Taking pictures of two kids is not as easy as it looks

It starts with this one, and I'm not happy with Nora's smile:

So, we try again. She's going...


Let's try this again. YES, I did it!

Well, not quite, so let's try one more time. Again, not exactly the smile I was hoping for.

And, she's gone again...

This is getting a little better. If only I did a better job centering the photo.

And, I call this one "enough mom, I'm done".

"Please, Nora, one more?" I ask. And she obliges.

A note about the clothing - yes, my daughter is wearing a holiday sweater. For the record, I find these to only be appropriate for children. And yes, she is not wearing any pants, we're trying to potty learn over here, mmkay?

There is sanding and painting in my future.

Oy vey. File this one under two year old's are smart! Like, smart enough to do this kind of damage:

Thankfully, I caught it before it caught on fire, but it's stuck pretty much in place, I'm going to attempt to remove it without destroying the table! Good thing I have another iron and I'll be headed back to the basement with irons.

Received my apron from the Flirty Apron Swap

I received my cute apron today from my partner, along with the glittery red headband from Penny. Thanks so much!
