Today was a rough day!

Yesterday Keith had a bike race so I was on my own all morning, but the boys were great! I even took them to the mall for a while.  Today, however, were these two irritable!  We must have had a series of at least six meltdowns.  And they would both be at the same time, but for completely different reasons.  Keith and I were both about to lose it by the end of the day. 

Lesson learned today for me.  Last night we were at Babies R Us and we bought one Thomas toy.  This morning they Carter started playing with it and wouldn't share it with Dylan and the poor kid was just sobbing, I felt awful.  So we went to BRU and bought one, of course he played with it for about 5 minutes and hasn't touched it since! 

Carter is going through this awful phase where if something breaks, like a banana, he wants to put it back together and gets so upset and cries so hard because he can't get it back together.  We went through 5 bananas today.  Carter had two for lunch and then for the last one, we had to put the banana back into the peel and Keith held it for him as he ate it....the things you do for a little peace.  Later we were eating flavor ice's and Keith made a huge mistake of cutting Carter's in half so he could eat it easier!  So that was a big blow-up - good thing we have about 500 more in the freezer. 

We are starting to think they may be getting more molars?  Enough with the teeth!  Just when you think you are done, more come.

Poor kid really wanted to go back outside and tried so hard to get this darn shoe on!
Dylan was a little wiped out, he put this pillow on my lap and laid down with some blankets!
By the end of the night they started to cheer up (this always happens!).  Even though laundry takes about 10x longer to fold with their assistance, they do try to help!  Dylan is getting good at getting the hangers in the shirts!  However, if this was taken five minutes later, you would have seen a serious fight over the hangers and them chasing each other screaming down the hall.
