Unwind With Bath Time
My new favorite time with the girls is BATH TIME. Annabelle loves picking out her bubbles, right now she has Tinkerbell bubbles:) No matter how fussy Julia is I can throw her in the tub and it just seems to relax everyone... Including ME! Actually, her first laugh was in the tub when Annabelle was kissing her feet.
With two girls some days works like clock work. They nap at the same time with no big hassles. While they're asleep I get the laundry done with a cold diet coke and get caught up on the DVR. The girls wake up in good moods, dinner goes smoothly, bath time is fun, we read scriptures Annabelle listens, we say family prayers, then Brad and I watch our favorite cooking shows with some of my homemade cookies and ice cold milk. I go to bed thinking I have the luckiest job on the planet.
OK, then the next day the girls wake up early and unhappy. The day is filled with one too many poopy diapers. Baby Julia won't stop barfing ALL over me. The laundry is piling up (due to the barfy clothes) And the girls are both fighting to take their naps. The schedules are out the door and I feel like a failure. I wish I could go running to work off those cookies I had the night before but just feel too tired. The day has felt like eternity and I go to bed thinking, "well, I don't have to put on my Jammies because I've been in the ALL DAY!"
Well, my point of this is to say they're are good days with the bad. Being a mommy is hard work but so worth it. When Annabelle out of no where says, "I love you mommy" or "C'mon mommy dance with me" or when I see her being so cute with Julia it makes me so happy. I enjoy our new routine of bath time. What a way to end the day seeing your two cute girls smothered in tinker bell bubbles, laughing with each other.
