You Know You’re a Mom When-sDaze

 

You know you’re a mom when…

You miss just being bored and doing nothing (thanks to Katie at Desperate for Coffee for this one!)

You drive in the car alone for 15 minutes humming along with the radio before you realize that it’s Barney the dinosaur you’re listening to (yes, I just did this one on Thursday)!

You *fumble* around in the dark looking for a spit out pacifier, praying to God that you will find it before having to turn on a light!

You go to a 4th of July party and end up sitting on the living room carpet watching babies play while everybody else is outside enjoying the sunshine and the pool

At said party, you end up taking turns with other moms watching each other’s kids so everybody can scarf down a plate of food or use the bathroom without toting the kids in with them

Your 3 year old watches about 2-1/2 minutes of fireworks before announcing that he’s ready to go inside to drink juice

Your 4th of July evening ends with you being home in bed by 10 pm…just 45 minutes or so after the fireworks show has ended

You’re glad that you are a mom instead of in your twenties again dealing with a horrible hangover the next day!

Everybody knows how much I love You Know You’re a Mom When-sDaze…did you know I also participate in Wordless/Wordful Wednesday? Check it out here!

I want to thank everybody that read my post about my struggles with depression that I posted on Monday. I can’t begin to describe how important your support is to me! Thank you for not only listening to me, but for also sharing your stories with me. Your honesty, support, and trust leaves me speechless. So thank you.

And so it goes…

  1. I love your post because, it is so true. Our 4th party was me trying to scarf down food while everyone else was hanging out. We drove to the beach, searched for a parking spot, scouted out a spot, let the kids play while we waited and waited for the dark, then both my boys fell asleep on me before the fireworks even began. LOL I feel your pain!
  2. Allyson & Jere says:
    Loved the pacifier one. That is me ALL the time. "please, oh please, oh PLEASE let me find it."
  3. Nina @ Momma Go Round says:
    Awesome...I'm not the only one praying to the binkie gods multiple times a day. I swear LJ might die without his!

    Hope you are having a better day and feeling better :)

    Gotcha on the baby/mommy blog votes!
  4. Kristin @ Peace, Love and Muesli says:
    We didn't even make it to our Canada Day fireworks. Sparklers and bed for 8pm.
  5. Pumpkin and Piglet says:
    I've often found myself singing nursery rhymes out loud in public without Piglet. The problem is I don't usually realise I am doing it until people start giving me funny looks :)
  6. Hangovers seem like just the ultimate waste of time to me now.
  7. The Mommy says:
    How hilarious! I agree with all if them, especially the first and second one. I'm glad I don't have to deal with the third one now!
  8. Funky Mama Bird says:
    "You're glad that you are a mom instead of in your twenties again dealing with a horrible hangover the next day!"

    HA! So true.
  9. Melissa (Confessions of a Dr. Mom) says:
    These are great! Especially the one about playing with the kids inside and trying to scarf down a plate of food. I used to get so annoyed with my hubby when he'd be all relaxing and enjoying the party...uh...hello...I'm over here..a little help please?
  10. Apron Senorita says:
    Hi, so nice to meet you. I'm blog hopping from Taming Insanity. Your blog is awesome and I'm a new follower.

    Yoli :)
  11. Mary Catherine says:
    This post made me smile.... 3 under three :) That is awesome.... I am stopping for SITS :) Have a fantastic day...
  12. elizabeth @ twelvecrafts says:
    Ahhhh . . . I'm identifying, I'm sympathizing and I'm laughing.
  13. You nailed it with the pacifier!! I'm laughing at that. So true!!

    And drinking juice is very important...don't ya know!! Gotta stay hydrated!
  14. We used to keep SO MANY pacifiers in and around my son's crib, yet the fumbling in the dark happened anyway. I became like a magnet for those things and could always find one!

    I remember those "parties" hanging out with so many little ones, taking bathroom turns and scarfing down plates of food! Someday it will seem like a distant memory...but it sure defines a big chunk of your life!
  15. Katherine says:
    Haha! I love the 4th of July ones...that was so me on Sunday only, I was the one mom stuck watching everyone elses kids...how the heck did that happen!?

    Great post!

    Also? I'm your newest follower!
  16. Sharlene T. says:
    It's so nice to hear your generation share the joys of young motherhood... at least you didn't tell another grown-up that you had to go pottie in the middle of a very upscale dinner party... these are such wonderful days... enjoy every second... and come visit when you can...

