So, I've been slacking.  I've been lazy.  I've been tired.  I've been walked over....by my children.  That may be one reason I don't blog as much.  They are wearing me thin.  I want this to be positive, but recently our days are full of tantrums and short naps.  They have been napping less, going to bed later and waking up earlier.  No paci? Is that still the problem, or is this just signs of getting older?

Claire's attitude is ridiculous (although many times I have to turn around bc I'm laughing).  She can be so sweet, then a second later is a terror.  She's been saying some funny things.  Tonight as I was putting her to bed she said, "no shower, Mommy" (while pointing her finger at me) "go to the den".  She thinks that if I take a shower I am leaving.  So most nights she tells me not to shower and not to go anywhere. I couldn't believe she pointed her finger at me tonight!  Bedtime routine aslo takes forever.  After five books, she wants to sing three plus songs then I have to tuck her in like a baby, then she turns to the opposite of crib and wants me to cover her again...etc goes on for 15 min. and in between Max is asking the same things.  "I want a hug" "No kiss mommy, just hug" "ok, kiss mommy" on and on an on.

Today I got my hair done.  I've been debating whether or not to cut my hair and after lots of pep talk, I cut it off.
It's a tad shorter than I was hoping, but I am happy.  It feels (and looks) so much healthier!  And why is it every time I sit in the chair at the salon, I notice and extra chin and more wrinkles.  I thought this wasn't supposed to happen for at least 10-20 more years ;)

My brother was in town today and dropped his girls off for a few hours.  We had about an hour to play before my twinados woke up.
Payne twins

Claire joined in on the fun!

Claire was so good with them.  She shared and played so nicely.  I was very proud of her. I wish we got to play with them more often!


  1. Similar stuff going on over here... Finger pointing, short naps and an exhausted mommy

  2. Your brother has twins too? How fun! We are months behind you and are already experiencing the tantrums, so I can't imagine what it will be like in a few months. Except Chloe doesn't have many words, so it's all crying and now more recently hitting. I love your hair!!

  3. Oh my gosh Kelly!! Love love love the hair. For real.... looks so good!
