I have this huge long post that is dying to be written. The words are eluding me. I've been working on it for days. I am seeing life with new eyes and my heart is totally changing - these are very good things. So I try to write it down and I find that what I write just sounds stupid.
Just thought I'd share that.
In other news, I took my kids for a walk today. After having to turn around after two blocks because B forgot to pee before we left, and after she almost got run over while I was helping J find his flip-flop that S had knocked off his foot, we finally made it to the sidewalk a few blocks up the street where I could finally breathe again.
I figured, since I'm trying to start a photography business and all, I should bring my camera along and get some pictures of my own kids.
I have to admit, I don't know why getting them to smile/stand still/look at the camera/not throw temper tantrums is so difficult for me. Other people's kids smile/stand still/look at the camera/don't throw temper tantrums for me! Sheesh!!
But this one turned out kind of cute. Because it didn't require smiling/standing still/looking at the camera.
And at least they are all looking at the camera here. It only took me saying, "Ooookay...how about we all say what costumes we want to wear? How about we all pretend we're happy! How about I make you snickerdoodles? How about, um ... Say HI DADDY!"
That got 'em. They'll do anything for Daddy.
