Welcome to the Roe household blog. We're attempting to post 365 days of pictures in a Roe. Cork and I have been married since 2002 and welcomed identical daughters in August of 2009 after a struggle with infertility. Our girls were definitely worth the wait and I say they were destined to be here because they were conceived on my birthday, due on my sister's birthday and born on my grandma's birthday. What are the chances of that! We welcomed our third daughter in June of 2012. We all fell in love with her right away. She has two amazing older sisters who love to watch over her.

Just Like Cinderella
I mopped my floor this morning. I'm not sure why. By the time the kids were in bed, I had cleaned up breakfast, snacks, dinner, and huge amount of sauce meant for our pepper steak stirfry dinner. I burnt myself when I was pouring it into the pan and it went flying. There was a bit of an over reaction on my part. Me, Zia, the stove, the cabinets, and the floor were covered.
While I cleaned up, the twins kept themselves occupied. I'm so glad they know how to entertain themselves. Can you sense the sarcasm? They were on the kitchen counter and I was paying more attention to my clean up than what they were doing. I looked up to find that they'd road mapped themselves. Wonderful.
Arya asked me today if I would throw her down the stairs. I told her I didn't think that would be much fun. She still wanted me to throw her. I didn't. Before I started to mop this morning, she took the mop from me. She told me she was just like Cinderella and was so excited to clean. I need to remember this and tell her to be like Cinderella more often.
