The do-over PSF

The girls did not want to take a picture with mommy on Mother’s Day, but I insisted.

At least the one that isn’t mobile couldn’t get away from me. So, I got my picture with #2. (Man do I look tired.)

And right as the shutter snapped open and closed, she puked right on me. These are the faces of “I just puked on you” and “Gross, I have puke on my hand.”
I guess she didn’t want her picture with me either. Stinker.

And, after the craptacular day that was Mother’s Day, these arrived on our doorstep on Wednesday…

…with a note: “Every day should be Mother’s Day!” -Love, Mr. Serious.

Indeed, it should!

  11. lol You did better than me. Absolutely no pictures of me and the kids on Mother’s Day. No pictures of me, period, on Mother’s Day … AND … I so would not have been smiling after getting puked on. I’d be crying lol.

    Beautiful flowers. I’m completely jealous.

  12. Oh, I love that thought…every day should be Mother’s Day. Beautiful flowers from Mr. Serious. Hopefully it made up for things a little.

  13. Ok…Mr. Serious just became the perfect man after sending those flowers with that note. Wow! He gets a “high five” from me.

  14. Wow, those flowers are gorgeous…and what a thoughtful note for him to put in there. Wonder if I could send this to my hubby as a not so subtle hint?

  15. Isn’t funny how they can throw up and then just be totally normal afterwards? Pretty girl, pretty mama and pretty flowers!

  16. Those roses are gorgeous! I am so glad that you shared them with us.

    I love those shots, and 20 years from now (scary to think) when you look back at them you’ll love them THAT much more!

  22. That’s hilarious. That she puked on your hand. Your expression is hilarious. She’s just ADORABLE! And I love the color of your top. You are beautiful.

    And those roses are gorgeous!

  23. What? Getting puked on isn’t your idea of a PERFECT Mother’s Day???

    Love that you got that tender moment on film. Now THAT’S a PSF!!

    Oh, and Mr. Serious? Totally rocks.

  24. Go figure! Love the capture may not be a good one, but it is a memory of this Mother’s Day.
    Love that Mr. Serious sent you those gorgeous flowers later in the week. He is so right, every day should be Mother’s Day.
    My husband does many things well, but remembering to take pictures of me with the kids never enters his mind. **sigh**
    I guess I am going to have to hire someone or set my camera on a tripod. Otherwise our family “albums” will have an invisible mommy.
