Just Another Fall Day
It is autumn.
The leaves fall.
We must pick them up. Ugh.
You’ve gotta take advantage of the sunny-not-too-cold days while they’re here.
But this year, there’s a problem. A certain someone has been on a fussy streak this week.
He just wants to be held.
I’ve got a solution though.
We rake together.
I started out letting him look outward, but the raking motion proved to be too wobbly for his tired neck, so I flipped him around and we were back in business.
I don’t like raking very much.
At least I had some helpers.
Nest with sleeping baby birds:
Fort, fighting against Stickyfoot:
Then somehow, they convinced me to play along with them. I got to be Stickyfoot. After a mild attack (I couldn’t let them get too crazy with me since I was still wearing the baby after all) I convinced them to go back to playing birds.
Monkey instructed me to be the baby bird and told me to go take a nap. Since I’m a good baby bird, I obeyed.
Just like any good Mama bird, he took my picture.
How ever do I get myself into these situations?
The things we do for our kids!
Good thing The Chief will be here tomorrow to the raking.
Bud, you’re going to be fussy again tomorrow, right? Please get me out of having to rake!
Yea, that’s probably not going to happen now that I just posted pictures about how I can still rake even with a fussy kid.
Way to go Twighee! You just blew that excuse wide open!
