{Pretty, Happy, Funny, Real}

Capturing the context of contentment in everyday life...

Sunday was the first time I ever successfully got rubber bands into a certain pretty little girl's hair.  She wasn't sure about her pretty little piggies at first.

I think I could live on the hoagie rolls [and pizza] at the moment.  I've been wanting one for several days now and I finally got a few of them today.  

This child is such a goof.  She insisted on wearing the silly green pig tail headband her auntie gave her several months ago.  And you can see that she has a set of regular piggies, too.  She's getting used to me putting her hair in pigtails.  I think she looks older with them.  Her hair is wavy and curly and was looking too unkempt for me to bear keeping it down any longer.

I came home from Mass this morning and the living room looked like this.  I think I would die if someone popped over unexpectedly today and saw this mess.  But, since I am too tired to pick it up, it will stay like this until someone picks up all those blocks and other items that are scattered all over the floor.  Bryan suggested that I just not look at it in the meantime.  I think he's on to something.

  1. I don't think your mess is all that bad!! That's just a regular sort of day around my house... if people come over unexpectedly I'm not too worried if it's the kids' mess. :) Somehow I can detach myself from their mess, ha! (Food mess excluded)
