If only my camera was working. Grace, Kate and her friend decided to have a water party today... in Grace's bedroom. I knew something was up. It had been over an hour and no drama. I decided to enjoy my time and pay the price later. I then heard Grace chatting with her friend.
Shayne: What should we say?
Grace: We should tell the truth.
The kids come down all soaking wet in swimsuits. Kate was especially cute in Grace's swimsuit wrapped around her neck twice to keep it on.
Grace: Mom, we got wet from a water party.
Me: Go upstairs right now. I'm coming up to talk to you.
It turns out she had a bucket and they each took a turn filling it up from the bathroom sink and dumping it on each others heads. They laid a Dora nylon tent on the floor to cover the carpet. Nice! In the end it worked out ok. Water can dry, and hey, everyone needs a little water party in the winter.
An awesome side note: Kate had a poopy diaper. Grace took it off and wiped her with toilet paper, then put on her swimsuit. So who knows, maybe there's a little pee in the carpet too. FUN!

So we are having 4 kids I guess. Chad and I were just talking about how complete we felt with 3 kids. I guess the Lord had to make it happen quick before we made it final. Wow. Exciting and overwhelming!
I wish I could go back in time to tell my sad little 27 year old self that everything was going to work out with kids. If I could just wait five years I'd have 3 kids and one on the way. We feel blessed. I'm in my 13th week and due Labor Day.
Bring it on.
