First we packed up all three and headed to my families 4th of July BBQ. Then we had a family picnic on the front lawn. Margot figured with two extra kids eating her macaroni she'd better just take it directly from the serving bowl.
Then we just couldn't resist the three kid in the bath moment. I mean come on, could they be any cuter? Oh and kid my kid be an whiter??? Like mother, like daughter.
They even all went to bed at 8 pm with little to no hiccups. And woke up Sunday morning to milk, pancakes and Sesame street before being carted off to church.
There were lots of laughs especially watching Margot with Matheson. She loves him so much and she kept hugging him, touching him, patting his back and jabbering at him. His response was generally a blank stare of "what are you doing?".
But I will say three kiddos that close in age are no joke. There was one point when both little ones were on my lap and Jed was hugging my legs and all three wanted something at the same time and I thought I might loose it. I also changed 24 diapers in 28 hours and I am NOT kidding. In short here were our take a ways:
- We love those James kids and will happily borrow them anytime
- Thank God my brother was crashing with us for the weekend because that give us a one to one kid to adult ratio which made things a lot easier
- We want to maintain that ratio so three kids will not be in our future if we have anything to say about it
- Little kids just love other little kids so much and it's a delight to watch
So thanks James' for sharing the boys with us. Margot was very sad to see them go and she misses her Matheson.
