Tired

When kids are tired they are nuts. Irrational, cranky, irritable, loud. For whatever reason church wears the kiddos out! So Sunday lunch consists of a thrown together meal with irrational, cranky, irritable, loud kids. Sounds lovely doesn't it. Today Isaac was inconsolable. Everything made him cry at lunch today, and not just a whiny cry to was a full fledged, ear piercing wail. John and I had tried to appease him but he wouldn't hear of it. He wouldn't drink his juice, wouldn't eat his lunch, and would not calm down. Finally I asked Eli (the oh-so-wise 3 year old) to calm his brother down. He proceeds to talk to him. The conversation began with "Talk to me sweetie" which is how I usually start MY conversation with them when I am trying to talk rationally with an irrational toddler. Eli proceeds to tell Isaac a silly story which makes Isaac stop crying. Dumbfounded I said, "Hey Eli see if you can get Isaac to drink his juice." He pause his silly story and said - "Isaac drink your juice." Isaac picks up his sippy cup and drinks his juice, still listening to Eli. Clearly, John and I are not in control here.

Look forward to it, but hand on to what you got. Babies are wonderful and it just keeps getting better!

adorable!!! Isaac is probably getting worn out by how many kids we have in there on Sunday's now... he's not used to all the kids we have had in there lately!
