Do you notice anything wrong with this picture? We call this "mermaiding" and Hailey seems to have a fondness for it.
Every morning when we go to get her out of bed, she is either "mermaided" and stuck laying down or she is completely stripped of clothes and diaper standing up in her bed. Some mornings we even get the added joy of having to change sheets that have been peed upon in the absence of a diaper.
This morning as I was checking the email, she crawled by the office door in all her mermaid glory. She is a nut! That is the first time she has ever done that - if she keeps that up, at least she will have strong arms! I found the Little Mermaid DVD thinking that maybe she would enjoy seeing a real mermaid swim around. Evan liked it. Hailey not so interested. But.....
I had to post a picture of this because it is a rarity around our house. This was close to nap time and she must have been super tired because she pulled up her little chair and was enthralled with the big purple dinosaur. Maybe we have another dinosaur lover in our midst?
And sadly, yes, our house does seem to always look like that....
Day to day musings about my life as a mother of three kids. Spencer, my oldest is fourteen. Evan, my second son and middle child is twelve. My little girl, Hailey is nine years old. I started this blog shortly after my oldest turned six and the other two were "under" - hence the name.

The most important thing she'd learned over the years was that there was no way to be a perfect mother and a million ways to be a good one.

We're conditioned to think that our lives revolve around great moments. But great moments often catch us unaware—beautifully wrapped in what others may consider a small one.