    Twitter: SolarChief
  17. This is a day in my life!!
  18. Claudia says:
    Sounds very familiar - my husband still cares for the babies and toddlers at a party - because our kids are teenagers now - and he misses to watch children's movies with them... ;=)
  19. cooperl788 says:
    I've been halfway to a destination in the car without my baby before realizing I was still listening to her music and singing along. Love this post! I voted for you on Top Mommy Blogs!
  20. Oh the dreaded pacifier fumble! UGH! This was the first 4th since my youngest where I was not inside the whole time...although I was the only parent checking on the kids periodically.
  21. What about when you rewrite popular songs to make them about your kid? Just me? Oh no!

    PS. Voted for you, BTW
  22. Spoken like only a mom can... And I wouldn't trade any of it.
  23. MommaKiss says:
    I know I'm a mom today because my pants were a little bit tight and it's the kids who wrecked my body - so yay - totally know I'm a mom :p
  24. Karen Mortensen says:
    At least you went out on the 4th. We stayed home and we don't have kids here. Maybe we can just change it to you know you are old if.
  25. blueviolet says:
    It all sounds pretty terrific, except for the Barney part! ;)
  26. :) These are great! I love the 4th ones... man did that holiday ever change when I had kids!
  27. Every so often, my husband and I will stop and ask each other, "what did we DO with all that time we used to have?" I don't have the answer, but I think it was a whole lotta nothing! I would love to have those days back, even with the boredom.
  28. Chelsey - The Paper Mama says:
    Ha! These always make me laugh... because it sounds like me! :)

    I'm inspired by you talking about your post par-tum. I'm still not ready to discuss it on my blog... but, maybe a little closer. :)
  29. Aging Mommy says:
    I used to so hate listening to the Wiggles over and over and the horrible turkey song and yet when I got in the car on my own I would realize just like you after an entire trip that I had listened when I did not need to! But we have finally moved on, Black Eye Peas and Gwen Stefani are what we now listen to :-) I used to think my life was SO busy and SO hard but it was a walk in the park compared to life now.
  30. Omg this is so true... My baby is almost 9 now :( hopefully we will have another one soon. I missed fumbling around for the sucky. Thanks for stopping by my blog :)
  31. I love your "You know you're a Mom" isms . . . the are so perfect and true (love the driving and singing along w/Barney when you are alone - so familiar to me!) Thinking of you!
  32. I can relate to pretty much all of these! I always end up watching the kids at family gatherings. I think, because I work with kids, people think I just don't mind watching kids all the time. Not so!
  33. Maureen says:
    Oooh these are great list, lady! Love the fireworks one hahaha. Mine would sit by the balcony all night watching them if we let him to.
  34. Arizona Mamma says:
    Kiddy music in the car. Happens to me all the time. Only, I am always just about to my destination before I realize it's been on the whole time. Pitty. For those precious few times alone in the car to be spent listening to hickory dickory dock.
  35. Always catch myself listening to the kids' music after I've dropped them off. I'm all, "argh! wasting precious time listening to THIS??"

You Know You’re a Mom When-sDaze

You know you’re a mom when…

  •  While trying to sneak out of your just-fell-asleep kid’s room, you are betrayed by a popping knee or ankle (thanks for this one, Arizona Mamma!). This is also a sign you might be getting old!

  • You wonder how in the name of all that’s pure and holy how your kid can watch the same episode of Max and Ruby over and over again….

  • You don’t own one article of clothing that is not stained

  • You get mad for any reason, good or not, that nap time is cut short

  • The kids have a ton of  toys, but all they want to play with is the stuff they can’t play with…like your whisk that now doesn’t whisk anymore

  • You have a hard time holding an adult conversation without the words poop, kids, crying

  • You can’t wait to get rid of the kids for the day/night, and then miss them when they’re gone

  • You are amazed by some of the things your toddler says, especially because it sounds just like you (Example: Tater says “Actually…”, “Calm down”, and “I’m not going to tell you again”)

  • You let the kids stay in pajamas all day since you aren’t going anywhere

  • You hide food so that you don’t have to share it, and wait until the kids go to be to eat it

Did you miss last week’s You Know You’re a Mom When-s Daze? If so, you can check out my post here…it was pretty darn funny – Tater colored our white dog green!


And so it goes..

