Dancing Diva!!

From the second Cambree could walk she was dancing! She use to watch the movie Rio over and over and over again and dance along with the birds. The beginning sequence was her favorite.... and let me tell you her little legs can move fast! She will dance along to any song! Her favorite right now is "I like to move it move it" from Madagascar 2.  Then she surprised me and started doing the splits during her dances... yes the SPLITS. I knew right then (okay I knew before) that she is going to be a star! A dancing star! I have been waiting for my lil girl to turn 3 so she could officially start dance classes.  I have been on the look out for a good dance class and luckily one fell into my lap.  We live in off base housing in a housing area called Linden Oaks. There is this group for it on Facebook (of course) and this lady started talking about a new dance studio that was opening up just down the street from us. How perfect is that? Fate? Destiny?? (What, I'm excited!) Naturally I signed Cambree up and dance classes start June 18th! I signed her up in a combo class of tap, ballet, and tumbling.  Luckily a cute little girl from church is in the same class as Cambree so today Kimmi and I took our girls out shopping for the class. We were on a mission to find tap shoes (could you die?! Cambree in TAP shoes?!), ballet shoes (again could you die?!) and of course a leotard.. but lets be honest at her age of course I'm buying her one with a tutu!! I wanted a cute pink one but I found this amazing black one! It is to die for! We took the girls back to try them on in the changing rooms and I heard Kimmi squeal first... her daughter found an adorable pink one. I had Cambree try on the black one and I was in love!!! I'm telling you... Cambree in this tutu... she is destined to be a star!!! Well I came back off my cloud as we tried on tap shoes. Ohhh my gosh... can you say melt down? Cambree was screaming... loudly. Naturally as any mother with a screaming child does.. I started to sweat.. and get flushed. There is nothing worse than a screaming child... unless it is a screaming child you are trying to get to fit into a tap shoe!! It was truly one of the most embarrassing moments I've had as a mom.  Anyway we purchased our items and of course Cambree insisted on wearing the tutu all day.  I let her tap tap tap in the bathroom with her tap shoes for a minute and boy was she excited when she found out the loud noise those shoes made.  I had to pry them off of her and hide them!! I am sooooo excited for these dance classes.  It is one thing to put a girl in dance classes because it would be cute... it is another to put a girl who LOVES to dance in dance classes and see her blossom! I'm so excited for my lil dancer :)

The wheels on the bus go round and round!

So I'm sitting in my amazing new Mothers Day lounge chair with my iPad on my lap and some earphones on and I thought I should jot down a few of the funny things that have happened around this crazy house before I forget. Let's start with the toilet. Yes, the toilet. It seems to be the newest fascination of my twins. If I forget even for a split second to close the bathroom door the twins will seize the opportunity and run in there. It is usually just when I have gotten comfortable on my lounge chair and I'm sipping on a drink that I will hear it. The most dreaded noise... The splish splashing noise of two little stinkers playing in the toilet. Ugh!!! They are so happy doing it too. Buddy LOVES to throw toys in there now too. That only turned into a real problem one day when I didn't feel like sticking my hand in the toilet to retrieve a Lego and a bath toy Buddy threw in there... I heard the flushing sound and was like noooooo... Apparently Keri wasn't aware of the toys lurking in the royal throne and down the toys went. Cambree is usually my source of constant entertainment. She is three years old and I'm positive she is the funniest person to have ever walked the earth. Currently she is obssessed with Octonauts & Doc McStuffins. Two shows on the Disney channel. Cambree drives me crazy all day asking to watch Octonauts & Doc McStuffin... What is worse is she demands a CERTAIN EPISODE! Apparently her favorite is the ghost whale episode. OCTONAUTS MOMMY! GHOST WHALE! Now while I knew it was crazy a 3 year old was requesting a certain episode I certainly wasn't prepared for her to have the show MEMORIZED! She can recite the episode while she watches it. This is a sign i either let her watch too much tv or she is gonna be amazing in life! The twins definately keep me busy. A day with them goes something like this.. Duel screaming around 7am... Then a race out the bedroom door to avoid a diaper change. Changing Buddy's diaper is like wrestling with an alligator. He trashes and thrashes around.. By the end of the diaper change I'm certain I've gotten my exercise in for the day. Then it is off to the sippy cup madness. I fill up two sippy and hand them out and the fun begins. Ashley will take hers and attempt to take Buddy's too. This causes crying typically. Lets face it i think Ashley is a sippy cup hoarder. She loves to take Cambree's too. If Buddy manages to hold onto his cup the second he makes the mistake of putting it down, Ashy will grab it. She is fast too. Another one of Ashley's favorite past times is taking Cambree's favorite toys and running away with them. Cambree will scream and chase after her but Ashy is strong. She will have a death grip on those toys. Ashley also enjoys pulling Cambrees locks.. Especially while cambree is getting a diaper change. Yes, I think lil Ashy is quite possibly a lil tyrant. She runs our house for sure. The thing is she is so smart too. I fear for the other two ;) Well I just noticed the time.. It is the most glorious time of the day! NAP TIME! I put the twins down for a nap and get some free time while Cambree watches.. Wait for it... Octonauts lol. I sure love these munchkins but boy do they give me a run for my money!
