Unicorns and Rainbows

Hey there. Remember me? Probably not, it's been so long since I've updated. But I guess of all of my children to neglect, my Blog Baby is the most acceptable.

Wish I had a good reason for not updating. Like we took a 2 month long cruise to Alaska. Or that my hubby bought me an IPad that I have been trying to learn how to blog on. But sadly, no. Neither of those happened. I just haven't felt like it. Lame, I know.

And actually, I was laying in bed a while ago thinking, this is the best time to blog. My mind wasn't bogged down by all of the days activities yet, and the kids were still sleeping peacefully. I got up and wandered into the office where I promptly stepped on this horrible Elmo toy that we have. You know, the kind that has a button to turn on the loudest music and sounds ever heard but no off switch anywhere (how is that even approved for children's play use, I don't know, because if our children go deaf by the time they are twenty, I know who I will be suing). Anyway, I stepped on Elmo and he got mad and starting playing the guitar so loudly that I smothered him with a pillow and waited.... yup: not two seconds later I hear "MOMMY? I have to go pottttttyyyyy!" I swear she wakes up already going ninety miles an hour every day. Noah, not so much. He will wake up and then demand to lay on the couch for the next two hours while he acclimates to having his eyes open. But Bells will open her eyes and immediately start asking me what day it is, what's for breakfast, what dress can she wear, and what is "our plan" for the day.

So anyway, Elmo kinda blew my opportunity to have a long, well written, therapeutic blog post for today. But now that I think about it, this is already long and I haven't even updated on anything yet, so I can't really blame Elmo. I guess I'm still just not really in the mood to whine about my anxiety and flip out on blogger that we still don't have a diagnosis. Don't start cheering about this yet, I'm sure that will all come back. But today's post will be all about Unicorns and Rainbows. Fitting, since I'm wearing the Rainbow Bright shirt that Serena got me for my Birthday this year. See:

Notice Elmo in the cowboy hat on the floor in the background. I really don't like that toy.

Okay, so remember my last post? The one that was front and center on your blog list for the past two months because I've been an MIA Blogger? Well we got back our spring pictures...

Remember when I said Bells was all sweetness and smiles but refused to look at the camera?


Okay, so now remember how I said that when she finally, against her will, looked at the camera the look she gave was not a "YAY, Spring Pictures!" face?


Also notice the red cheeks and the dark circles under her eyes. That would be the cold she started that day. The only thing missing is her snot bubbles and the drool on her chin, and our whole day would have been summarized in this one picture. But still, against all I would have thought, I love the few pictures we got. Even (especially) this one.

Noah's pictures came back really pretty good too. He was such a two year old boy that day, acting crazy, running around trees and tearing up flowers.

Who me? No, I'm a total angel.

He looks all innocence here, but that leaf was crumbled and thrown like confetti two seconds later.

Totally Busted

Serious Goof Ball

It's hard to remember the stress of that day now, because when I look at these pictures I just want to laugh. This is who we are. I am unorganized but over-prepared. He is goofy and inappropriate. She is sweet and stubborn. And hubby is patient and mild. I love that these pictures captured some of that. And I'm not sorry that this is who we are, even if it causes me stress on picture day.

I have all kinds of things to update on other than spring pictures, including a trip to the Neurologist, a trip to the ENT, another hearing test, and two new therapies, but I'm thinking this is enough Unicorns and Rainbows for one post.

I'll be back soon. I promise not to neglect my Blog Child like this again.
