This Halloween is proving to be scary for this little momma.  I'm sick.  Ben is sick.  Cameron is sick.  SCARY!!!!  But, in keeping with the Halloween spirit, I photographed Jessie, the yodeling cowgirl, complete with lots of farm-fresh freckles.  And she did look mighty purdy.  Next up, gonna teach her "don't squat with your spurs on."  

Love those {faux} freckles.  She loves them, too.  As in bathtime will be tramautic tonight.

Looking to see if it's dark outside . . .  She's ready to hit the streets.

WHAT?  If I'm sick I can't go trick-or-treating?  HOW WILL I GET CANDY????

Wish me luck.  My little cowgirl holds a mean grudge.  I told her she could dress up and hand out candy to the neighbors {from the confines of the front door}.  That went over like a lead balloon.

Mom Duties

It's been a month since I blogged. 

I can't keep up.

I'm the girl who's shaving her legs in the shower, dreaming up smart and catchy blog titles, while my daughter stalks me outside the shower door. 

I'm the girl who night after night falls asleep, once again, without getting it all done. 

I'm the girl who wastes precious time on Pinterest, because it's mindless and fun. 

I'm the girl who volunteered to be Room Mom.  And is completely overwhelmed, but is loving every minute of it. 

Same girl juggles wife, mother, cook, housekeeper, chauffeur, laundress, gardener, book-keeper, hair-dresser.  These things are all do-able.  Some simultaneously.  But add in fingernail-trimmer, bed-maker, blankie-finder, kid-flosser, Barbie-dresser, book-reader, blogger and grocery-store shopper and things start to get fuzzy. 

I'm the girl who forgot to pack Ben's snack two days in a row {I paid dearly}. 

I'm the girl who hears her husband pull into the garage and panics over what to make for dinner. 

I'm the girl who forgets important dates, arrives late to pre-school, hasn't balanced the check book since June, and forgets to water her cherished flowers. 

I'm the girl who wants to blog, but is living life to the fullest.  I would promise to do better, but I would fail. 

And it's almost dinnertime, and I have no idea what we're having for dinner, so I've gotta run!
