Wordful Wednesday

Angie over at Seven Clown Circus hosts a blog each Wednesday called "Wordful Wednesday".  It's for those of us that like to post pictures, but can't seem to let the picture speak for itself.

This is one of my most recent favorites.


Around 4 o'clock each afternoon, the crabbies make their way out of my 1 year-old triplets.  They no longer play nicely together.  They are no longer content with their toys.  They want Mommy.  They want attention.  They scream.  Loud.

Until...

Until the Praise Baby DVD is put on.  Then peace returns to our home (at least for 45 minutes) as six eyes are completely focused on the pictures moving across the screen and six perfectly formed ears are listening to calming worship music.  It becomes my favorite time of day.

What never ceases to amaze me, is that they watch the same DVD everyday.  And still, they're amazed by it!

What a great picture! I have a 17 month old (only one!) and she gets the crabbies about that time of day. Just when I'm trying to get in the kitchen and start dinner.

Your triplets are darling! Happy Wednesday!

Too cute! My girls were addicted to "God Made Me" and "God Made Babies" - whatever God made that ended up on a DVD they loved :) Thank God for those DVD's - those and Elmo.

That's melt down time at my house too. Your children are beautiful. I love the picture of peace being restored, and your header with the older kids holding the babies melts my heart. I'm so glad you played this week and hope to see you often.

We have praise baby, too! I love it, even though the goat scene creeps me out.
YOU know the one I mean!

Aw... what a cute picture!
I wonder what would happen if you weren't home at 4PM? Do their little internal clocks tell them where it's time to be?
That is just precious! This should win some kind of award as it is so rare to see three peas in a pod intently focused.
