Our life recently has consisted mostly of STAR WARS, SHOES, and SAND.
STAR WARS: Jacob went to a STAR WARS birthday party a few weeks ago and ever since he thinks STAR WARS is the best thing ever. Yesterday he came in and asked Ben and I, "Is there anything that is cooler then a light saber?" Good question, I don't think there is. We borrowed the movies from some friends and Jacob would spend all day watching them if I would let him. He already knows a ton more about the story than I do, although that is not hard considering I have only seen two of the movies. I think I will have to break down soon and watch the movies so I can know what he is talking about and learn all of the characters that he is referring to now.
SHOES: David has recently developed a little SHOE fetish. He loves putting on SHOES whether they are his, Jacob's, mine, Ben's or even Madeline's(those don't fit very well, they are mostly toe covers) Consequently, there seems to be SHOES all over our house! He puts on one pair for awhile and then soon discards those for a different pair.
SAND: There is SAND ALL OVER our house due to the STAR WARS play and SHOE fetish. Let me explain; Jacob plays STAR WARS outside with his friend, they each get a light saber and fight each other running all over. We have a large SAND box in front of our house so of course they run right through the SAND often. Then David treks outside with a few different pairs of SHOES each day and brings the SAND in with each pair. I feel like I am always sweeping up SAND and it is never gone. It has even made its way into our sheets, I love getting in bed and feeling sand!:) I hope the boys are enjoying their STAR WARS and SHOES as I spend so much time cleaning up their SAND, Ah the life of a mother, I'll sum it up with two words, SWEET and STRESS!
