or Monday...

This is real life...and to show my sweet friend Carrie that girls wear their underwear on their heads too...maybe its because she has older brothers!

I am so goal oriented, and so organized in my thinking that I just couldn't restart this project unless it was a beginning of something. Well, today is the beginning of March...March 1st. And while it does bug me that it is two months into a new year is still a beginning. It is a sickness, I know. The other thing I know about myself is that I set high expectations. Usually too high that I could actually meet them. So toady, March 1st, a new beginning, I am lowering the bar. I can't very easily rename the blog, but instead of a daily picture, I'm going to try a weekly picture. So each week I will pick a theme (with the help of you!) and try to get a picture within that theme. Then on Saturday, I will post the picture. I guarantee I will take lots of pictures just trying to get the perfect one to fit that theme, but there is less pressure to do that every day. I think I can handle once a week. If by June I am not being consistent, you may see this change to once a month...

So give me some theme ideas...I will put them in a jar and draw one out every Sunday and then post on Saturday.

Here's to new beginnings...

New Hair

So after a month away and feeling like a complete failure for it, I am picking myself up and say "oh well!" and trying again...

It is nice to sort of have a photo diary of our life, so I am not giving up. I've already had my worst fear with starting this project happen, so there is no where else to go now.

Yesterday, Morgan cut her pigtails off. You can read about it here. This is the resulting rescued hair cut. It is darling, but it makes her look like she is not a toddler anymore. Which...I guess at 3 1/4, she isn't.

He played a little offense, a little defense, but this was my favorite shot - center! #53

We are choosing to ignore the last few - almost 13!

Some days I am optimistic - I see the glass half full... ...other days I think I am never able to accomplish anything and the glass is definitely half empty!

Nighttime ritual...

...this sweet boy almost always finds his way out to the sofa about an hour after he has been put in bed and is sound asleep. If I manage to be in bed before he gets up, then he finds his way to my side of the bed and squishes me into the middle of the bed until I'm uncomfortable enough to wake Mike to put him back to bed. It is still somehow sweet that he is such a cuddler.

September 3, 2009

What??? After 51 posts in a row, I missed a day! Completely missed! I didn't even think about the fact that I needed to take a picture. Didn't even pick up the camera - probably didn't even look at the camera! And when I think back to yesterday, there were plenty of fun things I could have taken pictures of...the least of which was Jeffrey fully clothed and sopping-wet from throwing the hula hoop into the pool. Oh well - failure is one of my biggest fears and it wasn't that bad...I'll move on and keep trying to post every day!

My attempt to get the kids to sit for a picture. I think I better leave it to the professionals. They wouldn't cooperate as to where to sit, or move, or smile and look like they were having fun...which I was not after about 2 sec.

Today is blank. That's kinda how I'm feeling today. Nothing looked picture interesting today. And really I just didn't want to take pictures today. Tomorrow...

At the end of the evening, everyone scatters and mommy does dishes. Not my ideal, but it is. I have a friend that can not leave dirty dishes in her kitchen. She will not go to bed until her kitchen is beautiful. What a wonderful thing to wake up to! And yet, for some reason I can't get that same uneasiness about leaving a dirty kitchen. It is more of a "have to" chore. I know that means I should train my children to clean the kitchen, but even that sounds like a big chore...another chore for the mommy. It really is a never ending chore list, isn't it!
