7 Blogs in 7 Days...Day 7

Here we are, at the end of my journey, my memory card has been cleaned off my camera and favorite pictures, stories are now on the blog! At least until the girls get up from their non-nap (the hour they spend jumping in their cribs, not napping).

A few inventions I've been thinking about lately and would like to put them out in the blogosphere and if they come to exist, if Honda or Steve Jobs could throw me a bit of cash, that would be awesome.
1. Why is it that limos have sound proof barriers, but no car dealership has thought this might be a great invention for a mom? Yes, I know car time is valuable family time and I do my fair share of EIEIO and "I spy with my little eye, something that is yellow and takes the big kids to school, what does mommy see?". I engage them A LOT. But every once in a while, we have a full-on tantrum in the car and this mama just needs to drive the car home....a little sound-proof window between me and the kiddos would work out great. Thanks Honda.

2. I've mentioned before that I LOVE my Iphone, everything about it (almost), so I think they should invent a nanny-cam app. Seriously, I invest in a camera for my home (or Steve could send me one for free since it was my idea), install, download the app and I can take a peek into my house (sleeping kids, slacker babysitter, etc) on my iphone. Genius, right?

I'll leave you with a few pics of things Addy & Lilly LOVE right now!

Golf carts, trikes, bikes, anything with wheels, they will chant "Go _____ Go!" I took them on a bike ride earlier and they are my little cheerleaders in the trailer as I go up a hill,
"Go, Mommy, Go!"

They are obsessed with our neighbors. These poor kids. Addy & Lilly wake up and say "Outside, Jake? Scotland?" Then follow them around EVERYWHERE. We end up having to go to the park so I can give the kids a break to play with kids their own age without the shadows that are my kids! (Notice Jake is hold a worm, so don't be surprised when my girls become tree-climbing, dirt digging, tomboys.

School! They love it this year, they love going and know their teachers names and can tell me about their morning on the way home. It's just 2-4 hour days each week, but such good structure for them and me. AND hugs! They give hugs now to each other without coaching, it's delicious.

Friends. I love spending time with their little friends. For the most part, they are pretty good at sharing and always hate to say good-bye. Here we are hanging with Mallory-I love this pic.

Aimee! That app does exist! My dad has it, I think. I can't remember what it's called though.

I can't believe how big the girls are getting and I love reading about their personalities!

Congrats on your 7 days. It feels good to weed out the old draft blogs and post old pics. Thanks!! :)

I SOOOOO agree with you about the Limo glass. We too engage our children while driving, and purposely bought the car without the DVD player so they could learn to enjoy their surroundings. But they DO NOT stop talking. Ever. And my mom lives 6 hrs away, and that's a rough trip without the limo glass. Just so daddy and I could have a grown up conversation once in a while...ahhh...every mom would buy one. Every.Single.One. :)Enjoy your day! :)
