Lately I have been having a really hard time getting the boys to play. We've been watching a lot of shows (many more than I would like). I am a TV junkie and I don't want my boys to be that. My goal is for them to only watch 30mins a day. Maybe a movie here or there with Mommy and Daddy. Honestly I'd rather them watch no TV all day.
However, they are so stinking cute that I can't say no. I mean why in the world would I turn down a chance to snuggle on the couch with my boys. I'm also having a hard time playing with them. Not only and I not a player, but it's now officially uncomfortable to sit on the floor with one of them on my lap. So I have been doing a lot of sitting on the couch instead. I don't do much house work when the boys are awake. When they are awake I am all about them. The computer is off the phone is on a high shelf but I just haven't been able to play with them.
It was so neat. Today I didn't have to play with them, but they sure did entertain me. After most meals I wipe the boys hands clean. They always want the 'clean' when I am all done. I let them have the towels and then they go about the living room and dining room and clean anything and everything. After lunch as they were cleaning G saw his Thomas tent behind the dining room hutch. I don't pull it out often, but when I do they have a BLAST!
Here is M inside the tent yelling G see me? See me? G was on the outside of the tent looking in and pushing the tent saying Choo Choo.

After playing in the tent the boys are always VERY thirsty and hot.

Can I just say how much I love the color of their hair. It's like strawberry blonde, but brown, but white blonde,... well I really have no idea how to describe the color. I just LOVE it!

Look at how rosy M's cheeks and nose are. I'm not sure if you can tell. I was a bad mama and yesterday when I took them to the farm for an Easter play day I didn't even think about putting sun block on them. It was 60 degrees, but beautifully sunny. Surprisingly I didn't even think about having their hats. That won't happen again (hopefully), I am now aware that it is spring and that my little Norwegian boys need to be protected!