  1. Allyson & Jere says:
    Especially agreeing on the super irritation when nap time is cut short. That is just NEVER right. NEVER

    And so glad to know I'm not the only one who totally hides food from the kids, or doesn't allow THEM to eat it, but I can.

    Speaking of, how did your first sugar free day go? Do tell.
  2. Silly Mommy says:
    Stopping by from SITs!

    That list was hilarious! Even as I read it out loud to my husband he had to laugh because whether you're mom or dad, it's usually the same. Haha!
  3. Arizona Mamma says:
    You are ON it! Holy cow. The link will be up this time, promise! ;)

    Oh, and I always get angry at naptimes cut short. In fact, a census worker came to the door today and knocked so loudly, I thought for sure she'd wake Colton. She didn't...but I was still miffed.
  4. I hear you on desperately waiting for bed and then promptly missing him.
  5. Kristin Glasbergen says:
    We are past the nap stage but I totally lose my cool when bedtime is delayed. I punch out at bedtime and I am NOT interested in overtime hours. Ever.
  6. Maureen says:
    I hear you on the toys and clothing without any stain! Oh and I hide my chocolate bars pretty good hahahaha
  7. The Mommyologist says:
    All of those are so true! I always laugh at the things that my son repeats that come out of my mouth. My favorite is, "Mommy! I don't like your attitude!!"
  8. Aging Mommy says:
    My drawer full of kitchen implements has been raided so many times half the things in it are now missing or broken. But it's the same with keys, phones and everything else, Mommy and Daddy's versions are always better! Fun post!
  9. Sheri Carpetenter says:
    I love this list. These are all so true lol. I love your blog I will definately be back around. Stopping by from lady bloggers. Have a great day.
  10. Funky Mama Bird says:
    Things get UGLY around here when nap time is cut short. Very, very ugly.
  11. I LOVE the 'actually' thing, too. and i want to know who is lucky enough to have the voice-over gig as max. that dude says 1 word for an entire episode. that has to be the easiest job out there.
  12. SO true and funny! lol! It's so funny when they repeat what we say, always cracks me up...and mine are older LOL!
    thanks for stopping by my place!
  13. You've pretty much summed up my life in this post! Too funny, and so very true! Holy Moly...what have we gotten ourselves into:)
  14. LOL - I just hid my Nilla Wafers this morning from my son! Don't tell him! ;-)
  15. Courtney says:
    Always entertaining. :) Keegan has started bossing Presley using phrases that sound just like me. And I thought I was the only mom that hid food from her kids.
  16. Sippy Cup Mom says:
    Yup! Love these!

    What really bothers me is I want to know where Max and Ruby's parents are. I have even googled and came up with no info.
  17. NanaDiana says:
    Reading your blog is like re-living young motherhood all over again! And, now I get to enjoy it a second time around with my grandkids. One time my friend and I (2 young mothers then), went out for coffee -ALL BY OURSELVES. She finished her cup and held its bowl out towards me and said, "All done". She was NOT trying to be funny. It was just something she said to her kids every day of life...and was a habit! We looked at each other and started laughing hysterically-I'm sure people thought we were crazy----we were----
  18. Bethany @ Organic Enchilada says:
    I hate Max and Ruby! I want to slap Ruby and find out where the hell their mother is! Alas, my almost three year old worships them.

    I hide food, too. Nice!
  19. Megan (Best of Fates) says:
    Not to be critical, but...

    (don't you just love when people start out like that?)

    If your knew is popping, you might want to seek physician's care.
  20. Truer words were never written.
  21. Ok, maybe it was YOUR kid that took off with my whisk, cuz heaven knows 'Nobody' did it at my house! LOL Great list today!
  22. I'm holding on with both hands to my last summer of naps with my 5 year old. The kid needs em or we are both seriously cranky.
  23. I hear you on the whole toy deal...i should have just bought will a cheese grater!

    ruby totally annoys me...is that mean to say??
  24. it's not just the kids who stay in their pajamas if we're not going anywhere, lol.
  25. oh my gosh! so funny! I think almost all of those happened today! :-)
  26. Pumpkin and Piglet says:
    *Nodding head frantically* This made me giggle, much needed after a long day! Excellent list, I recognise nearly all of them!
  27. What a great list and boy aren't they all true! It is amazing how precious sleep time is when you have so many little ones. More than once, a hip or knee pop has woken up a sleeping baby. It makes me crazy. And yes, regardless of the reason, short nap time ALWAYS makes me sad.
  28. Mama (Heidi) says:
    Hello my name is Heidi and I too hide food from my children.

