Today, all three girls were playing together. Rebekah doesn't really play with the other two, but she follows them around and entertains herself. I really really like it. I always feel like I'm living on borrowed time whenever it happens. The girls wanted her to follow them upstairs, but she wasn't really paying any attention. So, Jane got some Teddy Grahams and made a trial over to the stairs, like breadcrumbs for Cheeky to follow. And follow she did. Picking them up and putting them in her mouth as she went. I don't think it actually worked all the way though. If I remember correctly, she didn't every actually go up the stairs.
It really was too bad because I was trying to have on of those be productive around the house days. You know, one of those days where you put on your best "do stuff around the house" type clothes and have all these big plans in your head to clean every bathroom, even the floors, the kitchen, including wiping down the cupboards, and to top it all off, wash, fold, and put away all the laundry in the same day. But it didn't really happen. It's going to spill over into tomorrow. But it's all good because I've learned to lower my expectations. Not to say that we live in filth, far from it, (I have definitely turned into my mother), but I've learned that if I can not be so worried about making sure that everything is perfect in the house, then I actually feel much better.
