I kind of think the best snapshots in life are the ones that can't be taken with a camera. Like the one Rachel shared here or the ever so precious descriptions of toddler destruction that Sara generously shares. My life is full of these little snapshots. For example today while I was washing dishes my three year old child approached me with trepidation, looked up and said three words.
"I am honest."
To which I replied, " You are honest?" (I'm so clever and witty aren't I?)
And then his confession:
I peed my pants, but I am honest. Don't put me to bed. I am honest.
I wasn't sure what the proper punishment for pants peeing honesty was so I just made him say 2 Our Fathers and 2 Hail Mary's. Maybe I was a little harsh.
Pink Wings and Tutu. Check. Hawaiian Headband. Check. P.J.'s with Ice Cream Cones on them. Check.
I think that pose means she's ready to sprinkle you with Fairy Dust.
A few weeks ago we got a little snow shower. Bella really wanted to go out and play in the snow but it was late and I told her that she'd have to wait until the next day.
"When you wake up tomorrow there will still be plenty of snow."
Of course when she woke up, this was all the snow we had.
I thought for sure she'd have a fit about how there was no snow and I promised there would be snow when she woke up. So the next morning I prepared myself for the whining while I bundled them up to go out in the "snow" and sent them out into the back yard. And then I heard her exclaim,
"THERE'S SO MUCH SNOW!!!"
