I have been so busy lately- I thought it would be fun to snap some pictures of my girls.
You know, before they start telling me who`s boss and asking for money.
Oh, wait- the one already does that.
In my brief history of being a writer on a blog…
…my hus has always told me that my traffic slows considerably the days I post pictures of my kids.
(That was you guys)
I guess it took me years to figure out I wasn`t the only person who was proud of her children. And yes, I know my old posts like this, with 50 pictures of baby Elle with her head tilted 5 degrees differently on each picture can sure be BOR-ING!
Hey, I am learning.
I didn`t go through swollen ankles, going under the knife, and taking Vicadin home with me– for nothing.
(I am a C-section girl)
Plus, this is my space.
SO HERE… is my shout-out!
I love my Elle-belly and my Laila-consuala.
Oh, really- you thought ‘Belly’ was Elle`s real middle name?
Well then, I can`t help you.
Here I said, “Can mommy, PLEASE take a picture of you?”
And she is really saying, “I am looking at you, mommy”.
As she looks at the floor, with her arms folded.
That is so Elle. There is no better way to describe her.
Wait, where does she get that?
I mean WHO ELSE in this family is opin…ion…ated… ?
If you know us, you are laughing now.
Well, it might not make you laugh– but you`ll know the answer.
(A. is G)
Here I said, “Please get up on the couch with Laila, so mommy can take a nice picture of you two.”
Elle did try. But she was holding an eraser (why?) and as she climbed past Laila, she bumped her in the face with it.
Now Laila is crying.
And Elle is saying,
“I really sorry, baby”. Over and over.
But it`s over for Laila.
And now she sees her Giver Of Life.
Really. What kind of mother keeps taking pictures when her baby is crying?
WHAT KIND I ASK YOU!
Yes. Right. I need to put my camera down, and go gather up my screaming baby.
Plus, I hear small children in the cereal cupboard, and the sound of chips in mouth.
Later. Love, Jenny
Todays`s SSS (Super Simple Saver) is from Christine!!
Thanks a mill!
“This is a sanity saver…. sometimes when my children are fighting and I am too upset to deal with it, I give myself a timeout on the basement steps. A little prayer and some time to cool-down and I’m ready to be the mom again. They are usually quietly waiting to see what the verdict will be”.And-
“Here’s an electricity saver……run your washer or dishwasher at night time when electric is cheaper. Never quite sure how much this saves or if it does at all, but it’s worth a try. i like to think that at least somethings working while I sleep”.
