Things I Wish I Had Caught on Camera...
(But I Didn't)
***Porter's scrunched-up, clenched-teeth scowl when it's medicine time.
***How Ben scales up the wicker shelves and dangles from the top at meal time so he can eat off the plate while I'm still filling it.
***How the expression in Henry's eyes change in a split second from adoration to attack-mode when a lock of my hair blows in the breeze of the ceiling fan.
**The smackdown that Uncle Norman delivered to poor baby Henry when they met face to face in the foster room.
**Penny spinning in circles while chasing her tail... on the stairs. Penny rolling down half a flight of stairs while chasing her tail.
**The Olympic hurdles event that my two younger children staged for the kittens, using child legs as the hurdles and the feather wand to entice the boys to run the race (Eloise stayed in my lap and waited for the women's heat instead). Actually I have pictures of that one, but the kittens are a total blur. We'll try again tomorrow.
Something I Did Catch on Camera...
(The Sparkle Ball Princess)
Miss Eloise discovered the joy of sparkle balls over the weekend.
She spent the bulk of the day on Saturday chasing,
and carrying her precious sparkle balls.
She fiercely guarded her prize from the boys... growling at them if they even thought about touching them. Miss Petite Princess (all 2 pounds of her) dominated her three 5-pound brothers, who meekly deferred to her wishes.
Washing up the Paw-of-Doom just in case one of her brothers made a move on her green sparkle ball.
When she was done playing with the sparkle balls, Eloise deposited them underneath the table (behind her in this photo) to keep her siblings from putting boy cooties on her toys.
I offered her a gold medal, but all she wanted was the gold sparkle ball...
and the orange one...
or maybe the gold one again.
