Things You Should Be Able To Do In the Dark

Step around all toys left out (in their most recent arrangement) to lay down a sleeping child
Kiss your husband on the lips on the first try
Pass through entire house with arms partially outstretched to avoid all furniture
Pick a butter-bean (that's a lima bean to all you up north) by feel alone
Find a flashlight with a fresh battery on a stormy night
Drink a strong, hot coffee early without splashing
Use all chemical products with eyes tightly closed to avoid suffering the box’s warning of permanent blindness
Change a diaper
Be able to listen so intensely that even while asleep you are processing all the things that go bump in the night
Play hide and seek behind a tree
Become entranced by a star
Find a match to light the candle to kiss your husband by~ you missed the first time ;o)

Here's some much overdue pics of my little ones on Halloween. We've not been feeling well, so it's taken me a while to get these up... sorry.

What an adorable little monkey!

I'm a pro at moving through the darkness of the house when I hear one of the boys cry out...However, the other night, Matt shut the bedroom door unbeknownst to me. I think you can figure out the rest.

BTW, your kiddos are just too cute in their costumes.

Thanks for the compliments! Actually, I must humbly ;o) admit these costumes came from my sewing room. I was quite proud of my accomplishment!

Kimberly said...

The kiddos (and the wellsewn costumes!) are adorable!

Wow. You impress me. The costumes look great.

I've got one to add to your list:
Find a husband. ;-)
