Haiti says "Ha HA HA .. I laugh in the face of your plans, I scoff you, I mock you. You idiot!"
We had a busy day.
First I offer you my small early-day success ... Find below the "before" photo of Hope, Isaac and Noah's bedroom. When Troy saw it he said "Isaac, did mom see this? What did she say?"
Isaac said, "She said: Oh Crap"
And, I wish I could tell you that he was just being funny ... But no, that is indeed what I said. And now Isaac is repeating me. Nice.
While this work was going on, the food delivery showed up, which is no small thing. So we hung a sheet to try and shield this lady from that chaos.
Then, when I was down helping Britt and Paige for about two minutes (to hang the sheet) -- Hope displayed her amazing skills of independence. You know the saying "many hands make light work." Well, in these parts it is "many hands make for mass confusion." Hope decided that Phoebe was hungry in the two minutes I was not around. So, in her ever-self-sufficient way she found a bottle and popped in Phoebe's mouth as she sat in her bouncy chair. Sounds awesome, right?
No, not so much. Hope chose the bottle that was sitting with the dirty dishes, it was about 12 hours old and smelling pretty sour. Phoebe seems no worse for the wear, but I am learning that Hope might need some gentle reigning in. Self-sufficiency may be her undoing.
And, for those of you who are not yet tired of Phoebe ... A photo from morning nap time.
Noah said today, "Set that baby on the couch Ma, hode me!" He is not shy about his jealousy. I keep telling him he is still the baby BOY of the family. Being two and a half can be rough.
So, there you have it. A Saturday without much planned. Now it is time to make dinner and collapse.
Love to all,
