These girls are brilliant.

Briar is watching the “ball” on the tv. She is standing so close her nose can almost touch the screen. The ball, if you are not familiar with it, is the dancing DVD icon that occupies the screen until the disc is inserted. Yup, she picked the amazing dancing ball over the princesses.

Avery is sucking the bag of wipes again. The cat is swatting at her head. The dog continues to keep her most private part clean, every so often threatening to love the skin off of Avery.

My afternoon work at home mom approach sometimes rivals the brilliance of the Montessori style.
