Abby loves to color everything right now (including our wooden blocks and her bed) so it was no surprise that she loved this activity.
On their shopping trip with Grandma, the kids talked her into buying stuff for a seafood jambalaya - Ethan really ate this and yes it is octopus.
Here is Miles eating something slimy as well - I thought I prided myself on liking seafood, but I guess I am more of a plain fish person - I have no desire to try squid (I think they call it calamari) or the octopus. The kids said it was good though - I will take their word for it.
Well - as nice as it was to have a bit of a break - I was sure anxious to have them back. I did start to question that thinking though after they had been in the car for 10 minutes. Abby started crying because she wasn't wearing socks (why is it that she goes all day without socks, but cries for me when I wasn't even the one who got her dressed?). We pulled over, found her socks and put them on and that bought me 10 more minutes of peace until she decided she needed a drink - desperately. So the trip home was a "bit" hard - and poor Paige and Piper - I thought they would like to have their sister there to entertain them a bit, but between Abby's feet on their heads and her sucker stuck in their hair, they weren't so sure they were happy to see her. I hope that a good night's sleep will help the poor girl- her dad always says she is so well behaved, but I don't believe him.
