When the estrogen is flowing...

One day last week I ended up caring for five little girls, age 3 and under. Eric was kind enough to come straight home from work at the end of the day to corral them while I finished dinner. He was tired from his long day though, and judging by the look on his face, I think he would have appreciated a little quiet respite.The littlest one (barely 2 months!) hung out in the kitchen with me. Really, she didn't have that expression the whole time!Later, after dinner and after Ella went home, the three older girls goofed around. Hope is obsessed with 'ring around the rosey,' so I knew this would be entertaining for as long as I could handle it. Things were good (albeit noisy and silly), until Eva joined the game. Apparently she has christened herself the "everyone-fall-down-police." Enjoy the little video, just don't get too dizzy!

I realize now that this post has a bit of a negative tone. Really, we love having friends over helping out when we can. Can you tell by this photo that it's really all fun and games around here???

That video is classic!!! The kids and I got some good laughs out it. Sorry Hope....

Welllll, Hazel "might" be drinking bath water. Maybe we should have people sign a waver when they drop their kids off...
