Today started like any other day. Athena yelling from her room saying "I gotta go pottyyyyyyyy" and Saylor hearing her sister's voice from her own room and then saying "doown....dowwn". Athena had asked me to let her go into saylor's room to get her up. As I was rubbing my eyes and peeing on the toilet, I mutter "fine". She opens the door and saylor is smiling and then laughing while athena grabs toys for her that have fallen out of her crib for her. Saylor is then picked up by me and put on the floor.
The girls "hugged" and went running out of the room. And yes, it is barely 7am at this point (for those of you keeping track).
*********this is where is all changed*******************************
Athena and Saylor went into Athena's room and closed the door. They were relatively quiet and played in there, for 30 minutes together. This may sound like nothing to some of you, but to those of you that were impressed with this, you know why. I heard Athena reading a book to her, then I heard the railroad track being built, then the maracas and drums were being played and then some animated toys were turned on.
All of this was going on and the girls remained happy and without getting hurt.
I was able to 1. make and drink coffee, 2. have a breakfast bar, 3.check email, and 4. write this blog post. Of course I keep anticipating that someone is going to run out of the room in tears or blood, but I am still writing.
I came to the realization that my daughters may be becoming the bffs that we hoped they would become. It also brought to light that I may not be their sole entertainer! So this is why I found this to be so fantastic this morning as I had my brekkie and blogged.
Of course, now that I have actually written this out for the universe to read, they are going to come out of their room running screaming like banshees.
It's gone from this.....
to sometimes being this.....
