I was doing wash the other day. I put my whites in the dryer and went to help Belle pick out some pajamas. After I helped Belle I went to shut the Laundry room door and there was Lucy, smirking. Now when Lucy smirks it ALWAYS means she is up to something, but I looked at her, smiled and helped her out of the Laundry room thinking nothing of it. After I put the girls down for bed I went to take the whites out of the dryer to see dark green spots all over my whites. There was a melted crayon stuck right in the middle of my once nice clean whites. Now about a year ago I would have done one of two things...Either cried in complete frustration or freaked out and had a chat with my baby about what a no no that was. My reaction was a laugh! All I could think was, well we needed some new clothes I guess now is the time to get some. It is funny how over time mothering helps you become more patient, easy going and enjoy the little moments that pass so quickly. Even if those moments are a bunch of green tie dyed shirts:)

I love being pregnant, but there are definite moments where I have to laugh. For instance I had to go to the Social Security office today to get a new card. I brought all sorts of treats and books knowing that this could be a long wait for my girls. Half way through I am noticing Lucy's diaper is leaking. At the same moment Belle yells, "Mom I have to go potty, bad." and Peter kicks me so hard I nearly peed my pants. So getting up as quick as I can without causing an accident I waddle to the nearest rest room. I get in and there was the question. Only one toilet, three problems. Who should go first? So naturally I help Belle. Then Lucy's diaper literally falls apart. At this point I am thinking, " I am a grown adult, don't pee your pants." I go to grab a diaper realizing I didn't bring one. Another joy of pregnancy my forgetfulness. I waddle back to our chair, Lucy screaming and people staring, grabbed the diaper and at this point lunging to the bathroom. I changed the diaper faster than I have ever changed a diaper in my life, put Lucy down and well that was the end of me. Belle looked at me shook her head and said, "Mom I guess you don't get a star on your potty chart." Right after my 19 month old grabbed a diaper and gave it to me. Long story short, I am now laughing about it but man what a crazy moment.

I decided to FINALLY start a blog. Its funny how expecting a beautiful new baby makes you think about all the things that need to get done or are still left unfinished. So...I am have been super crazy and proactive to make sure I get them done. One thing at the top of my list was to finish scrapbooking my girls books and journaling all the fun and cute things that Belle and Lucy do before I forgot those moments all together. Scrapbooking has been one thing. I never realized how many pictures I took till I sat down and looked at all the cds that need to be developed with at least 400 pictures on each cd. Yes that will be a work in progress developing all those:) But journaling has been a fun, emotional, and enjoyable thing for me. My girls are so completely different in looks and personalities from one another, but individually they add something special to our family and to each other!! I hope you enjoy getting to know our family as much as I'll enjoy writing about our Silly Schoenfeld Clan:)
