POP TARTS! MOMMY! I WANT POP TARTS!!!!
I knew I shouldn't have agreed to that impulse purchase while buying 80% off Halloween decorations with Joey yesterday.
|Probably not the most productive use of my petty cash fund.|
Me: Joey, it's 5:30 am. Go back to bed. I'll get you Pop Tarts in a little while.
Joey: WHAAAAAAAAAAAA. I want Pop Tarts, Mommy. I WANT POP TARTS!!
Me: Stop it.
Me: Joey, if you keep this up, I'm throwing the Pop Tarts in the garbage.
Joey (muttering as he walked away): I'm throwing you in the garbage, Mommy.
As I stumbled downstairs a little while later, I checked my emails and saw that the professional photographer bus mom wants to borrow my vast collection of vintage Little People for a shoot. I was thrilled!
I haven't had professional pictures of my children taken in years. I stopped doing that when all three of them would glare at the camera and insist that they hated having their pictures taken. But professional shots of my Little People? Now that was something I could get excited about. They always smile. They always cooperate. They stay where you put them. Awesome!
|Jack's comment as I arranged them: "Oh - you're making the Yahoo-Doray singing people at the end of Grinch."|
Now the only problem was Bus-Mom was going to be on my block between 9 am and 10 am and offered to come by then. After I get kids off at 6:55, 8:00, and 8:45 respectively, I use the next two hours before Joey returns to sit around in my JC Penny Extra-Tall Red Schnauzer Pajamas and write, do some laundry, and shower. There was just no way anybody should see me in my Red Schnauzer Pajamas. It was unseemly. I'd get a reputation: Did you see those ridiculous pajamas she wears? Schnauzers?? She hates dogs.
|It took Jack 3 attempts to get a shot with minimal chins.|
And stay tuned to see how cool these turn out! I can't wait!
