enjoying some delicious warm weather treats:
and spending some hot afternoons inside:
But it hasn't all been fun and painting. Along with the advancements in communication skills and imagination has come advancements in attitudes and lots of asserting their independence. Lola says "No!" to pretty much everything except offers of tv and candy. Both kids are on their way to mastering the 2 year old mega-fit. They practice their tantrum skills intermittently between working on their whining. Meanwhile I have been working on my deep breathing.
So I guess there's been a major amount of fun and a medium amount of fussing. That's not such a bad ratio for a family made up of 50% toddler, right? :)
