How Many Times?

The other day I tried counting how many times I told Gabriel to leave Josie's toys alone.

I lost count around 20.

Then I tried counting how many times I told Josie to quit picking Gabriel up.

You can tell from the picture that he isn't a fan of it.

What you can't tell from the picture is how awful the pitch of his whine/cry was every time she picked him up.

That one I lost count on about 30.

"Quit pushing!" 

"Don't hit!"

"Get out of the toilet!"

I need to record these sayings and just play the tape on repeat all day.

Then maybe I could go sit outside and drink my coffee and not have to say a word for ten minutes straight.

Can you imagine?!?!

Oh, these two are stinkers!

Screaming and screeching one minute, laughing and hugging the next.

I can't keep up.

They are starting to gang up on me and by the looks of it, I'm fighting a losing battle!

It's a good thing they're so adorable.

I have days (like today in fact) where I feel like "No, don't do that" is all I say to them. This too shall pass! ~I think~

HAHAHA I know EXACTLY what you mean about the recorder and just putting it on play all day long. WOW. If you don't count you keep your sanity longer... so don't count! hahaha

I am happy to jump over for a min to take a look around to see how you all are doing. I miss reading about you all like I used to be able to. Life has consumed me and now it's just gone back to 'people I used to 'know'' haha.

Blessings friend! It is DEFINITELY a good thing they are ADORABLE! :)

My kids are the same way. It only gets more fun once the younger one is more vocal! ;)

I know how you feel, that was us! I dont repeat anymore, they know now when I say it once that will be the only time they hear it and they need to obey. My son {24 months} just learned how to say sorry, and its so cute....it melts my daughters heart. Every time he goes to say sorry to her, she smiles and they kiss and hug and tickle....love it. She cant stay mad at him for long. My son loves being picked up like that by his sister, he thinks its so funny.

I love peeking in on all of your scarecrow FUN!!!!!! Your versions just make me smile! I think the little accordion book will make such a precious keepsake! Can you imagine pulling it out to share at thanksgiving in 20 years?!
