While the cats away, the mice shall play

I think I may be in for some double-duo trouble:

I was in the garden, quickly picking corn (that I grew with my own two hands...and some water, seeds and good soil!). When I came inside (not being gone five minutes), I found Rowan COVERED in Desitin and Niev trying desperately to rub it in. Rowan was just trying to eat it.

Can't help but love sisters!

Speaking of sisters, I got a chance to see my sister this weekend without the kids. My parents were heading to Utah just for the weekend and Ian offered to watch the girls to allow me to go. What a fabulous husband! Melissa has a son that is Niev's age, but it was Father-and-Sons campout, so Melissa was child-free as well. We shopped, went out for dessert and laughed until tears were streaming. I will be forever grateful for an unselfish, self-sacrificing husband. He truly is fantastic. No one has a fighting chance trying to convince me that they have a better husband. No way, no how!

PS--Niev must have really missed me because she got into my make-up, shampoo and the fridge within the span of three hours. I was trying to clean my house. I gave up on that and just played with my Desitin smelling girls!

My boys did the exact same thing with desitin at about the same age. Desitin was surprisingly hard to clean up :)

Lovin' the terrible twos. At least their face and hands won't have diaper rash. Sounds like a blast with Melissa.

LOL: your girls are so cute. I CAN'T believe how grown up Rowan is looking. She looks 3 months older than the last time I saw her, crazy how she's looks about a year old in those pics. Yikes! What are you going to do? They're both growing up so fast. Can't wait to see you again; it truly was an awesome evening with you just us! loved it; thanks to our hubbies! :)

Partners in crime! We have a couple of those as well. You can't quite decide which is most appropriate to do first - laugh or reprimand!
