little moments

I was on last week but now -- I'm off!  This past Tuesday until Monday January 4th.  Josh is working (our generally synced-up call begins in 2016!).  So far, it has been really really nice.  I'm sort of pretending to be a SAHM.  My utmost respect to you, SAHMs, because it is hard work.  Honestly, that said, I could probably be very happy as a SAHM (okay, maybe with a little side business of some sort).  I realize I am probably not supposed to say that.  At the same time, I'm also really happy at my job, and I feel like I get a lot of the mom benefits AND have a great/fun/interesting/rewarding job AND get a paycheck.  

So.  All that said, just a few of the little moments from the past few days . . .


COPIED.  I don't think that counts as real writing . . . but it's a start


@ Zoo Miami


Monkey Business


Good omen in the sky


Young At Art (children's art museum)


What museums are like with Cameron . . .

Family calendars!
(this is my job every year)


I actually cooked tonight!
Shrimp from Dinner: A Love Story, Naan, Frozen Veg, Yogurt
Kids ate EVERYTHING and Cameron kept asking for more yogurt which sounded 
like "moohh yo-urt!" and was the cutest thing EVER


From the Zoo


Too grown up


Honestly, things do feel like they are getting better and better.  Do NOT get me wrong - there are still tantrums and trying moments.  I took them both for their flu vaccines this morning (a little late, I know!) and Annabel had a 15 minute breakdown -- not about her SHOT but about the fact that her sticker ripped on way home.  OMG.  But thus far, the older my children seem to get, the more fun and gratifying I am finding parenting, and I have my suspicions that this will continue . . . at least until hormones begin to rage.

Some more introspective (perhaps cliche) year end posts up ahead . .  can't help myself :)

Happy almost-new-year!
