"Your kids always look so happy!"

Well, it's time to debunk that myth! =) Lest any of you should begin to think my children are the most well behaved and well mannered kids alive, I'm here to tell you other wise. They say "A picture is worth a thousand words" and that is true to a point but pictures also leave out quite a bit! You can see the photo but you can't hear what else is going on.

Take last Thanksgiving for instance. Some of you saw this pic.
We were trying to get a decent family photo using our delay on our camera. So after pushing the camera button and scurrying back to my place if you were listening you would have heard a lot of things like, "Elijah stop smashing your brothers face!" "Ow! He scratched me!" "Well, you shouldn't have had your face in his space! "Ethan stop screaming!" and "Smile boys!"
It's also true, i tend to post happy smiling photos of my family on here. And we do have many happy times but that doesn't mean they never fuss, wine or fight with each other. I just don't usually post those. I figure you probably get enough of that in "real life".

Although this one of Ethan did show up on the blog in December 09...

Apparently he's not a fan of Tigger costumes and he let me know it!

Poor kid doesn't like mohawks in the tub either...

We're picking on Ethan today. Here's another.

Then just today, this is the face he gave me when I told him it was nap time...

Happy Friday everyone! Enjoy your weekend!

We all know that no one has all happy smiling children at all times. Yours are happy though, because they have a loving Momma and Dad who spend time with them!
