morning bottle. Don't forget that morning poopy diaper--there is no trace of that either. So with all of this being said, my house has been a disaster for the past couple of days. This is the exhale of the past four months of a perfect house. I feel much better now. So tonight I am starting up the cleaning and laundry. Or should I say I am putting Kelly to work. So we can have a house that looks and feels clean again. emily
