Sometimes I wonder if I really am "that mom". My kids have been in 5 daycare situations so far. First, they were at an in-home daycare in our neighborhood. Second, they stayed at our house with their Aunt and their baby cousin who is 3 months younger. Third, we moved to CT and a friend watched them for a few weeks. Fourth, after a no-show nanny, we had a nanny who came to our house. Fifth, we moved to Hamden and put the girls in a nice daycare/preschool nearby. The daycare changed owners and went downhill this year. They are now enrolled in a new school starting in September. Is this too much turnover for my little girls?!?! I feel like they have made the changes well and are still able to attach. I didn't really want to move them again before Kindergarten, but I'm just too uncomfortable with the current setting. That being said, they will be starting at for the next school year.

That being said, they are just growing and getting funnier and funnier every day! They've physically grown about 3 inches in the past 4 months and are little eating machines... 6 pancakes each this morning!

They're starting to find things that are out of the ordinary very funny. Mya was in hysterics after she said she wanted to eat her leftover chicken from lunch "on the road". Originally she meant "in the car". This turned into a back and forth between the girls. "I'm going to eat chicken on a tree", "I'm going to eat chicken on the sun!", "I'm going to sit on the sun!", etc. There was about 2 minutes of hysterical laughter between each comment.

Good times, good times.

I'm really loving every minute of it... even when they're frustrated and break out the attitude, I still love it!

Sick, Sick, Sick

For the past 3 weeks, the household has been battling the New England flu-like illness that has been going around. I am happy to say that the four of us are officially back in commission. We all still have a little remaining cough, but the energy is finally back. We were on vacation this week which gave us some much needed recovery time.

There is not much to update on at this point. Sylvia and Mya are still being the cuties they tend to be on a day-to-day basis. They also have a major attitude that cracks us up more than makes us upset. I mostly forget to write down the funny comments.
Here are the girls Valentine pictures from this year. Sylvia is on the left and Mya on the right in all pictures. Enjoy :)
