with the arrival of spring i figured warmer weather & better lighting would be in my immediate future (you know, good for picture taking).
sadly- neither of the above are anywhere to be found.
instead we got 3 inches of snow & weather dipping into the 30's.
i really don't approve. but i managed to get some shots of the girls. barely. these are like, grabyourcameraandsimplystartshootingbecauseit'sbeenlikeaweekalready pictures. meh.
but first- some pictures of my weekend indulgence:
none of the above asses belong to me. i am no longer in posession of an ass because my children took it with them (along with my youth & flat stomach) on their departure from my womb.
i wanted to down this. but i'm a breastfeeding mother whos child demands milk at ALL times- so i refrained.
as you can see, the birthday girl was clearly entertained- and not by us. kids today.
my Blackberry is currently covered in drool & smears of grape jelly- courtesy of my toddler who likes to "talk" on the phone.
do you see that plate of heaven? i had to restrain myself from stabbing the other girls with my fondue fork when they reached over to grab some. afterall- it was for all of us. to share. damnit.
i love cheese & chocolate. this is the truth.
the next day we purchased a potty for alex- she been telling me when she's poopy & she likes to "wipe" herself (even when she has pants on still- yeah) so we figured it was time.
the husband put it together & let her have at it. i'm not sure she understands all of the logistics- because this is what i walked in on:
brynn simply watched this go down...
all the while filling her diaper & swing seat with her foul mustard poop. thank you.
which resulted in me having to take the time to wash it & hang it from our shower rod:
i got home yesterday to a rather sporty looking little girl- whith mile high hair:
she loves her fruit in a pouch.
...and watching tv while standing in random spots:
i managed to squeeze in dinner & baths before the stupid Fresh Beat Band came on- and both girls gave me a few minutes to sit. that's all- sit. and watch them.
(i promise i don't leave brynn in that chair all by her lonesome self. what kind of mother would i be?)
so there. that's something at least. perhaps this weekend will afford me time to drag the girls outdoors & annoy them with my picture taking. perhaps.
and now i'm starving- and considering McD's for lunch- but who am i kidding? i'm far to lazy to get up- get in my car- drive to McD's- order- drive back..yeah. no.
plus i'm cheap. so i guess i'll eat pretzels. because i forgot my lunch. damnit.
