Isn't it amazing what a change in energy can be made over just a couple of days? For example, it's almost comical that a weekend that started out like this ...
... could end up in one like this:
Yes, that is a view into one of our bathrooms. Everyone is fine ... the door is the true victim in the end. Long story short, I was out for the night and Riley shut herself in the bathroom at lightening speed and pulled open a vanity drawer that kept the door from being able to be opened. Thankfully, Kevin was smart in how he reacted, first drilling a 'peep hole' into the lower portion of the door (knowing where Riley was by the sounds of what she was doing, of course, and knowing he wouldn't harm her) so that he could keep tabs on her as he broke through the top portion of the door.
I am thrilled that I am able to chuckle at the smashed door, realizing how convenient it is to holler for toilet paper now. "Toilet paper, please!" This could have been a very different post and I thank the Lord that isn't the case. I am also happy I haven't pushed so hard for those solid wood doors ... yet. =)
Riley Elayne certainly did "make three" in our family as our first daughter when she was born on December 5, 2008. We were then blessed with the birth of our second daughter, Sophie Noelle, born in December 2010 and our third, Harper Quinn, born in July 2013.
Join my journey through motherhood for the first, second and third time as I share stories, ask questions, and demonstrate my undying love for my amazing two. Riley may have made three ... but Sophie made four and Harper made five.
