365 Project: February 10, 2012

Somehow dinner with kids, at other people's houses, is crazy.

Are the girls energy levels at their tip top peaks? Better believe it.
Will Alia or Larren be interested in eating? Doubt it.
Do we usually have an out of the blue spill or two? Absolutely.
Will they touch something they aren't supposed to? Probably.
Do early bedtimes beckon just as we're getting into good conversation? Yuppers.
Will we get to play games like we had hoped to? Sorry... maybe next time.

Yeah, it's a lot of work... but seeing the girls interact, play, and be loved on by the generations before them makes it worth it!

From falling asleep in a great auntie's arms...

... to baking enough cookies for a small army...

... we'll take it.

The layed back, relaxing family dinners have changed... but we'll savor these new ones, cause before long we'll miss spilled drinks, lost mittens, and blanket forts... guaranteed.

*and I also guarantee that I'll need reminded of that! :)
