Now with the oldest in school, the dynamics have changed.
I forgot how fun this different dynamic is.
The middle two tend to prefer pretend play a lot more than Carter. He is Mr. Actual Factual, so most of the kid-led activities when he is around are very structured and real. Everett, on the other hand, has a vivid imagination and a love for Sissy Lulu and the babies, so we get all kinds of helping and pretend play.
He also likes to dress up or change clothes periodically. When he spotted the twins in their "wife beaters", he quickly ran to his room to change clothes. He also decided that they were going to work out, so sweat bands were a must (I nearly got beaten for calling it a head band...which was quite fitting, based on the shirt of choice).
I think he's more handsome than Richard Simmons, but he does sure posess some of that charisma!
Bald babies need sweat bands too! Elias had a tough work out. Thankfully his brother had him covered.
