|Where is Emma?|
|There she is!|
I was SO lucky that my sister, Karen, and my friend, Jessica, came over this evening! The kids were a wreck after naps. OK, actually, Kendall was super-sweet, but then Emma and Clark were completely out-of-control which sent poor little Kendall over the edge as well (if only I could share the 30 seconds of video that I shot of them screaming and crying uncontrollably). Fortunately, Auntie Karen arrived and I was able to fix dinner (I sort of thought maybe that was the problem). And then Jessica arrived. Emma, in her hesitant and slightly anti-social way, sort of snubbed her and stuck to Auntie Karen like glue, but Kendall turned on the charm. She was completely happy to have a guest in the house. Clark gave a few sly looks and he too was hooked on our friend. She kept them happy while I got through bathtime with each one individually (have I mentioned how much I enjoy the one-on-one time?).
Things are quiet from the kids' rooms, so I'm crossing my fingers that they get a good night's sleep.
