There’s proof in the pudding (or pictures)


Apparently, there is some perception (maybe because I only post the smiling, happy pictures) that my girls are always happy, smiling and love each other.


Every time I read a comment like that, I’m pretty sure I snort. It’s genetic. Thanks mom.

I’m here to dispel those vicious rumors. It isn’t always peaches around here.
It’s been proven that blogs won’t be around when my kids are old enough to look at them, right? Because, I’m pretty sure this might demote me from best mom status.

Wait no longer.

I give you #2 throwing a fit and #1 demanding cuddle time. Simultaneously, nonetheless.

#2 having a hoo-hum moment. She’s not really sure what to do. Could it be the giant flower headband and the tutu? It’s possible.
#1’s best impression of the stink eye. That is not genetic. She does that one all on her own.
And, of course, they aren’t always the nicest to each other. I’m pretty sure #1 was holding #2 when I went for the camera. I’m guessing #2 pulled #1’s hair, so she got shoved off her lap.
Ahh…that’s a little better. #1 is trying to make #2 feel better. Poor thing. She was so unhappy with me.
In all seriousness, they really are very happy girls. They love each other to pieces and are so sweet to one another. #1 makes #2 laugh and shares her snacks and #2 gives #1 some serious attention and love.
Of course, they do have the best.smiles.ever! I’m never biased.
And, I had to go through 5 months worth of pictures to find these gems.

  11. Kids are so cute! One moment they're fighting and the next time you'll see them flying kisses to each other. I think it's normal for kids to fight. They'll eventually learn to compromise.

  12. Commenting on the fine print…at the movies tonight (OUR mother, your kiddos grandMOTHER snorted AND sang OUT LOUD to a song) but she sure gave us some great genes! The girls…you should have put up the pic of my attempt to get a pic with both of them this summer. They went in complete opposite directions….reminds me of an older sister I have!

  13. The "ho hum" picture of N is awesome! Still waiting for that giant bee to land on her flower headband.
