A Picture's Worth a Thousand Words . . .

Pin It Now! Look at these pictures and tell me what you see.

A hard boiled Easter egg hunt in our backyard? Elijah in his "fancy" clothes and Jordis in oversized clothes that don't belong to her?

Happy kids with St. Patrick's Day tattoos all over their bodies?





The results of an Easter Bunny who hides cash in eggs?
Now I'll tell you what you didn't see.
1. Lydia pooped her pants once and peed her pants twice (thus she's wearing Jordis' leopard print pants in the later photos). I have not written my curriculum for my 270 Day Potty Training Method because it seems we are aiming for a method closer to 365 days. Or maybe ten years. Only time will tell.
2. Shiloh and I got annoyed with each other.
3. When leaving my parents house my faithful dirty minivan would not start. Dead battery. Jump started it in the pouring rain.
4. When we got home I was on the verge of an MBD. "I need you to take the kids. I need to go take bath." After my bath Shiloh asked me, "Why did you need a bath? Did you get pooped on or something?"
"No, just on the verge of a MBD."

It is said that a picture is worth a thousand words. I think that line is imcomplete:
"A picture is worth a thousand words, but often leaves out the important and contradictory back story."
Pin It Now!

All I can say is amen. Our Easter was similar-- less poop, more annoyed with each other.

And I can't believe that Ikea story. You guys are nuts.
