Today was a much better day! I admit, I do not usually look forward to grocery shopping with all three kiddos in tow but they were very well behaved today. We accomplished two grocery stores, a gas tank fill up and stopping to get our city sticker all in 2 hours. Not bad!
Later Samuel said, "Mommy, have we been really good today?" I said, "definitely!" A relief:)
What isn't a relief is the very hot, humid weather! We decided to break out Little Miss's baby pool today. 84 bucket trips later, she was cooling off on the back porch after nap. She was very excited to get her bathing suit on and splash around!
As you can see:)
And after Mr Z finished cleaning up his share of their atrociously messy room (read: I threatened to go in with a trash bag and throw away any toys and "treasures" left on the floor by bedtime!), he joined his little sis. He has always loved bathtime with her and just sitting and filling up cups and bottles, whereas Samuel outgrew that awhile ago.
I snuck my feet in a few times because it was so tempting! Eliana has already decided she is wearing her pink bathing suit tomorrow...
Tonight, I put her to bed and raced to get ready for Zumba and I heard her calling for me. "Mommy! Mommy, I need to talk to you! Mommy!"
So I went in there to find her sitting up (undoing all the tucking in I already did, of course;) and I asked her what she needed. She mumbled something really softly and I couldn't hear her at first and then she said, "I jis' missed you a wittle bit, Mommy."
Could she be any sweeter?!
