Little Angels

As much as I love being a mom, Clara and Clay have really tested my patience this week. I came outside to find them hanging on the pool fence with their suckers which I thought was cute, so I grabbed the camera to capture the moment. This was a good day. The next day, however, didn't go so well. Taking a hammer to the fridge, spitting juice and milk at each other while running around the house, putting things in the toilet, scratching Derek's leather chair with a screw, and drinking from the dog's water dish were just a few of the mischievious things they did. Nothing major, but all firsts and within a few days was enough to make me crazy! Maybe that's their way of telling me to get out more!?

I know that at the time those kinds of things are so annoying! But reading about them is pretty funny. Sounds like you are hanging in there though.
