We live in an old house. 60 years old to be exact. We have no lights in our front room. Well except for a big weird light box that only shown light on the floor directly below it. So what did we do? We tore out that hideous light box. Installed 16 next can lights and repainted the kitchen.

Chandler has been talking about having a pirate party for a year now. So we threw him one. Luckily for us we were able to spend it with a lot of our family! David was our leader on the treasure hunt. Chandler kept saying how "scary" pirate daddy was.

Why is it that your second child becomes a toddler so much faster than your first? Where has my baby gone? I just love this little Brinner! She is so much fun and we love having her running around our home.
A few things to know:
*She loves to swing. While we were in Blanding last week Grandma took the kids to the park (she is brave). Brinlee just loved swinging, she even pumps her little legs.
*She loves her baby doll. A few weeks ago she was sick with a double ear infection and strep throat. She was a VERY sick little girl. She wanted her baby by her the entire time. Mommy got her baby a towel for her head to and Brinlee was very happy to see her baby was getting better with her. Her baby is very loved and knows how to say mama (well brin says it for her). There is not a day that Brins doesn't have her baby in her arms. She is a very good mom.
*She loves to cheese it up. Just look at the picture, this kid really loves to have her picture taken. Anytime a camera is out she puts on her cheese face and is ready.
Brinlee will be 18 months on the 20Th. I just can't believe she is ready to go to nursery! We love our Brinner.

Brinlee is my sweetie. She hardly cries and has always been a very happy little girl. That is until recently. She is teething and it is extremely miserable around our house. You know the routine: up in the middle of the night, never wanting anything to eat, short fuse(baby and mommy), and all the whining. Pray for me!
Now you know that let me tell you a little story.....
Today while the kids were playing in the playroom I heard a CRASH and then Chandler crying. That's right Chandler, normally it is Brin and I was a little freaked out. I got up to go see what had happened. Chandler met me half way and told me the whole terrible story. Short Version: Brinlee was stealing his toys and he told her no so she pulled his hair and then hit him in the face (according to Chandler). He also said "She is extra mean to me today!"
I got after Brin and put her to bed then had a talk with Chandler. I told him that little sisters don't know how to share and so big brothers need to be a good example. Plus, she a super sad so no matter what you do she isn't going to be happy. At the end of our talk Chandler looked at me and said "I think we could sell her. Is that a good idea?" Hahahahahahaha! I couldn't stop laughing. Kids. I told him no and he was very unhappy that I didn't agree. Afterwards I thought about a poem I use to love in elementary school.

One kid that will buy this old sister for sale?

It's funny but I think we all at times have wanted to sell our sisters. I know I did!