    Great list!

    I agree with the masses regarding Max and Ruby and refuse to let the show be on if I am home. Is that mean? Nah, I'm just weilding my powers.
  29. I'm still hiding food from my kids. The bad part is when I forget where I hid it!
  30. My older daughter? Took a long time to decide to talk, and her favorite shows? Featured characters who also did not talk . . . like Ruby and Max, and Maisy the Mouse, and Harold and the Purple Crayon. And Blue from Blue's Clues, who did not talk back then.

    So I watched and loved countless episodes of Max and Ruby.

    But the rest of your list? Agreed.
  31. Big Mama Cass says:
    OMG I am not the only one who hides the food till the kids are in bed!??!?! Whoa! YAY!!

    We can't go 12 hours without Team Umizoomi in this house {shudder}
  32. Natalie, I am a dope and not sure how to respond to my comments on my blog?? I wanted to say thanks for your comment about my Bare Foot pic. I just love that photo as well! I love baby feet and baby butts! lol! My MIL thinks I am nuts (I am guessing of course) because I am constantly snapping photos of my babies feet and booties! =P
  33. Cuz I'm the mama! says:
    These are all so true!! I especially relate to the one about naptime being interupted. I go completely nuts when this happens. So nuts that my hubby things I have officially gone off the deep end. Naps are my lifesaver and if you mess with naps you mess with ME!
  34. trooppetrie says:
    i added this to my list for not me monday. i can no longer sneak down the hallway because i pop and crack too loudly
  35. Paul and Kerry says:
    love it!

    I hide my honey bunches of oats with strawberries because I hate sharing it. mean!
  36. The Paper Mama says:
    Oh so true! Especially the knee popping! You also know you're a new mommy when all your clothes smell like milk. :)
  37. Oh, I'm so stingey with my food. Seriously, I've been known to inhale a candy bar just so I didn't have to share a bite...those little people can always smell the evidence on your breath, though!! Curses!

    Yay for PJ Day...we have em' all the time!!
  38. HAHAHA I love it! I wrote a few of these once upon a time!
  39. I can so relate to this!

    My freaking HIP popped as I was trying to sneak out of my sleeping little one's room. WTH???
  40. Ms. Understood says:
    LOL @ all the wonderful things I have to look forward to in motherhood. Good thing I got the cracking joints down already.
  41. awesome post!! i can relate to everyone!
  42. Shelley T. says:
    And while watching Max and Ruby for the millionth time you wonder where are their parents???

  43. Everything you said is exactly true!!! They all made me laugh. Especially the one about them playing with everything they aren't supposed to play with and poop stories!!! Seriously...I think thats all we talk about anymore!
  44. One Love Mama says:
    Are you spying on me? LOLOL
  45. How sad but true all those things are! Now, if you'll excuse me, I've got a delicious bag of Tandoori BBQ chips to crack open now that the little monkey's finally asleep!
  46. Ok...so I hid those chocolate ding dongs in the freezer...you kids never knew it...and while you were sleeping or at school I would pull one out and have it with a bowl of ice cream! Ahhh...those little moments...

You Know You’re a Mom When-sDaze

You know you’re a mom when…

  • You have to give the dog an unexpected wash down before breakfast because your monster toddler decided to color her green with a marker

  • You understand why the woman in the commercial says “Calgon, take me away!”

  • You’re monster toddler doesn’t hear you when you tell him “Pick up your toys”, but say any one cuss word under your breath in the next room over, and he’s on it like white on rice 

  • You know how LOUD the sound of carpet is scrunching under foot when you are trying to sneak out of your semi-sleeping kids’ room

  • You find yourself wondering if it’s too early for a glass of wine – at breakfast

  • Anybody catch the season finale of Modern Family? The best show on all thousand channels of TV? Remember when Mitchell is trying to get the pigeon out of the house and destroys the living room and makes an absolute mess? You know you’re a mom when your monster toddler turns to you after watching the scene and tells you “his mom is gonna be really mad”

  • You tell hubby that after a certain time in the evening you’re officially ‘off duty’, and not responsible for taking care of anything or anybody else

  • You get pissed off if the kids aren’t in bed at exactly their designated bed time

  • You never in a million years thought you’d ever ask anybody “Okay, who pooped?”, but now do it on a daily basis

  • And you know you’re a mommy blogger when you bypass doing your daily chores in order to read one more blog/write one more comment/respond to one more email…

Don’t forget to check out my first product review and giveaway!! It’s a good one and you don’t want to miss it!

