Silly Things My Kids Do

Cara is just slightly obsessed with the character Rapunzel from Disney’s Tangled. At a play date a few weeks ago she adored trying on another little girl’s long blonde wig. Since we don’t have a long blond wig at our place, Cara had to improvise using a tan blanket and her brothers’ pirate scarf to hold everything in place. This picture cracks me up as she looks more like she belongs in a Christmas pageant.


Allie and Grandma Sandy came up with a game where Allie gets wrapped up like a taco. It is a riot to hear her say, “I’m an Allie taco!”


Keeping with the Rapunzel theme, the boys started pretending to be Flynn Rider. It was funny because one day I noticed they were running around with this old purse my mom brought over for the girls to play with. They were fighting over it and I asked them, "Why are you guys fighting over Cara’s purse?!?” That is why Eli stopped, put his hand up and said, “No mom, it’s not a purse. It’s a satchel! And I’m Flynn Rider!” Okay then.


Their imaginations continued to astound me as Eli opened his satchel to show me that they had “stolen” one of Cara’s princess crowns…just like in the movie.


The girl roommates in our house are starting to get into some serious mischief when they are supposed to be sleeping. Even though I was none too happy to find that Cara had climbed into Allie’s crib, I do absolutely love this cute picture!


The boys can often be found running around engaged in foam sword fights. Matt and I had to buy swords just to protect ourselves when they want to have a big play fight. Once in a while I will come around the corner and see this…


I think the words that came out of his mouth were, “Join my pirate crew mom, or WALK THE PLANK!”



  1. Cute, cute, cute.

    Just wanted you to know that your boys are not the only ones enamored by Flynn Rider. Derek has asked for a satchel for his birthday.
