I have thought this from the beginning and I believe it whole heartedly, two year old are cute for a very specific reason. So you don't kick them out when they make you want to pull your hair out.
Speaking of hair, Asher's finally got a trim
Asher and Rhode are really good buddies right now. I have a new strategy where I make them do chores first thing in the morning. I stick on the at the beginning to make sure a few things get done and then, when they start to get antsy, I offer to let them have a little outside time. But when they come back in, it means they are ready to get back to jobs. This has led to hours of happy play time in the backyard instead of the begging for shows that Asher usually attempts. I know, I'm a genius.
After their morning bath one day, they weren't able to get dressed immediately because Jude was asleep in their room. So they had some "nakee lego time" Boys are awesome.
"Mom, Asher's face got too close to my painting!" He is messy a lot of the time, but he has almost completely stopped coloring on my house, which is a major, major win.
He has two best buddies right now, Ivan and Frankie. They always greet each other with a hug and play so happily together.
