Real Live Monkeys!

Sometimes when I look back at pictures, I can't help but think that they can be deceiving. Not that it's really a bad thing but most still-shots depict happy people & good times. Which is why we take them, right? But the reality is, a picture shows my toddlers appearing to stand still while looking cute, and as cute as they are, it's just not always accurate. This is why today you will see some live action. It still is only a snippet of our day but it's more accurate than a picture, I think. They love to play on the couches. And I love that they have fun doing it, and it is one of the few things that they love to do TOGETHER. I just hate thinking about the poor abused couch! But I've been told to pick your battles and this particular battle is not one I'm willing to fight right now. So, abused couches it is. Here are the diaper/speedo monkeys fresh from the tub. Speaking of battles, bathing. A necessary evil with these two. When we can (which isn't very often), we have started giving them baths separately. They are just too hard to tame when they are together sometimes. Alright, back to reality.

P.S. Grandma Tucker, does seeing this make you second guess your decision to have us invade your beautiful mission home in the near future?! :)

Oh yes, I can relate to the whole pick your battles thing. You should see my poor abused kitchen table. If it hadn't been given to us I never would be crazy enough to own a soft pine table.
