I woke up this morning thinking to myself... "I'm gonna take a super cute picture of me and my kids together." I had it envisioned in my mind and it was perfect. I showered, we got the kids dressed and I go the backdrop all set up. Then I tried to round up the kids and that's when it all started to fall apart. Hayden wasn't really feeling good and kept trying to crawl away. Kennedy kept on sliding down and doing her model pose and then pulling up her dress and putting her flower bow in her mouth. Then there was McKay... Oh that child of mine! He doesn't ever like to stop moving, running, climbing and wrestling. He doesn't like to stop, let alone to take a stupid picture with dad. So he had his toys and didn't want to let them down. He had this stupid lizard that he refused to let go! I about went crazy when he started bawling when I took it from him. I posted these pictures not because they are award winning but because it is good to know that life is imperfect and that is the way it should be. It isn't always picturesque but that's ok. We can still find joy in life.
