While riding the D.C. Metro subway system with one harried momma and one snoozing daddy, on your way to visit the National Christmas Tree in D.C., just go ahead and wreak havoc on the train by running wildly through the car, spinning on the poles, singing Christmas carols at the top of your six-year-old lungs, or by situating your seven- and nine-year-old selves right at the front of the subway car, pressing your faces to the window, and announcing in shrill gaiety to no one in particular, "Eight more stops!... Seven more stops!... Six more stops!... Oooooh! Tunnel! Tunnel! TUNNEL!"
And even though I MAY have loudly disclaimed any knowledge of who those "damned maniac children" belonged to, I was laughing on the inside.

They are so awesome-ly adorable. I let my maniacs do the same thing on the trolly. It's okay, really.

You have the cutest kids ever.
I have to ask, though, what's with the Princess Leah triplet thing? ;)

Woman do NOT mock the cinnamon buns. They are a thing of beauty. And totally keep our naturally curly hair tangle-free and out of our faces. Plus, they be cute, fo' rizzle.

I heart the D.C. subway. No, I'm not kidding. I am in love with it.
I would streak through the cars and act like a wild maniac if that were the price to pay so that I could ride it each day. Damn plains state.
