Yesterday she played with blocks, gummed her food, gnawed on my finger, and smiled a lot.

Today she grew a tooth. And bit me.

New Studio Flooring!

Several weeks ago, when the kids and I went to visit my parents in Wisconsin for a week, my husband stayed home and worked on our beautiful new studio flooring! Well actually...he worked on the flooring for our entire downstairs. It was quite the project and he did an amazing job! Here's a little peak at the beauty:

Today I....

got up, talked on the phone to a friend, had another phone call while on the phone, didn't answer, took a shower, had the faulty bathroom light turn off while IN the shower, had the faulty bathroom light turn back on, was thankful, dried my hair, shoved cereal in front of my kids, added blueberries, felt like a better mom, realized it was special K cereal, felt like an even better mom, considered how I should be the one eating the special K, realized it was all gone, ate nothing instead, endured much whining, sent my daughter to the mailbox to mail 2 cards, sent my son out to put up the forgotten flag, sent my daughter back out to retrieve cards from neighbor's mailbox, instructed my daughter to put them in our mailbox, endured much whining, got in the van, applied makeup at the light, applied more makeup at the next light, finished applying makeup in the drive-thru, ordered fries and a Coke, met some friends at the park, forgot to eat my fries until they were cold, baked in the sun, drank my Coke, felt bad about drinking Coke around my super-healthy friend, applied sunscreen to 1/2 my kids, applied sunscreen to 1/2 myself, burned my face a little, gave some of my Coke to my kids, wished I hadn't, wished I had another Coke, fed my kids a snack in the car, fed them more snacks, made it home, got everyone inside, endured much whining, got everyone into their respective 'rest time' location, browsed Facebook, browsed CafeMom, made a business call, considered working on more business stuff, browsed CafeMom again, wrote a blog post, published it, couldn't believe kids as cute as this could cause trouble....


What have you done today?

Love/Hate Relationship

The other day I found myself standing in line at a U-Scan. There were 4 open U-Scans and about 2 or 3 people waiting in line in front of me. As I proceeded in line, I began to consider how much technology has changed the American way of life even in my own lifetime. We used to stand in a line of customers to get to a person, not a machine. We used to hand over our cash instead of swipe our credit cards. And speaking of cash, have you ever noticed how you begin to hate people that carry it these days? Don't even try to deny it. You know you do. I mean, it's so....slow. And if there is loose change involved? Forget it. You might as well have just stayed home.

It's so strange to realize that my children will never know any differently. While I was born into a world full of technology, my children were born into a world RUN by technology. Engulfed in it. Unable to carry on without it. Yet we love it, most of the time. I find it to be a very unique conundrum.

And on a totally unrelated topic, check out this adorable poodle who stopped by for a visit while I was out shooting on Saturday. So. Stinkin'. Cute. If only I wasn't allergic.....
