What's Going Down

Hindsight being 20/20 and all...

Usually, when we talk about hindsight being 20/20, it is in regards to regret... something we wish we'd done differently. Instead, today I am here to tell you about the something I'm so grateful for.

Abbie was invited over to a friend's house to play. They also invited Anna over, but I figured Abbie needed some special time, so I let her go alone. Therein lies my mistake and my 20/20 moment or rather, HOURS.


With Miles and Lucas asleep, Anna had no one to occupy her time. Just me. Usually the boys' naptime is my downtime, my quiet time. Not today. Anna did not stop talking. AT ALL. For 4 hours. I found myself walking into the bathroom and closing the door, even though I didn't need to use the bathroom. I kept telling her to "go find something to do. Play quietly, read a book. WHATEVER!" I was losing my mind.


I would like to state for the record, that I am SO grateful that my girls are so close in age and so close as friends. I would never have made it through their childhood without someone else to distract them from me. Love them I do. I just can't manage to listen to three straight hours about a Superhero Baby movie...

ROFL. I often feel the same way about Keller. Maybe it's a 2nd kid thing?

That is funny. My second is my quiet one. If it is just me and her in the car, there is no noise. I want another one like her...please.

K is a non-stopper, too. If he's in the car, it seriously is constant. That's why he's in the very back seat :) Love him, but yeah, kids can talk a LOT.

I'm feeling kind of stupid...you were just kidding right? You can't play tricks on a woman with half a brain!
