Gratituesday: The Kids

These kids of mine.  Some days they drive me bonkers, but I have to admit that on my list of blessings, they rate pretty highly.

Lately, they have been playing together a lot.  Instead of individual games iwth separate toys, Adrienne is trying to work Noah into her games.  They like to draw together, read together, and hide in their tents together.  My absolute favorite, though, is when they play "Sleeping Beauty" together.

Adrienne builds a "bed" of couch cushions and pillows in the middle of the living room floor.  She then climbs to the top and promptly "falls asleep."  It is not long before the call comes, "Noah, come here.  You have to be the Handsome Prince and wake me up!"  Sometimes he comes of his own volition, other times mother has to intervene and escort the prince to kiss "Sleeping Beauty." 

This game, pictured above, has brought me hours of joy in the past few weeks.


  1. How fun! I think our kids must be about the same ages (mine are 3yo and 17mo), because I've been catching mine doing about the same thing lately! They are so much fun to watch when they're playing nicely together!

  2. Yep, mine are almost 3 and 14 months!
