Three year olds are tough.

Do not let this sweet picture fool you...

 This boy is nothing but attitude lately.  Raising a three (almost 4) year-old isn't for sissies. photo IMG_3137_zpsb8faab77.jpg

And this girl...

That's the smile she gives us as she's dropping all her food on the floor.  Total sweetness.  Except for when she's smacking me in the face because, oh yes, she's hits now, too.

Summer in Virginia this year has been bizarre, yet wonderful.  Our normally brutal, scorching weather is now pleasant and dream-like.  We're outside almost all the time.

These three drive me insane most of the day, but we still manage to have a lot of fun.

A few days ago we went to see Disney Junior Live. photo IMG_3206_zpsddf71dd7.jpg

The show featured Jake and Sofia. The kids were captivated.  photo IMG_3200_zpsc3d58c0b.jpg  photo IMG_3202_zps7f322527.jpg

$24 spent on treats, yet Will was devastated that I wouldn't buy him the $25 light spinner.  It was pretty much all he talked about after the show.

For example:
Me: Wasn't it so cool seeing Jake??!?  What was your favorite part?
Will:  *sad, pathetic voice* I really wanted a Mickey Mouse spinner.
Me: I know, buddy.  I'm sorry we couldn't get one.
Will *angry voice* Go back there and get one RIGHT NOW!
Me: *Big, loud, heavy sigh*

Well, Mickey Mouse spinner aside, seeing Jake was so cool.  At one point, Peter Pan came flying across the stage.  "Look, Will, he's flying!" I exclaimed.  "That's why he has a rope attached to him," Will explained.  Oh.  OK then.

No dogs or baby sisters allowed in the play room.

And, last but not least, Will can "roller blade" all by himself.  Well, he mostly just walks, but nonetheless, he's extremely proud of himself.

More fun to come soon!
