Round and round we go

Last week M was out of town for work so I was trying to perform our morning routines with only half our parenting resources. I had L in her bouncy seat in the middle of E's room so that the futility I was feeling at trying to get E in a diaper wasn't complete: L, at least, was being entertained. E noticed L's squeals and realized that with one act, she could score a double-whammy by both exasperating me further and turning up the decibals on her little sister's happy exclamations. So E started running in circles around L. The two of them were laughing so loudly that it sounded like we were hosting a party, albeit one at 6:30 in the morning. E finished her last lap and staggered to the floor. She had a big-eyed look of wonder on her face. She gestured vaguely toward the light hanging in the corner of her ceiling and said, "Look, Mama! The whole house is turning!" Pin It