  2. Love it! Especially the one about the crunchy carpet!! Found you on blog flow! I'm a follower.
  3. Marinka says:
    Love it! My kids are pre-teens now and I still get annoyed when they're not instantly in bed and asleep the moment the clock strikes their bedtime!
  4. loved that Modern Family and love your son's comment :) can't wait to check out all the great blogs you recommend this summer...
  5. i had a calgon take me away moment the other night...it was bliss!

    love the green on your dog...what a crafy monster you have!
  6. The Mommyologist says:
    Love the last one! It is so true. I spend way more time on the computer than I should as a blogger...but I just cannot seem to stop!!
  7. I love Modern Family too! Every episode is so classic.
    By the way, if I had a nickel for every time I've said the word poop in the last nine years, I would probably have enough money to put these kids through school.
  8. Jenn @ South of Sheridan says:
    lol too funny! Thanks for stopping by, I'm a new follower of yours! Off to check out your giveaway :)
  9. The Sharp's says:

  11. LOVE Modern Family!

    What's wrong with a glass of wine for breakfast? ;)
  12. LOL - yep, I can certainly relate to everything on this list!
  13. Megan (Best of Fates) says:
    I love the photo of the colored dog! And I haven't caught the finale of Modern Family yet, but I can't wait, I love that show!
  14. JennyMac says:
    HAHAH.. I cant believe the frequency we even say poop in this house. Our MiniMac is three...we say it ALLLLLL the time.
  15. These are all great. Particularly about bedtime and poop. I feel your pain. Oh, and I'm a HUGE modern family fan. Haven't watch the finale yet, so had to skim thru that.
  16. Ms. Understood says:
    I've seen one episode of Modern Family (the one where Al Bundy - I still call him that - was coaching the kids basketball team). Lol @ who pooped. And that poor puppy. Your life sounds exhausting but really fulfilling and exciting.
  17. Ut oh, looks lie I'm a mom, lol.
  18. You know your a mom when you go to reply on someone's blog an stuff is misspelled cause there's a babe sitting on your lap reaching for the keyboard.
  19. Hello! I'm Kate. says:
    I think last night was my "You know you're mom when daze"--you're dead dog tired & it's only 7 pm! Or this morning, when I thought it was noon & it was only 9 am! lol
  20. Your poor dog. Apparently he should be green not white haha. I found you from over at The Life of A Sippy Cup Mom. I'm a new follower!
  21. Mommy's Sippy Cup says:
    Oh, Lord. I can relate to too many of these! And I am so upset that I missed Modern Family! I love that show! And I just told myself the same thing. 5 more minutes and I have to get off the computer. Sad :)
  22. Allyson & Jere says:
    A list of PERFECTION! Seriously, I understand and agree with them all. Well, minus the colored on dog, 'cause ain't no dogs allowed in my house. And the wine thing, 'cause I don't drink. But, other than that.
  23. Heather says:
    AMEN!!!!! Also I never thought I would hold up a baby's bum to my husband for the sniff check! ;)
  24. Mama (Heidi) says:
    We love Modern Family. My son said after the pigeon incident, "Mama, look at that huge, huge mess. Ewww!"

    And Helllooo, yeah for bed-time!!
  25. One Love Mama says:
    I'm guilty of declaring myself "Off duty", doesn't always work though!!
  26. I love Modern Family! My family teases all the time that my husband and I are just like Cameron and Mitchell. Guess which one I am.
  27. The poor dog! did it come out of the fur easily?

    I always say, "it's 5 oclock somewhere..."
  28. WhisperingWriter says:
    Modern Family is hilarious! I cracked up when the pigeon was in the house. I'd have been freaking out too.
  29. Taryn L. McCracken says:
    Ha ha ha This made my day! Thank you.

