The twins can do a not-terrible job of writing their names, with help, of course. Except they call it "writing all my letters!" I wish I could show you. Tonight, I'm babysitting them and their cousins, their mom's sister's kids, because it's their mom's birthday party. The sister has a ten year old boy and a seven year old girl. Not a terrible evening, but interesting.
The twins' dad gave me two cards to have the kids write and draw on for their mom. I always love writing with them; if they're up for it, I may actually practice letters with them some. They love letters.
Of course it's reflected backwards (thank you photobooth), but that's their rendition of "to mommy" on the front - Lilly's on top, Patrick's underneath.
Goals for next week: Do a playdate with Essie, and take them to the butterfly show at the conservatory. If I calculated right, I'm working approximately 41 hours here from Monday to Friday. Plus still Thursday evening, then we go out of town on Friday evening - but it's to celebrate good friends' wedding, so completely worth it.
