Nope... I didn't do it

As wonderful as it is to release the pent up embarrassing, silly, and oh-no-she-didn't moments I happen upon cause each week, this week seems to have amassed few confessions...

In fact, for once, I had a pretty uneventful week.

I did not reluctantly paw through a large box of goodies for Chi from her dad in California and find myself thinking "wow, this time he did okay." I did not then call and congratulate him for his efforts in making sure she had a winter coat.

I did not fall in love with the styles and talents of two photographers and decide I had to have them both shoot my family. I did not then stagger a series of photo sessions with Ya and Chi so that I could capture both children's appearances throughout the year without going broke. I also did not then follow up today's session with a trip to a department store studio because it is so rare that Chi's hair is freshly twisted and she is willing to pose her little heart out for the camera.

I did not get overly excited when my mother's colleagues unanimously agreed that one of my kids actually looks like me. Afterall, it's always a pleasure to hear how much they resemble their dads (and how I am no more than a warming pod for developing humans).

I did not discover sometime this week while scrolling through the other blogs I follow that it would be extra amazing if I wasn't working two jobs. I did not spend an evening contemplating how luxurious the life of a stay at home mom must be. I did not muse about the ultra clean house I would have and the perfectly put together children I would have if there were more time to dedicate to each.

I am loving your blog design and you have such cute kids! I would probably do the same in your situation (following up with a second photo session)... Have a good day and Merry Christmas!
