Because when Mommy sets up for a headshot shoot – I need to test my settings! bahaha
How. IS. SHE STANDING.
How on God’s Green Earth has this little sunshine been on this planet for already HALF OF A YEAR. She will be 7 months old in a few days – and although it makes me sad to think there will soon be no more babies in this house… it makes me happy to know that Chech and her are growing into best friends. <3
This life is chaos. My family is a beautiful, traveling circus – perfectly combining entertainment, excitement and suspense all in one ball of energy. Will the tightrope walker make it across the line? Of course – she’s a professional. Will I make it through the week? Of course – because I have no other option. And I’m also a professional Mom.
And what makes a circus even more interesting? Really awesome animals. Elephants. Lions. Tigers. Rare, giant creatures, fascinating to look at – who’ve learned impressive tricks. That’s pretty much what my kids are, just sans the giant part. Fascinating creatures, who’ve learned tricks like saying “Thank You”, or who can sit up in a high chair and smile at people.
So today, while this nasty cold front moves through, and the clouds steal my sunshine…. I’ve got these two wonderful beings to brighten our home. <3
Santa brought us a bubble machine.
My secret Mom Motive for that request from the old fat man? The ability to work outside with an entertained 3 year old. I had ZERO idea that my crazy pup would also find it supremely satisfying as well. Just be honest with your inner self for a sec – act like popping a bubble doesn’t provide you with some kind of crazy gratification!
Regardless – cut to Jack & Chech, running carefree through the yard. Popping Bubbles. Ignoring the Poop Landmines. Just chilling, being kids. So I took a few photos with my iPhone…
And then this. HYSTERICAL.
