Emily from the anderson crew issued a challenge to take pictures of the mommas AND the kids every day this week.
Today is a better day. No puking. Lots of smiles. And, simultaneous nap times. Thank you, God.
We had more fun taking pictures today. The Bear kept asking for "more cheese" meaning "please take more pictures of me darling mother" in Bear-ese. I figured out the timer on my camera. Which really means, I figured out there was a timer on my camera and then how to use it. The camera was on a blanket on a container of cupcakes on the ottoman. I lost the top of my head, but that's fine by me. The Bear is showing off an old Subway toy he found that flashes. The Monkey is enthralled with The Bear as usual.
Between being a Navy wife and having a two little ones, I've learned nothing ever goes as planned. Sometimes due to other circumstances and sometimes because I'm learning as I go. I still have a plan though.
Submarine officer in the Navy. Excellent at making me laugh, taking care of the dog, defending our country, watching Cubbie games, cleaning the bathrooms (yes, I am for real) and being my soul mate.
The wife & mom. Excellent at changing diapers, shopping, planning things even when I know it's pointless, and holding the family together.
Our big boy who is 4 years old. Excellent at creating works of art, telling knock knock jokes (well telling the same knock knock joke repeatedly), doing puzzles, telling The Monkey what to do and giving hugs.
The littlest member of our family who is 2 year old and full of personality. Excellent at taking things out of drawers, eating his body weight on a daily basis, racing big brother to the toys and snuggling.
Maltese who is not actually a puppy anymore, but gets into mischief like one. Excellent at guarding the house, running down the halls, finding all the food Monkey throws and munching on toilet paper.

I'm a mom to two adorable (I think so at least) little boys. My husband is in the Navy which means our life is typically in flux. We have a crazy puppy who provides us with entertainment and socks with holes. I'm staying at home and learning this mom thing as I go.
