The boys new thing is practicing their jumping, practicing their dancing, pretty much practicing everything.

They have been building things with their chairs so that they can jump off into a pile of pillows and stuffed animals.
This gives me a near heart attack to watch them do.

I had to put a stop to this after Callum did this exact jump and hurt his foot. Thankfully nothing was broken or hurt badly.
They weren't very happy but I couldn't feel good about just letting them act like Evel Knievel.

This is a fine line for me. I don't want to be the mom that won't let them do anything that little boys do and it's hard to sit idly by while they do things that could potentially have us visiting the nearby Emergency Room.

I guess having little boys we'll always be walking a fine line of being overprotective and letting them do what little boys do.

Science Museum

The boys and I went to our local Science Museum Saturday.
We spent almost five hours there. I was exhausted by the end of the day.
They had a blast. Right now they have Body by Sesame Street as a visiting exhibition.
They loved being able to see Elmo's house, play in Harper's grocery store and especially the grosser parts of the exhibit about poop, sneezing, and stomach acid.

Besides that part of the museum they love going to see the giant Polar Bears the museum has had for years. They're still scared to stand too close to the glass figuring they will wake up any second.


This was Grover's relay to teach them over, under, through, sliding and jumping. Callum was getting mad at the other kids that were going the wrong way.



Sneeze Machine


We were stopped more times than I can even count to ask if they were twins. Everyone had the usual "you have your hands full" "I'm glad I'm not you" the typical stupid comments that people normally make when we're out in public.
The boys hardly notice anymore when they're being ogled and I am being questioned about if they were conceived the "regular" way or not.
