But it's so warm and relaxing in here!

Not more than 10 seconds after I posted this:

Sera created shit stew in the bathtub. Nothing like a nice warm tub to get things moving. What I find most amazing is that stuff like this doesn't even phase me anymore. I get the babies out, clean out the tub (a cat scoop is quite handy in situations like these), run new water, give the babies a quick re-wash, done. Yes, this happens far more frequently than it probably should in our house. The hazards of letting a baby with poop issues* play in the tub, instead of just washing her and getting her the fuck out.

Apologies for the crappy (har!) image quality. Had to use paint, because I can't find my case for Photoshop Elements, and therefore don't have the serial number, and my trial version has expired. Guess it's time to call Adobe.

Also - yes, I put the girls in the tub and leave the room. I also sometimes sleep in and let my 7-year old feed everyone pizza for breakfast. Right now, I'm hiding in my bedroom and can hear Reagan and Sera downstairs playing in the recycling bin (and by playing I mean gleefully distributing milk jugs and beer cans all over the kitchen). I'm aiming for Badparent of the Year Decade.

* UNSOLICITED ADVICE: Got a constipated baby? Put her in a tub full of warm water about chest-high. Let her play around for awhile, or if you're in a hurry, massage her belly. Either way, prepare for the mudslide. Gross, but works every time!

the fun of parenthood never ends!

My challenges this week:

- finding cheap (as he won't stay in them long) 34x34 pants
- finding cheap (for same reasons) size 14 shoes
- trying to convince a kid that he really *does* need to shave
- having to tell a kid, no, I know you like the girl that cuts your hair, but you can't just get it washed, you have to actually get it cut, too.

LOL - love the last one. Have you tried posting a "wanted" on freecycle for the jeans and shoes? I've had pretty good luck procuring soon-to-be-outgrown clothes there.
