We took our family pictures recently. The more kids you have, the more schedules you have to coordinate around, the tougher it is. And this year we dodged a major bullet.
Exactly 2 hours after the photo shoot, my youngest son came down with pink eye. That morning I was struggling with clothes that weren’t too matchy-matchy. Arguing with two little boys who would rather ride scooters at the park then pose for pictures. A daughter who fussed over hairstyles. A husband who snapped and growled because his only day off that week was going to be interrupted for a photo session.
But it was all worth it.
This is what we got….
(Thanks, Merrilymarylee, for reminding me to celebrate the little victories.)
Remember when I said I’m not into blogging for the money, just the fame? Well…..
My boys are famous!
Parents.com saw my first-day-back-to-school pic and asked if they could use it on their back-to-school online page.
Yep. That’s them! The cute little devils on the left. You have until Monday to check them out and then I suppose they’ll be replaced by two more handsome little devils. (But never as cute as mine!)
Even if you see this too late, head on over to Parents.com anyway. It is chock full of helpful information to make your school year delicious, easy, organized, joyful, healthy, fashionable, effective, bully proof, homework-hassle-free, safe, nutritious and fun. You name, they have an answer for it!
So check it out.
And yeah. My boys are there. Rockin’ it out like the rock stars they are.
Ok. So I’m not the famous one this time.
I’m a mom.
I’ll just live vicariously through them! 😉
