The eyes tell all. I recently took some pictures at a local high school football game. This pictures was one that turned out. Funny thing is I wasn’t looking for this “shot”. In post edit I saw it, did a little crop and turned it into a black and white to emphasize the eyes. Funny how once in a while a shot turns up when you were least expecting it.
KB: What’s for lunch?
KB: Yay! Samples!
And another in the long line of “borrowed” Facebook posts from my adult daughter.
Just in case anyone is a new Facebook friend of mine and still curious what it’s like to have children, let me lay out my day for ya:
-I was awoken at 7am by blood curdling screams…for a banana.
-after cuddling my son for 30 minutes, I realized poop had leaked from his diaper, onto my leg.
-I showered at 1:30pm. I think? Did I shower? Or was that a dream? It was an embarrassingly long time after the poop incident, if I did.
-my four year old spent just over 15 minutes sitting in the middle of the floor, silent, doing nothing, moving nary an inch, locked in a stare off with me until she decided to tell me why I found her lunch in an empty box by the garbage.
-there is lipstick on the toilet seat. I’m trying not to think about this one too hard.
-therea toothpaste on my phone, but I don’t remember brushing my teeth.
-realized that “Throw this away” evidently translates to “Toss this down the laundry shoot” to my 20 month old. This discovery came today when I happened upon a collection of dirty diapers amidst the laundry I was sorting.
-I’m still drinking my cold coffee at 8pm.
They haven’t been put to bed yet, so I’m sure there’s still time for more shenanigans, but by then I will be deep into a Blue Moon and too tired to reminisce.
Yet another funny interaction between my daughter and granddaughter.
Me: *to Joey* I’m going to the doctor now. Anything you need while I’m out?
KB: Yeah, I’ll take a Burger King kid’s meal, with the toy.
Me: Ok, while I’m gone, ask Daddy to explain to you Need vs Want.
Recently Barbara Bush passed away. She lived her live with one seemingly important goal, her family. No matter what she did, or was involved in, she always put family first.
Since her passing I have heard, or read, this Barbara Bush quote many times. It never gets old, and the more I read or hear it, the more it sticks with me.
If everyone lived their lives based on this quote, we would all get along much better and life would be good. I hope you enjoy.
“At the end of your life, you will never regret not having passed one more test, not winning one more verdict or not closing one more deal. You will regret time not spent with a husband, a friend, a child, or a parent.” – Barbara Bush
