Blush Sweaters and Diaper Bag

April 26, 2017

So guess what?  I found THE PERFECT place for the boys while I’m trying to take a shower.   THE TUB!!!!  Haha, didn’t see that one comin’ did ya?!  Not even kidding you.  I put them in the tub today with a few toys and they laughed and played and even pushed themselves up so they could see out the window.  Do you know the number of times I’ve had to run out of the shower naked to take something away from them?  Or to break up a fight, or to get them out of my makeup?  Too many!
