Jen over at Denton Sanatorium put out a challenge to write a real life post….but since i won’t be able to carry my camera around today i decided to take a look back at our “real” pictures….only a blogger would be proud to capture some of these moments…i admit …they make me laugh.
but…in the day to day madness of raising these kiddos i tend to think crazy thoughts….let me share
on days like this i think cooper will never like long car rides.
or boat rides…
i am never going to get a good family picture.
(we were going for a St. Patrick’s Day picture in case you are wondering about all the green :)
Christmas will never be calm and relaxing.
and then i look at this one…and think…hubby is very proud of himself…..he figured out how to help coop with his teething.
(the can is really not open….really its not)
and it makes me laugh…cause ya have to be able to laugh…we are figuring out this thing called parenting….and sometimes we have no idea what we are doing….and sometimes we do……
and through the screaming, slamming doors, tantrums, and everyday craziness…i think to myself that i would not have it any other way….
and of course..i usually don’t post about all the craziness, or complain about the real life stuff….every now and then I'll vent but i try not to be a complainer…can’t stand being around other people who complain….blogging keeps me positive, capturing the little life moments that i don’t want to forget…helps we slow down time just a bit…lets me tell the stories of our crazy adventure.
so now back to the laundry, the dog whining at the door, dinner to plan, leaves to rake, the stink bug i vacuumed up yesterday…and maybe a few minutes to have a cup of coffee before i have to pick up the kiddos.
