10.14.365: Movement

Between the three of them, it’s almost guaranteed that at any moment at least one of them is moving. When I can get them all going in the same direction, I feel like I’ve accomplished something amazing.

4.4.365: Someone that makes you happy

Sure I could post pictures of my kids. They make me happy. But hey! Who wants to see more pictures of my awesome friends who climb mountains with me?

Me too!! I swear I am not the only one sweating here. I’m just the only one sweating through my clothes. Ha!

3.28.365: Fresh Bruises

Softball is a dangerous past time, especially when your pitcher thinks it’s easier to hit you when you’re running to first base than to throw the ball all the way to the first baseman.

Boys are dumb.

3.26.365: Day three: Will it never end?

These children, always with the wanting of dinner. EVERY night.

I like cooking when I feel like cooking. When I don’t? I feel like crying a river of salty tears every time I hear a small voice say, “Mama, what’s for dinner?”

I don’t know, child o’ mine. When are you going to learn I never know until it’s 6pm and I’m standing in front of the fridge?

3.24.365: Opening Day

Let me introduce you to my friends, my soul-sisters, and the sexiest Mamas on the planet. I love these girls.

It took me a long time to find them but it was worth the wait.

In this picture we’re hanging out in the Snack Shack on opening day of Little League. We’re working hard, in between hardly working.

2.29.365: What I’m listening to

Mostly I’ve been listening to the inside of my head while I slept but when I did wake up I played re-runs of Graham Norton.

He makes me laugh and when you’re feeling like you’ve been steamrolled, laughter is good.

2.21.365: A favorite photo of you

I love this photo for many reasons, not the least of which is it is so very 80’s. It doesn’t matter that I think it’s from 1990. I wasn’t ready to give up my Aquanet bangs and purple plastic glasses yet.

I think I can hear the Saved By The Bell theme song in the background.

2.17.365: Adventure Time

There is a tree laying on its side in our front yard. Eventually it’s destined for the fire pit, but for now it makes a wonderful fortress, fairy castle, secret arch that leads to another dimension and occasional TARDIS.

Adventures can happen in the most common of places.

2.11.365: Happy Thing

Living in the country, where gravel is the preferred paving choice, my kids don’t get many chances to roller skate. In fact, yesterday was the second time in her life that she got on the rink.

I love that she has a huge grin here, even though she can’t let go of the wall. And, I love that roller rinks look exactly the same as they did when I was a kid
