Playing Together

So yesterday, Friday, I ended up having to watch the kids all day because our sister-in-law who usually watched them was away on vacation. Jess worked all day and so it was me and the kids to fend for ourselves. Well, I had a decent amount of work to get done and so the kids will usually just sit there and watch tv all day or play a little. I hate it when they just sit there and watch tv all day, but I didn't have to worry about that yesterday. They probably watched about 10 minutes and then the next thing I know they are in McKaylee's room playing house or something. They didn't come out of her room for 2 hours! Then we had lunch, they took little naps and then they were back in there again! They just kept playing and playing together (with minimal arguments and fighting). I love hearing them get along so well and wonder what's going to happen when the baby comes. Will they accept him? Will he be the 'outcast' or will they want to take care of him too much? I guess we just have to wait and see, but until then I'll enjoy them getting along so well.

I wish my kids got along that well. The other night I put them in the shower together and the next thing I knew they were running through the house naked, soaking wet trying to fight each other. aaaaaaaaaaaaahhhhhhhhhh!

When our 3rd came the other 2 pretty much ignored him b/c he didn't do anything or say anything. Now that he is 6 mo they are starting to interact with him and have fun making him laugh. And by the time Ellie goes to Kindergarten Max will be old enough to run around a play with ellie. Its perfect!