    I'm a new follower btw. I found you on blogfrog. Feel free to stop by my blog too!

    http://www.pictureitcreations.blogspot.com
  30. OMG! I totally love you! So glad you found me today via my son's potty mouth! XO

    I can relate to ALL of the above..well except for the 3 under 3 thing...you're like a God to me!
  31. Ok, the one about the dog is hilarious. Toddlers are so helpful. I also totally know what you mean about how loud the carpet is. I know where all of the squeeks in the floor are and I try to avoid them at all cost whenever the babies are sleeping!
  32. Love it!!! I totally LOVE Modern Family and think thats hilarious that your little said that!
    It's amazing how much poop can take over your life once you have little ones!!!
  33. Funky Mama Bird says:
    I never have to ask *who* pooped, because there can be only one guilty party, but I frequently find myself asking, "Did you just poop?" as he scoots by me with visible stink lines following.
  34. Mama Bird says:
    I found you via Theta Mom. Great blog, following and look forward to reading more of you.
  35. Christy says:
    I get soooo pissed when the kids aren't in bed by 8pm. It is usually my stupid husband's fault when the kids go to bed late, thus making me mad at my husband and the kids. JUST GO TO THE BED EVERYONE!
  36. I think I've done all of those things!
  37. Everyone loves a glass of wine at breakfast.

    And yes, my monster has impeccable hearing to the point where I whisper something bad, he knows.
  38. Organic Motherhood with Cool Whip says:
    Yes, yes, yes, and yes!!! To all of them. Except the green markered dog. But if I had a dog, I'm pretty sure I would have one that had been decorated in marker. And I am so with you on the sound of the carpet scrunching. You are so hilarious!!!
  39. ha!! this meme is GREAT. I've SO had many of those things happen. Glad I'm not the only mom whose son colors on unexpected things. I don't remember him ever drawing on our dog, but that's probably because she's black :)
    Yes, I have definitely thought that happy hour should start at about 8am too :)
  40. Arizona Mamma says:
    The carpet crunching one...totally relate. My favorite is when I am creeping out of the room, and my body betrays me with an ankle pop or knee crack.
  41. ... poor dog! :) Oh and about the wine, I used to drink about 5 times per year, now I think about wine and corona's daily!
  42. What a lovely shade of green!! How the heck did I miss this post?? Hilarious.
  43. WTH am I Doing? says:
    LoL - I love this. So true...and inspiring...I've got some brain cells firing now. :)

    I am resisting the urge (for the moment) to make myself a mimosa for breakfast...but only barely. And Poop is a huge part of our personal culture. More than I ever thought it would be.
  44. Emily Ann says:
    On the poop thing... My daughter pooped in my closet once... no diaper... we were potty training... ugh, and just out of the bath. She comes up to me with a flash light and says mama I have to show you something, points the flash light at the end of my closet... ugh.. she did it more than once..

    I am enjoying your blog friend!!!

You Know You’re A Mom When-sDaze

You know you’re a mom when….
you let your babies cry so that you can go get the camera to capture the moment!
Ms. M complaining because I don’t shovel it in fast enough
Ms. L upset because her hand with the cookie in it couldn’t find her mouth

And so it goes…

    I have a son that is 27 months older than fraternal twin girls. Nice to meet you Mama.
  2. i'm no miss says:
    I loved what you said about letting the baby cry to capture the moment. Haha! I am a picture crazy mommy too! The only thing I didn't get to capture is my toddler farting..(Gross, I know)

    FYI-Just noticing Heide above...I think she's great!

    Natalie- Isn't it funny that we let our litte ones suffer (not that they're really suffering) so we can capture it? Cracks me up.

    Thanks for joining!
  5. Totally know where you are coming from! I'm so guilty of this! Also, GG can't eat fast enough either. Now that she's started feeding herself, it's gotten a lot better and she has finally learned to be patient and slow down while eating. Too funny!
  6. I do this too - I just don't share the photos. It's like my own secret stash.

  11. One Love Mama says:
    LOL so sad, but so funny! I'm the same way, "Hols on Babe, I gotta capture this and then I'll console you."
  12. Dr. Heckle says:
    Mine doesn't like it when I mock his whining and screaming... I, however, do find the humor in it!
  13. Hilarious...I have a hard enough time feeding one baby. You have my deepest respect!
  14. So, new follower here from blogfrog.

    Not sure I should say this because I'm sure those tears equated to a nice sized headache, but-those pictures made my day.
  15. OH THATS SO CUTE. SHES SO PRETTY. BTW FOUND YOU ON BLOGFROG :D
  16. Fun On a Dime Lady says:
    Too funny! So true. I seem to be able to catch the a good cry with the camera easier than a smile! =)

    Stopping by from SITS!
