Our children are ninja's
Gabriel and Asher both can catch flies with their bare hands....or two fingers I should say. It's really funny to watch. They each quietly go up where the fly is then kinda follow it for a minute with their fingers. (gaining it's trust I guess lol...) then they grab it's wings and yell for me "MAMA, FLYYYYYYYYY!" it's awesome. Trinity is a master fly killer too just with different tactics, she prefers the swat method...with her lovey or a towel...not her hands...as if :) Gabriel has also learned how to silently climb out of his crib. And I have caught Trinity trying to climb out of her crib too....then she saw that Gabriel got a spank for it and decided against the idea :P haha smart girl.
For the past week Trinity has not wanted to go outside in the backyard. She gets hysterical. whinny. not fun to say the least. And it was a total all of a sudden thing. This child is a water bug, outdoorsy girl....would be out all day if I let her. We had my young mama's life group over yesterday for a play date and she was still wiggin' out. SO, today we did some intervention. It honestly, for real, only took like a minute of whinny screaming outside before she was good to go. I ignored her and played it up with the boys....since she had no one to run to and whine to it ended QUICK! She then played like she normally does. I think we have our normal child back :) Thank you JESUS! As one of my friends in LG says "I don't do whining" uh, yeah :P Glad that was a quick phase.
For one of our lunches this week I decided to let them color at the table with their big paper and crayons b4 I had their lunch ready. Then I used their color pages as place mats! Going to do this more often! It worked great. They were so content to sit and color for the 5 or 10 min b4 eating and then I had less mess on the table to clean up! Total win-win deal!
Some other cute pics from today on the camera phone....
Some funny stuff...
-Trinity's fave new word is Banana...usually in random song....."Bananas, bananana, bananananaana, apple, apple, bananana" I have some cute video but something is up with our little camera's usb...so maybe later
-Also on that camera are video's of our kids fly hunting....pretty funny. If I can ever get them off that camera, I will post them :)
-The word "fork" does not sound good coming out of a toddlers mouth :)
- Trinity likes to wave and say "bye" to her um..stuff....while it is flushing. Can't make this stuff up people
- I bought the kids this little toy camera (check-out line @wal-mart) and when I get my real camera out, Asher will click away on his little camera taking pics with me. (also on the non working video that I hope to upload at a later time) lol
