when daddy comes home.

nato has a wierd schedule. so sometimes he gets to come home in the middle of the afternoon. and basically, this is what happens.

please notice nato's face in that second picture. painful?


and yes, everyone takes a turn jumping off the "fort" as layne calls it. even if the landing hurt their back.

poor lila. she was scared, but laughing.

layne started mixing it up with some "skateboard tricks". no skateboard needed, i guess.

penelope declined the opportunity to jump and instead took a nap. i think this was wise on her part.

and where are the pictures of me jumping, you ask yourself.
oh please. do you honestly think i would participate in such hootinanny? however you spell that.

i'm far too mature for this.



far

mature.

and ya. if you must know, i peed on myself a little. ok? also, hells yes...i'm rocking some white shorts from walmart and they are high waisted. so get over it. i'm ok with hiding a few extra pounds in a high inseam. go with it.

thanks for the fun afternoon, nato. i love the way you play with our kids. you are such a good daddy. and you're hot in those scrubs. paging doctor nato.
just kidding. or am i?

yes, i'm kidding. don't get any ideas.

  2. awesome! glad to know we aren't the only big kids that let the little kids play on our couch... when my nephews come over, the pillows and cushions are off in .2 seconds and a fort or a game of pillow jail has begun! :)

  3. Next week try sliding down your steps in a sleeping bag. Equally dangerous and painful, but equally fun I swear. I can't wait til I send Larkin down the steps in a sleeping bag, do you think 3 months is old enough? After seeing this post I kinda with I was one of your children, because those are some good memories mama.

  4. LOL... this is amazing. I especially love that you and your hubs look like you are having even more fun than your kids.

  5. YOU ARE HILLARIOUS!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I love this! Way to jump in there and be a FUN mom! These are the things they will remember! Not how clean the house is, or if the dreser was dusted, or the floors swept. They will remember daddy coming home on his lunch break and momma jumping off the couch!

    LOVE THIS POST!

  7. Oh my my! I do love this for so many reasons! We had forts yesterday too, but no jumping just lots of building, getting bored, mommy cleaning up, and repeat...over and over. we needed a little jumping!

  10. I love this blog post! All of it. The thrill of an early afternoon home, the fort, your family jumping, and your display of maturity. Three times. Thanks for the smile.

  11. i believe i can fly...
    great photos.

    ReplyDelete
  12. oh my. you guys are so adventurous. that makes me nervous just looking at the pictures. plus, i can't jump more than about an inch so i'm kind of jealous.

    ReplyDelete
  13. Is Nato really a doctor? Do you guys play doctor? Do you own skimpy matching scrubs? Have I crossed the line? If this is wrong I don't want to be right.

  14. You have the special power of making my day! What a fun heartfelt post!
    Aw.... I just love to see you'll together. GOD BLESS!

    ReplyDelete
  15. Cutest family EVER. That picture Nato looks like he's flying.

    ReplyDelete
  16. Hahaha! This is awesome. You crack me up. And your hubs has some hops, man. Totes getting up there in the air!

  17. First- Go ahead rock those high wasted walmart shorts girl! I just had a baby too and I am rocking my own highwasted version. (Gotta tuck that extra skin/few lbs somewhere!) Also- I am promising to myself at this moment to let my kids jump off the couch and have a blast doing it (even though I am an orthopedic nurse and see the broken arms happening)it is totally worth it to see the fun in these pics!

    ReplyDelete
  18. Pretty sure Nato could make the running for the next super hero film in that airborne pic of him in his scrubs. Who says all superheros have to wear a mask?

  19. oh my word. i'm dying over here!!!!

  20. Soo funny and yes I was looking at those rockin' shorts and thinking I need some of those to hide my muffin top!

    LOVE the post!!

  23. Blahahahaha. Reminds me of what the Severn's do...."pillow lake" I believe.

  24. So, my son saw these pics fresh after leaving a friend's house (whose mom also lets her kids jump on the couch cushions) and he was like, "I'm the only one in the whole wide world who doesn't get to jump!" then he hung his head in shame.

    And I officially lost the little cool mom status I had. Tomorrow the cushions will be on the floor and jumping will commence.

    A woman has a reputation to uphold.

  25. @erin LOL!!! no NATO is a surgical sales rep. He sells hips and knees. And NO...not into role play. But thank you for asking. Hahahaha...

    ReplyDelete
  26. I just found your blog, and I have spent the last hour laughing out loud. You are freakin' hilarious, girl. Can't wait to read more! :)

    ReplyDelete
  27. high waisted things are HOT. possibly minus the post baby pooch.. but i don't see much of that hanging around your neighborhood. oh and i consider peeing yourself a little a sign that a good time is being had. after your bod becomes a baby interstate off ramp those standards drop off fast. i have to know.. how on earth do you guys not seriously kill yourselves? i mean nato is perpindicular! are those cushions made of space age magic foam or does he have some sort of grace ful landing position? amazing. impressive. well done circus parents. :)

  28. your afternoon makes me feel like the times we dress up our dog in my clothes for a good time is completely normal. i can't thank you enough.

    ReplyDelete
  29. for some reason i'm concerned that you are too postpartum fragile to be doing such things. but i guess one is tougher after 3, and i'm also a wuss.

    ps, thanks, now i know where to get some new shorts for my upcoming rolls!

  31. this is my favorite post ever.
    i love it.
    i can't even explain why.

    ReplyDelete
  32. I love that you allow everyone to pull the couch cushions off and jump on to them! I bet you are just such a fun mom!

    ReplyDelete
  33. These are sooo great! Gave me a huge smile to see your awesome pics. Those moments when you can all just play together are priceless! Go you for joining in the fun :)

    ReplyDelete
  34. Couple of things.... You and Lila have matching awkwardness going on in that 3rd photo from the bottom. Also you should have taken cue from Lila, you should be wearing a diaper whilst jumping, Lila however looks cute with hers half hanging out, you wouldn't. Looks like so much fun!
    Love, jenn

  35. You are totally rocking those white shorts. Love it.

    ReplyDelete
  36. It's worth having to replace the couch at some future date to make these memories. I think they'll know how to be great parents, too.

    ReplyDelete
  37. OMG... my heart skipped a beat after seeing those pics. You guys make a brave-happy family :)

    I found you blog to be exciting and fun. Started following you. May be I'll also turn brave some day ;)

    I am hosting my first Link-up party - Tea Time Thursdays. Would be glad to see you there :)

  42. Just so you know, I enjoy your high waisted shorts, and the fact that Lila's shorts are not high waisted and her little underwears are totally hanging out. It's adorbs.
