#tbt To when she was practicing being a model. Today she was strapping her sandals on, and I said, "why do you want to put your shoes on?" "Uh-cuz, I said so." #myaubreyaveline #reallifewitha2yearold #sassypants #threenager #imintrouble

Once she got clean, she needed to decorate herself. . . . . . #myaubreyaveline #reallifewitha2yearold #stickerart #shopkins #stickers

When you look around after scrolling through Pinterest and say, "Hey, who was supposed to be watching Aubrey?" And then remember you're the only one home. . . . . . #fridayfun #iamthemom #myaubreyaveline #reallifewitha2yearold #nutella #welovenutella #whowaswatchingher #iguessitsmyownfault #socute #showertime

I mean really, what is more fun than building Legos on the floor of Mom's bathroom? . . . . . #myaubreyaveline #reallifewitha2yearold #legos #pigtails #finallylonghair #socute #lastbaby #stopgrowingup #saycheese

Sometimes being a mom is so hard, and sometimes it is so amazing. Today we had one of those infrequent, perfect moments. Darcy wanted to choose who said the prayer over our lunch, and she chose Aubrey, so she could help her. It was such a sweet moment listening to my little girls pray about being nice to each other. 😍 . . . . . #mydarcydo #myaubreyaveline #reallifewitha2yearold #prayer #teachthemyoung #ilovemyfamily #sohardandsoworthit #sahm #sahmlife #wahm #lds #mormon

I found the missing cup. It's been gone for a few weeks. It had milk in it. 🤢 . . . . . #myaubreyaveline #reallifewitha2yearold #sippycup #yuck #curdledmilk #lostandfound

She just curled up next to me and fell asleep. ♥️ . . . . . #myaubreyaveline #reallifewitha2yearold #iloveher #sleepingbaby #blankie #lastbaby #sosweet

She said she doesn't want to go to bed, so now what am I supposed to do? 😂 . . . . . #myaubreyaveline #reallifewitha2yearold #naptime #ineedanap #idontwantto

You ever have a day when you have plan, but things just go crazy? One kid has been home because he's opted out of standardized testing, one only goes to school for half the day, one isn't old enough for school, and one pukes at school during HIS testing, and you have to pick him up early. BUT, I'm so so grateful for amazing friends, especially ones who brave the illness in my home and know that a ginormous Dr. Pepper from #sonic is exactly what I need! And I'm also grateful that I didn't make my bed, so my throw pillows were still stacked up by my desk, which is the perfect place for a toddler nap while I work. 😴♥️ . . . . . #thestruggleisreal #reallifewitha2yearold #drpepper #mycalebmonkey #mybrycieboy #mydarcydo #myaubreyaveline #naptime #ilovemyjob

She was doing this for several minutes before I actually pulled out the camera... It was so funny! And so random. But that's the way it is with her! #reallifewitha2yearold #myaubreyaveline #fartnoises #iblameherbrothers

You see this girl's creative styling today? My boys NEVER cared what clothes I put them in. My girls, on the other hand, are a completely different story. In spite of the smile, she is definitely ornery today. And that mood is my favorite. 😒 . . . #reallifewitha2yearold #myaubreyaveline #fashionista #littlemisssassypants

Umm, found this in my bed when I went to make it. No idea. #reallifewitha2yearold #myaubreyaveline #shedoesloveeggs

"Oh, she TP'd the bathroom." - Caleb, after seeing my dismay at Aubrey "putting away the toilet paper" for me. #reallifewitha2yearold #myaubreyaveline #mycalebmonkey #ihelpingmom

She wanted to wear a too-big, hand-me-down poofy skirt dress, covered in Shopkins bandages, with Nutella on her face. Sounds about right! #reallifewitha2yearold #myaubreyaveline #littlemisssassypants

I wish you could hear the snoring... She passed out on the floor following a ROYAL tantrum because we left the park. #myaubreyaveline #reallifewitha2yearold #ineedanap

I was gone for about 3 hours running errands this morning. Apparently that was way too long, because the milk hasn't moved and there's "nothing" to eat. #exceptcookiedough #reallifewitha2yearold #and6yearold #and9yearold #and12yearold #seriously #goodthingiboughtmilk

So... My toothbrush is missing. Which one of these kids looks like the culprit to you? #reallifewitha2yearold #myaubreyaveline #cutestnaughtygirl

She loves the camera, but just won't hold still! 😂😂😂 #reallifewitha2yearold #myaubreyaveline #littlecowgirl
