Spring Fever...

It is so glorious outside today. 
For those of you who don't live in God's chosen city Charleston, sorry to rub it in. 
It's at least 74 degrees right now. 
So glorious in fact that I attempted to take both girls for a walk. 
At the same time. 

I know some of you are thinking to yourselves, "You only have two kids lady...pull yourself hard can it be". And that is how I will know you have never met Charlotte, my 2 year old. 
Because taking a walk with one Charlotte is like trying to take a walk with 17 gerbils...stressful, fast-paced, and someone's probably coming back with bite marks.

But the girls could use fresh air and I didn't go to all the trouble of putting my bra on for nothing, besides good parents do things like let their offspring out of the house on occasion.

 4 tantrums, 7 thrown rocks, 1 scraped knee, several pitying looks from neighbors, and 3 hissed threats of eternal time-out later...we turned around, walked six feet, and were back at our house.

Six feet totally counts. Score one for good parenting.

  1. Sigh. Don't make me cry out of jealousy over here! You need that walk on your own... do me a favor and head down to the battery tomorrow and take pics! And actually, just take me with you while you're at it, ha!
