On Thursday, Paprika had a friend over for a few hours (it makes her sound so grown up to say that). They played in the kiddie pool in the backyard, and had a grand time painting. The easel painting ended up becoming finger painting...then body painting. Even Ginger got to join in and ended up with paint all over her, as well. (What can I say, it ended up being a three bath day).

One thing that I'm noticing: Paprika had so many beautiful baby clothes that I saved with such care to hand down to Ginger. And now, they are getting absolutely destroyed by Ginger. I guess I was able to manage the mess more when there was just Paprika, but now that we have a backyard and Ginger does everything Paprika's just futile. Most of her clothes are stained, worn, and very loved at this point. Oh well, that's what I'd call a "good problem," right?

Happy Weekend! :-)

I was JUST saying the same thing to my husband! I think with just Josie I was able to monitor her clothes and stuff better and we def. weren't outside and doing as much as Maggie does because she wants to be just like Josie, so her clothes are getting trashed! Food stains, dirt, markers, etc...oh well they are only clothes:)

Have you tried soaking the clothes in Oxy Clean? Zane is so messy and stains everything. Soaking in it for a couple hours gets everything out!

That sounds like so much fun. We have the 2nd-child-has-ruined-the-first-child's-nice-clothes thing going on in our house... oh well... we won't be able to resell those special things, but that's ok! :)
