We took a bunch of photos last Saturday. I thought maybe we'd be able to get one to use for our Christmas cards.
There wasn't one single photo where everyone is looking at the camera smiling.
But this photo here. Well, it is probably the one I should send. It captures us as we really are. Fuzz head Frankie is happy, doing just what he is supposed to be doing for all his eight months of life. Birdie is throwing a temper tantrum. The boy is off in Never Neverland. I have plastered on a fake smile, but the strain shows through my eyes and the grit of my teeth. And the Sugar Daddy. Well, he's rolling with the punches, a little less bothered by the chaos. Trying to keep us all happy.
We're a rag tag bunch of hooligans.
This is us as we are today. Tomorrow might bring big changes. I like to say: you never know what's around the corner. My children could turn into perfect angels.
It could happen.
Please say it could happen.
