I Hate It When I Do That.

You know one of the ways I can tell my life's starting to go all wiggity-wacked?

By the way my picture folders look. See any problems here?

Let me help you out: I have pictures of butt shingles. Butt. Shingles. And not a single picture of my kids around there.

Yep-- one hundred pictures or more per month, and oft times I've got a scant few of what matters most with 98% projects.

I hate it when I do that.

I hate it when I lose my priorities. Projects are fun. I live for them. I'm a boring kind a gal-- I have few hobbies.

But there's gotta be a happy medium, here, am I right?

I'm not saying my kids are neglected. 'Cause they're totally not. I'm just sayin' that I think a glimpse into what I'm photographing might just be a little

"hint hint."

"Nudge nudge."

"Wink wink."

Except for the "wink wink". 'Cause that's kind of creepy.

I'm saying that I'm not going to stop building crap. I'm saying that I have plans to start 4 or 5 new craps just this week. And that's okay.

And that's a lot of craps.

I'm just saying that I have to refocus. Regroup. Reorganize my priorities. Put some littles back at the top of my list.

'Cause I don't want to miss out on a thing.

Like, you know, tucking your shirt into your undies.

And all the other poo-flinging, crazy brouhaha around here.

'S all I'm saying.

I love all the pictures of your kiddos, they seem like they really keep you on your toes! And I love that quote! I put it on a picture frame that holds a picture of my boyfriend, my niece and I at her wedding.

And most of my pictures are of projects also, so don't feel so bad

Aww you're such a good momma, all these moments you capture with your camera! It's kinda pathetic when you're going through your pics and they're mostly of projects isn't it?? That's my life too. They're awfully cute, those munchkins of yours!!! I love that you love all these moments that make up their childhood.

Hello. I found your article from a linked pic on pinterest. You sure have a cute and quirky writing style. It was fun to read. I was wondering if you could share with me how the floor is holding up and if you think it would work in a bathroom. Thanks,

OMG, first off I adore your blog style. I mean, like I love it. I swear, when I type in IM I always throw people off because I use lil teeny sentences in rapid fire and they're unable to keep up. Reading your blog is exactly the way I think, so thank you!
Secondly, your kiddos are ADORABLE! The shirt tucked into the underwear is priceless.
And finally, Where did you get those green and purple stacking blocks in the photo???!!! I remember those from kindergarten, having absolutely loved them and want them so badly for my daughter, but can't seem to find them anywhere at all. Please enlighten me as to where they were purchased!
Thank you again for your fabulous blog, and Happy New Year!
