I wonder if the gushy, lovey, my-family-is-beautiful-and-perfect tone of this site is a turn off for some people. I mean if we're being honest, sometimes it makes me gag a little. Truly, though, life is not perfect. I am blessed, to be sure. But it doesn't mean we're without the runny noses, tantrums, budgets, piles of dirty laundry and sleepless nights that are an integral part of parenthood. Seriously, each of the pictures in this post were either prefaced or followed by a Major Screaming Fit of Doom.
That being said, I am making a choice. My choice is to document for posterity our happiness and joy. Even if they're a little bit forced. Surely, sometimes I will digress, but mostly I want to remember that even when we are in the weeds (and trust me, we are in the weeds), there is good. We are good.
