Whew!

Made it through another week. (Guess it's been more than one since I blogged last.)
There were no knock-down drag-out fights between my children while I was gone to work. (thankfully).

I don't want to quit my job - I enjoy the extra income, and the interaction with adults. But.. if the kids can't get it together... I think they did fairly well, but it's not good when a child hangs up the phone on her parent... sheesh. We'll get there.
On a brighter note, I want to challenge you to do something, my loyal readers (hee, hee).
This last week we went to my nephew's first birthday party. It's a family tradition of ours to let the 1 year old have his own piece of cake and let him dig into it! Jessica also had her hair cut to donate to locks of love - it looks really cute!!
Anyway, I pulled her close to me while we were at the party, and had my hubby take a picture of us! She tried to squirm away.. silly girl! Some of you may know how temperamental 11 year olds are. Anyway, I told her that I would give anything to have a more recent picture with my mom! Or even more when I was younger - there aren't many.
So, my challenge to you is to get a picture of you and your mom! You don't have to post it to your blog - but if you live in the same vicinity as your mom, get a picture taken of the two of you!

I used to think that I didn't look much like my mom, but I guess more and more I do..

Her hair looks so cute! I've always wanted to donate my hair, but have been a little too chicken to do it. But someday I will...I'll just have to work on growing it back out.

That is a great idea! I'll do it! Thanks for reminding us what IS IMPORTANT!

Her hair looks adorable! I've still got about 2 more inches until I can donate. The time will not come fast enough in these nearly unbearable Oklahoma summers. Heat PLUS humidity.. always my favorite - blah!

I'll need to get a picture of me and my mom. That's a great idea. Unfortunately, I probably won't see her again for another year.. :( I'll have to look for the latest and post it!

Oh, I LOVE Jessica's hair! That's so darling- and so perfect for summer!

My mom comes home one month from today and I get to spend two weeks with her in Utah before she comes to spend two weeks with me here when the baby is born- I CAN'T WAIT! I love the idea to be sure and get a picture of the two of us- I don't know when the last time was that I did that. I'm always the one taking the pictures, so rarely in them. But now that you mention it, I really want that! Thanks Amy!

Jessica's hair looks cute! What a cute cut! I don't know that I would be brave enough to cut all my hair off, I'm kind of a chicken! Cute picture of the two of you!

I admire her for donating her hair! That's marvelous. It's a great picture of the two of you.

I have a funny picture and of mom and me. She had broken her ankle and I had foot surgery. We were both wearing leg casts and were on crutches!
