Lilypie Second Birthday tickers

Monday, April 20, 2009


MckMama is still on Not Me Monday hiatus due to impending surgery on her son's heart. But in the spirit of laughter being healing, a lot of us who play along are continuing on.

And now for all of those things I would never do because I am a perfect mother must shamelessly confess to doing.

This week I did NOT squeeze Cate's large cranium into a hat because it matched her outfit for church. I would never put my child through that kind of torture just for a picture. Yes, we did take it off after about 5 minutes and no, there were NOT already imprints on her forehead where the hat squeezed too tightly.
I did NOT let Cate crawl around on the floor of a store.
And I did NOT model in a fashion show as part of a fundraiser for that show.
That is NOT one of my male cycle coaches in the picture above on the left modeling women's clothing. I would never hang out with someone like that. And I did NOT so love the brown dress I'm modeling (cyclist sunburn and all), that I did NOT buy it that very evening. I would never be so impulsive.

And I did NOT attempt to capture the way the sun was setting to the right of our house, but the storm clouds to the left made for eerie sunlight/shadow play. My picture does NOT do justice to the incredible beauty I witnessed tonight (being serious now). I did NOT wish for a small moment to be a professional photographer so I would better know how to capture moments like this.
Feel free to play along and shamelessly admit with me in the comments section or on your own blog. :-)

PS...Oh yeah, Cate did NOT take several steps yesterday (three in a row is the record) and then REFUSE to walk at all today. Slow and steady I guess.

so cool but so weird to see Emily in pics with Cate! And seriously, you need to sign up for a freakin' photography class. How fun would that be? ...and you've definitely got talent!
