Watching the Washer

Both girls have always and still are obsessed with watching the washer.  Nothing compares to the squeal of delight or burst of giggles as the water stops and the churning starts.  Charlotte was home sick one day and this occupied her for a good 15 minutes (until she wouldn't stop pulling out her sopping wet socks whenever they appeared.)

The best part- the agitator!! 

Better than TV :)

The Morning After

Amanda babysat the girls one night and they played "princess".  When Charlotte woke up, she wasn't done playing yet and demanded a crown, cape and princess book.  Luckily a pj shirt was sufficient.

Let me just start off with saying I know exactly where this problem comes from.  It's 1000% me.  
Sam- since her first pair of shoes- has been a hellian when it comes to the shoes/socks being perfect.

I hate buying shoes.  If I bring her, she will fixate on the one pair she wants (sandals in January or snowboots in July) and every other pair "feels wrong".  If I buy a few to let her pick at home, chances are none "feel right" and it will fuel a fight to the death every morning when it's time to put shoes on.  

But when she finds a pair that "feel right" she never wants to take them off! She got ready for bed the other night and came down like this...
The random pair of shoes in a bag of tights and socks from a friend.  They'll fit her for maybe a month more.

Then, when they are too small or develop holes I literally have to pack them away in the high-shelf box so she doesn't accidentally find them later.

Swim Shots

I've been forgetting my camera, but I remembered this time and got Charlotte's adorable suit and pony tail!  She's the only one who hasn't screamed, but is also the only one with issue with getting water in her ears.  We bought some earplugs and will be trying them out this week!
