Happy Mother’s Day, internet! I planted my traditional flower pots and vegetables. The flowers will traditionally look beautiful on the front steps and the vegetables will traditionally die before I ever see a single tomato or eggplant. But I wouldn’t want to stop planting them. It’s tradition.
Super sunny soccer game
I told them not to try chasing it.
So happy to be OUTSIDE
Bonus Sunday picture: Caroline goes “LOOK, ITS BABY LINC!”
Playing Star Wars…
Watching Star Wars…
Wearing Star Wars. May the Fourth!
Still recovering from doing ALL THE THINGS over the weekend
We are becoming experts at this back wrapping thing
This is the face he makes when he sees Caroline get off the bus
These are my ridiculous new pants. I love them. I wore them to the dentist.
Sweaty nap head
Taking a walk down by the river
Doesn’t everyone eat their cheerios in the doorway?
The filthiest child
She wasn’t happy about the bib, but that was already her third outfit of the day
The family that slides together, ends up in a big pile of crying children together.
You can’t tell, but he’s crying. Because some of his Cheerios fell on the floor. Because he threw them there.
Somehow, she did not fall in.
That is not the face of a healthy child. Poor baby had fifths disease (we think) but once you get the rash you’re not contagious anymore.
I really wanted to get a picture of myself with the kids for Mother’s Day, but that didn’t happen. There were too many meltdowns, too many dirty faces, too many things to do, too many kids to wrangle. But while we were making s’mores for dinner both Evan and Caroline said THEY were having the best day ever, so at least the kids enjoyed their day. If that’s not basically what motherhood breaks down to then I don’t know what it.
