Absence

I know I haven't posted in a while. I know it's bad when Phil even questions me about it. I have taken so many photos lately of other people's families and kids that I haven't taken any of my kids. Scandalous.
Here are some photos that I took of Addy and Kate a while ago when Phil was working late and the kids and I were having fun just being together. I already blogged the photos of Henry, but never did anything with these. Bad mother. I wonder if they'll ever forgive me. I'm saving up for therapy already.
What can I write about these two girls that you don't already know? Probably lots. Kate, aka "bacon and eggs," "keeker-beeker," and "shake'n'bake" is a total blonde at heart. The girl can't complete a task. She can't save a penny. She can't finish a chore. She never stops smiling and dances everywhere she goes. She lights the world.
Addy "peeko-reah, diarrhea" (unfortunately for her, her parents have no judgement) is a complex individual. She eats her food from the opposite side of the plate than I do and I just don't get her about 93.2% of the time. She wants to know every single, solitary detail before it happens or is anticipated to happen. She never stops questioning me about ANYTHING and never wants to stray from the rules - as long as it suits her. She also keeps things in order; teaches herself about 80% of her school and keeps me accountable. She loves me unconditionally and I'm always amazed at her awe of me. She makes my life hum and makes me crazy all at the same time. Man, is she a case.

"Peek-a-reah...dia-rreah..."? I'd really like to know the history behind that one...
