Hope all you Mommas out there had an awesome Mother's Day! Ours was pretty standard fare... it wasn't awesome, it wasn't a bust. It was fine. It was pretty much like most weekends 'round here except in the midst of soccer practices, double-date dinner plans, Dr Fabulous working almost all Saturday afternoon, family visits, and all the general what-not
I got a very cute slew of handmade gifts from the girls and a very appreciated gift card to a spa.
And I got my annual Mother's Day photo. After Pink was born I asked Dr Fabulous to take a picture of me and my girls on Mother's Day each year. They are never anything frame-able but they are my memories and documentation of how they grow.
The early ones are on my old computer that crashed years ago and so there goes my idea of a bloggy trip down memory lane.
Here's this year's photo. CB is pissed. That's a mid-yell "I'm pissed off" face that passes as maybe a happy laugh. It was better than some of the other faces she was making in the 27 other pictures. You can see her sisters are totally "done" with posing.
It's certainly better than this one
and definitely better than when she's not here at all.
The thing I've learned about Mother's Day AND photos is you can't expect too much from either. You just gotta roll with it and appreciate everything that isn't perfect because that is always what makes the heart smile and the memories unique.
