At Church on Sunday, we had an explosive one. Like, the dreaded up-the-back kind. I frantically started going through the diaper bag and then realized there were NO spare outfits. What kind of mom am I? Hon-est-ly. So, I remained calm.
You'd have been so impressed, though. Declan and I were such a good team--no one in our little house Church even had any idea about the horror that was her diaper. Let me tell you how glad I was that she had a onesie underneath her leggings and tunic-style top, because it made a sacrifice for us that day. It's little life was short. But? It served it's purpose. To save us from humiliation. It's home now is at the dump, poor little pink worn-only-once onesie. It wasn't even worth trying to save. Trust me.
I should know that when I get the bright idea to play the Wii with my husband---no matter how good it sounds at the time, it's always a bad idea. Always.
I am a poor sport. And? I'm really not that good despite
all my trash talk my best efforts. My husband, however is really good at all things like that. So, it puts me in a grouchy/goofy/weird/irritable mood, and the mixture of it is, well, interesting.
But, yea. I really should learn my lesson and when the urge strikes up to play (every once in a blue moon), I should just quit while I'm ahead and still sane.
I should know that when I start something new, I can sometimes become slightly obsessive. At least for a little while. Like my new Lightroom obsession? Even though I suck at it (hey, it's still new to me) and professional photographers would probably look at my edits and be like, "Ohmygosh it's SO amateur", I don't even care. Because I'm learning. You have to mess up to get decent someday, right?
So, I may or may not have stayed in my pj's all day yesterday and spent every naptime huddled over my computer, or playing with my camera, or pretending to be a good photographer just because.
Although I'm a teeny, tiny bit proud of myself for finally realizing how to get a decent macro type shot while using my camera in full manual.
[Psss....this first picture is my most favorite Christmas gift ever this year. Declan did good, didn't he?]
And you should know it's unlikely to get away from this place without seeing a few photos of this girl.
