Today was The Very Hungry Caterpillar. I googled craft ideas and found these paper chain caterpillars. The kids loved this craft and it kept them busy for quite awhile. Jude was able to do his by himself.
Evie enjoyed hanging with the big kids at the table.
When she got bored I put on our new favorite pandora station - Alice Russell radio. Our friends Larry and Heather introduced us to this station and we love it. It's chill yet energizing and makes great background music. I often don't like music playing when the kids are up because it ends up being noise on top of noise, but this is somehow different. The kids love it and Evie was dancing to it at the table. That girl loves music and loves to dance. Whenever she is fussy I put her in the backpack and turn on some music and it almost always makes her happy. Initially I would go to You Tube and play Ethiopian music, thinking it was the familiarity that she enjoyed. Last week I decided to chance it to see if she likes all music, not just Ethiopian, and it turns out that she does. We'll still keep playing Ethiopian music, though. If anyone has any recommendations for good Ethiopian music (and where to get it) please let me know in the comments. I would really appreciate it! :)
Oh and Indi did eventually get dressed for the day
