SPC : Me as...

a mother of a two year old
DSC04186
one who has a two-year old must display a sense of humor; patience; comforting tendencies; foresightedness(knowing that although the tantrums may last a lifetime, they will not always be this frequent); the ability to go to bed late and wake up early; have eyes that constantly follow the various and lively goings-on of a toddler; hands that remove harmful objects, replace with entertaining objects, and swat mean greenheads and mosquitoes away from sweet tender skin; have the ability to find lost objects of affection always remembering that little people fit in little places; sing while rocking (whether on tune or not is not applicable); read in soothing, yet animated voice; be able to tolerate annoying voices of the characters on PBS while cleaning house and preparing food; accept that cleaning up after and preparing food for said child is never ending; take moments for oneself before you completely loose it; remember to take in joy fully when joyful moments arise.

Cool! I know I've got several pictures of my daughter crying, but none with me smiling in the foreground. :)

Your picture kind of reminded me of THIS amazing shot that I found over at Flickr.

Good Job!

Absolutely freakin love this post! maybe it's because it is so similar-who am I kidding-the same as my day to day life.

Thanks for the giggles.

XO
