Video Clip of the Week - Christmas!

Our Christmas was relatively calm and quiet... a far cry from next Christmas I'm sure! Christmas isn't over for our family yet as my parents will be here next week and we'll open more gifts then. For now though, here are a few of the gifts the boys received...
A sweet basketball hoop! They've already figured out how to dunk.

Some new Baby Einstein DVDs!

Yep, it's what you think it is.... leashes!

A push-toy with clacking ducks!

And Tyler received this lovely rash. It started with a few spots yesterday afternoon and by this morning looked like this. I took him to Urgent Care this morning and the verdict is it's just a virus. Good news is the rash doesn't bother him at all!

And now, on to the video!

(Just so we're clear... Nick and I have no problem using leashes. When you have three active toddlers who won't hold hands yet, a leash is a safe way to go. I mentioned to my friend a few weeks ago that leashes would have been nice when I took the boys out to play in the snow. I was scared to death one would run into the road while I was corralling the other two - thus I made them stay on the front porch. When used properly I believe a leash is perfectly acceptable for families with multiples, or just multiple young kids!)

So cute! I think those leashes are the best looking ones I've ever seen. Kids are so much happier with the little bit of freedom they allow than when they are carried or held tightly by the hand. Two and a half more days!

I used a leash with my son when he traveled with my mom and I in Seattle when he was 18 months. He loved it, because it gave him the freedom he so craved!

P.S. Those giggles were great!

I used leashes on occation also. I got a lot of mean comments.
I taught the girls to hold my hand very early. I put two on one hand holding my fingers and one on the other hand. I was usually alone when I went out with the girls, so they learned out of necessity.
Don't let people's mean comment or stares bother you. You are Mom and know what is best and safe for your boys.
