Self Portrait Tuesday #3: "All of Me"

DSC05092
I took this picture this morning. Jack was chasing Stella around pulling her hair, Stella is screaming and Jack is not listening to me telling him to stop. I'm frustrated and tired because I've been sick the last 3 days. After I took this picture Jack and Stella both started crying, Stella I'm not sure why, Jack because he bit his nail so short it ripped on the side. Consoling 2 screaming kids at the same time is hard. Elmo helped though, I popped in the tape and the screaming stopped, I was able to cuddle with each of them while Elmo sang, thanks Elmo!!

Oh, gosh...SO REAL!!! Gosh to put my face on my blog first thing in the morning?... I'm a tad jealous that you are able to do that!..because it's so real! ELMO (gotta luv him!) my youngest baby is about 10...not sure the frustration at times goes away it's just 'different' ...wish Elmo would still work ;)

Another great picture. If I'd put a picture that close-up of myself, I could drive many readers away!

I live that life with the kid that won't listen. Just can't take it sometimes. Elmo saves the day (in his stuffed form)everyday. We even have a back-up Elmo just in case.

Boy, makes me glad my girls are out of this stage -- and on to other stages. But yes, Elmo and his world are awesome! Hang in there.

I think that sort of resembles the look I give my coworker across the room...and she's not remotely small and adorable and cute (even when yelling)...ha! I love the realness of this Heather...hope you feel better...
