Brody and Owen will jump at any opportunity to act like they are building or fixing something. While playing inside they usually spend hours with their play kitchen – whipping up imaginary meals for Dan and I to enjoy. If you stop by during those hours chances are they will drag your butt upstairs and make you sit down and eat along with them. Outside – its tool mania. Obviously they are not allowed to play with 99% of the tools in our garage, but a flashlight and some goggles never hurt.
It was just before dinner time, these little bundles of energy left us out of ideas on this jacket-weather summer day. We played baseball, lacrosse, basketball, baking, puzzles, books, and art class. Thank goodness these two can get creative because as their attitudes started to escalate, they gravitated towards “building their bikes” and their moods instantly switched.
That blissful moment as a parent where you instantly go from wanting to fast forward to bedtime, to smirking away at how darn cute your kids are.
