...that is until our much needed, family vacation to Gulf Shores. I need this reminder today as work is crazy for both me and Shane. I don't think we even spoke last night as we both were working (of course after I watched The Bachelorette with Tara and Jessica, GO GRAHAM!!), and then today and tonight, same plans. I have had to work away from home today. I come home and Mom had the look of "Your child is a terror!!" on her face. Mom was not feeling good today, but still watched the kids so I could work. I noticed the smell of some kind of cleaner when I walked in through the laundry room. She tells me that she was on the phone and noticed Owen go into the laundry room. She asked Claire to go see what he was doing, Claire came back saying "I am not going in there, he will spray me!". Mom runs in there and Owen is spraying down the laundry room with Oxy Clean and proceeds to point it at her. Oh Owen! I notice a single Keds shoe is on top of our TV armoire, Claire's shoe when she was much younger. I ask Mom, "Why in the world is that shoe up there?". She tells me that Owen found it and wanted to wear it, the kid loves to take shoes on and off. Well, this shoe is about 2 sizes too small and there is only one, she did not see the mate. He threw such a fit wanting to wear it, she finally shoved it on to his little club foot =), and then he was furious that she did not have the other. So, she hid it on top of the armoire =). As she was telling me this, he started scaling the stairs right behind us, on the outside of the rails!! Poor Mom, hightailed it out of here as fast as she could =)...Oh Owen!! Where was Claire during the day you ask, Mom said that she barely came out of her room today. When Mom would ask / beg her to come down and play with Owen, she would say, "No, I am okay up here!".
Soooo looking forward to the beach...even if it means in a car with 2 kids for 12 hours...maybe we should start praying now =).
Both of the kiddos are sleeping and there is no way I am going to risk waking little man up to take a picture of him today, but below are some adorable pictures of them exactly 1 year ago today (what's a post without pictures).....they have grown so much!!
