Three under three

Xander and Isabelle (Zee) came to play with Matthew (Elizabeth was at gymnastics camp) so I had three children under the age of three to keep me entertained.

Zee has just learned to walk. She and Matthew had discussions over whose turn it was to push the little stroller, though she was a little confused about how to push - mainly using only one hand. She gained undisputed possession of the doll, so Matthew made do with his beloved drill. He actually wanted to walk train around but Xander felt this was not the thing to do. "Me train play. My want to play train." he said.

After a little while we decided to go to the park. I made a train. I strapped Matthew into the stroller. Zee rode in the wagon attached to the stroller. Xander got to ride Elizabeth's plasma car. He isn't quite big enough to push it all the way to the park, so I got him to put his feet up and I bumped it with the stroller while he steered. There was one scary moment on Percy when Xander decided he'd like to drive into the street (Percy is VERY busy these days). I was luckily able to grab him before any unfortunate flattening occurred. Xander is not used to being told off by Auntie "Mo-ey" - BIG EYES while I worked on getting my heart rate back to normal. He was as good as gold after that!

At first I wasn't going to let them get wet because we didn't bring bathing suits. But it's summer and they are kids so I decided what the heck ;)
