4.25 minutes

That's all it takes sometimes. Or really all the time lately.

You'd think I'd learn that I can't leave the kids downstairs for 4.25 minutes alone while I run upstairs for the camera and to put away a few things.

This one's learning to be devious already.


She was trying to hide her indiscretion when I came in the room

Caught red-handed!

And this little perpetrator, this one thought I needed to refile all the sheet music that I had out on the piano bench. Very thoughtful of him to get me started.

Lucky me--I thought I was being productive enough by dressing them in cute Christmas clothes to take pictures by the tree. My kids are very good motivators. I feel so accomplished and fulfilled now that I added the unplanned "file music" to my completed list for the week.
Good thing they're so cute, right?

I don't know how you had your house so clean in the first place! Those were filed?! And then re-filed?! I can see that I need some tips.

Working out every morning helps me so much w/my little ones! Seriously! I have the sense of accomplishment right before the sun rises, my energy is boosted, I had fun & took care of me. On days I don't I my patience is much shorter & the little things frustrate me a whole lot more!

It's hard to see all that music spread around! I bet they were just getting ready to practice! :)
