does he have mine
or is it his dad’s temper
nuclear family

This picture is proof that I can do Pinterest projects and that Facebook is not a total waste of time. Do you ever argue with your spouse about where your child gets certain traits? Sometimes my husband and I can’t decide who he gets his characteristics from because my husband and I have similar temperaments. 



Day 7 – 30 Day Photography Challenge

Day 7 is Love

I thought about this for most of the morning. How do I take a picture of love that no one else has done? Should I take a picture of a thing? We were in the car for a lot of the day and I was thinking about taking a picture of my son with his grandma. We went to my mom’s house today, but stopped to pick up lunch at KFC. Then we were sitting in line at McDonald’s, after going to KFC, and my husband was complaining about the line and how we shouldn’t have bothered to go get my son a Happy Meal. I just smiled because that is something parents do. We go to McDonald’s when we know the line is going to be long, and the service crappy, just to make our kids happy.

in line, qued up, in line at McDonalds, McD's, ordering


Quote about having children.

Making the decision to have a child – it’s momentous.

It is to decide forever to have your heart go walking outside your body.

I hope all of you mothers have a good Mother’s Day on Sunday!

My son actually took this photo, two years ago.

shake, open, pour
real milk put through the wringer
“whole milk” not “wholesome”
he would drink a real cow dry
guess store bought is working out

Does your child drink milk constantly?
