Jack Sprat

Jack Sprat could eat no fat.
His wife could eat no lean.
And so between them both, you see,
They licked the platter clean.

These girls.

Want some proof that food preferences/tastes are hard wired, not totally learned.  Watch these two eat.

They were introduced to the same foods at the same time at the start of life.  They have been encouraged in the same way.  They eat every meal side by side.  I fill their plates with the EXACT same things, in the exact same arrangements.

One could just eat bread.
The other could just eat greens.
And so between them both, you see,
They licked the platter clean.

 Kate just 'shared' her salad with her sister.  'Cause she no like saaaaalad.

K is for Kate
K is for Tiss (kiss)
K is for k-k-k-krazy.

An education professional I am not.  Why is this evident, you ask?  Well, because, I LOVE that little exchange up there.  I make them repeat it because it's k-k-k-kute.  I would never even THINK to correct them!

Krazy is taking three babies to the zoo on Spring Break Friday by yourself to meet a (hopeful) new friend and try to make a good impression.

"Lauren, wanna make out?" "No, Momma." "Fine, I'll make out with Daddy." "Ummmm, that would be so krazy!"

Kate's krazy hair.  "Momma, I have so many rectangles...rectangles hurt so bad when you brush them."

Taking the girls to see Sesame Street Live and literally running into Cookie Monster and Ernie before the show!  I seriously thought Lauren might have a stroke.

How big is this guy!!!??!  Almost one, you know!?  Army crawling everywhere, pulling up, eating table food, growing teeth, saying 'Momma'....big boy.

How much faster weeds grow!  I'm a little nervous about the thick, tall brush that is our backyard, but the girls are fearless - until there's a bug sighting!

Krazy how much fun I'm having...
