I am a total sucker for fan videos, and as a mom I have watched decendants about twenty million times. This week. (Ok, not that much, you it’s probably close) I’m mom enough to admit that I kind of maybe love the movie too. AND that Ben & Mal are pretty adorable.
I came across this fan made video on youtube as a suggestion (which goes to show I … er.. my kids listen to decedent songs a bit too much) & instantly knew I had to share it with you guys.
Little Miss has become brave, walking independently more and more each day. She has also hit toddler mode. I do love this stage of discovery and curiosity. Watching her learn about her environment is amazing, even though there are times it makes me want to rip my hair out.
Yesterday her day consisted of
- taking ALL of her toys out of their bins, repeatedly
- Throwing her diapers off their shelf, three times, one of those times being while I was putting them back up.
- Ripped up toilet paper in the living room that we had there to wipe something up
- Taking a whole container full of wipes and dumping them on the floor.
- And, she can now climb so daddy had to move his speaker.
This is my fault, this whole time I thought “Love You Forever” was a story, apparently for toddlers it’s a “how to” book.
Summer is half over. How has that happened already?
It’s been pretty laid back in our home, the kids are just enjoying the freedom of summer.
Somewhere between all the moms groups, blogs and pinterest I forgot that some of the best summers are the unplanned ones. The ones where the kids are just able to be free, playing and enjoying being a kid. I mean, isn’t that what summers used to be about? Now it seems that we feel we have to plan out every moment of our children’s summer days and sometimes it seems like maybe we need to get back to the simplicity that is childhood.
In less about a month the littles are going to be back in school, and life will be less chaotic. My blogging will be less sporadic then, hopefully, but for now I’m enjoying these moments.
This video by Joseph Gordon-Levitt has me in stitches over here!
