PS

I just needed to write a little P.S. to yesterday's post (if you haven't read it, read it first).  Remember how I said that they were talking quite nicely at the time...what I soon discovered was another twin phenomenon--'Partners in Crime.'  My kids were talking so nicely to each other because they were doing one of their favorite naughty activities together.  This particular instance they had unloaded an entire new container of baby wipes onto the floor and coffee table, luckily I discovered it before they got to the scattering and ripping into pieces stage.  (I know that some of you must be thinking well, why were you not supervising their every move...to you I can only stick out my tongue!)  Anyhow, I would hate for anyone to miss out on the full story of the nice talking, so it had to be posted, plus the 'Partners in Crime' moments seem to be some of their strongest bonding moments, so they should probably be documented.

P.P.S.  To those of you I was sticking my tongue out at,  you will be happy to know that they are just waking up from naps as I type the last words.

P.P.P.S  To Amber, I am sure that this post is full of punctuational (pretty sure I never have before and probably never will again type/use that word) and grammatical errors because as I was typing it I kept forgetting rules that I know I have learned and second guessing my self.  Oops!  Hopefully what you teach your students will stick better than what my teachers taught me.

i can't believe you left your kids unattended - what kind of mother are you??

yesterday, walter emptied out our wipes right behind my back. i heard him doing it, but still made no attempt to stop him. he was being quiet, and he wasn't making me hold him.

to dani,

no egregious errors popped out on the first read. and i'm not going back to check.

however, we did a lesson today on parenthetical phrases (such as the one i'm making right now and several of which you made in your post). no joke, i actually had that thought while reading your post before i got the ppps. i am a nerd.

ps - the other day i used the word "paginate" for the for time. i will NEVER use that word again. mark my words. sick.

I have a great story to share sometime on a post about Madisen. I was enjoying the quiet WAY too much one day, disaster!! YOU HAVE BEEN TAGGED!

Dani....To those you stick your tongue out I applaud you...for not taking them too seriously. Anyone who thinks you must (or can for that matter) supervise your kids every second of every day is obviously not a parent. Much less a parent of twins...after all there is only one mommy.....
On another note...I will be in Cincy this summer and would love to get together and do dinner or something and see your adorable kiddos...email me (or have Jared do it, either way) at srobins26@hotmail.com and maybe we can figure something out. I was going to get together with Jason and Gini too, maybe it can just be one huge party.....Anyway, how do you like all THOSE grammatical errors? he he

I swear the quiet times are when the biggest messes happen.

You didn't have to stick your tongue out at me! The whole wet wipe thing makes me so mad so fast. But if it does happen, everyone hopes it's Toby because he doesn't get in as much trouble as the daycare kids do!
