I swapped two of the boys for two girls this afternoon. What a trade! It leaves Joshua a little outnumbered but that can’t be helped. The house is full of scampering and skipping about with little dolls in hand instead of wrestling and charging around with cars and swords.
The truly scary moment came in the evening when I snapped this series of pictures. Are these girls teenagers in the making?
Elise, is this going to be a long call because we’ve got things to do before we go to bed?
I’ll just pose for the camera while she’s on the phone. Check out those goggles!
Sarah: Oh what a beautiful evening, oh what a beautiful night. I’ve got a beautiful feeling, everything’s going my way.
Elise: Yes, Mom, okay, yes, I love you too. You’re a little off key there, Sarah.
Now to be fair Elise was on the phone saying good night to her mother and didn’t request to use the phone but still, all I could think about was these two cuties ten years from now.
“Just a second, Mom, I’ve got to smile pretty for the camera.”
It took me a little bit but I finally wrestled the phone from the girls and sent them off to bed. I’m not ready for teenager girls, yet!
