{Pretty, Happy, Funny, Real} Of Rice and Boys


~ Capturing the context of contentment in everyday life ~
Every Thursday, at Like Mother, Like Daughter!

Finally, more than just an inch or two! Real snow!

The effort to pull Little Brother is just too much. Big Brother is worn out.

Believe it or not, this is the second time in a week twenty or pounds of rice has been spread aroudn the upstairs!

During a playgroup late last week, the boys and a friend had very a involved sensory experience with our bins of rice in the schoolroom. What started out as scooping and pouring ended in a barefoot, ice skating rink of rice that spread into the hall and Baby Brother's room. Totally worth it! Just wish I'd gotten pictures.

Over the weekend, there was an "accident" and the rice spilled again. It's gone to live in the basement for a bit while I recover!

I originally wrote this post Tuesday to be published yesterday (Thursday), but here's what happened between then and now...

This week has been full of "real" moments, especially yesterday. Baby Brother proved again just how different he is from his brothers while we were at story hour. I was exhausted trying to keep him corralled and quiet!

In the afternoon, Big Brother accidentally destroyed one of the crafts I was prepping for our Blue Knights/Little Flowers meeting today, and then Little Brother was splashed by boiling water!

Some days you can't win for losing, as they say!
