Fill 'er up

The other morning, the kids woke up earlier than normal. Groaning in my bed, I realized that neither of them were crying or asking for anything. They were simply entertaining each other and laughing (such sweet sounds). I could hear Lucy say, "here Owen....here's a bear. And here's a book. And here's a giraffe, etc." So I let them be and jumped in the shower.
When I walked in their room a while later, I found every toy, shoe, and book we own, sitting in Owen's crib:
Along with Owen:
It felt like a Where's Waldo book and definitely made me laugh. Whatever keeps them happy! (and buys me 30 minutes of freedom).

How creative of Lucy, sort of like her Mama!

Owen didn't complain at all. He just sat there, check out his surroundings. Hilarious.

LOL! That is so funny!! That makes me so excited for Weston to have a sibling someday (and for future sibling to have Weston). Your kiddos are adorable!

Love this. Totally know what you mean. Uneven as it seems, sometimes 30 min. of peace is worth the 45 min. of cleaning up later.

Is Owen in there in the first two pictures? And you know what's sad? My first thought was -- ooohhh, that would be a great time to vacuum! that should tell you what my kids' rooms look like.

Nicole said...

LOL that is hilarious! What a sweetie Lucy is, she just wanted to share everything with her brother. SO cute!

Sara said...

that is the funniest thing I've seen all day. Awesome

I love it when the older children toss toys into the crib for the baby! Reed does it for Owen in the mornings sometimes, and Owen sometimes does it for Aiden during (unsuccessful) naptimes.

We never get such spectacular results, however. Something about nearly all the toys being kept downstairs . . .

haha! cute. owen was probably so happy with all of his toys at easy access. it's cute that they just play in their room and crib. somehow i missed the memo on that one!
