Her first tattoo

Ava with her first tattoo 10/26/08 “Brock Obama!”

And because I have a hard time going entirely wordless I have to add that she was flashing her Obama tummy at shoppers in line at the grocery store this weekend. I could never get away with that myself, but my 4-year-old sure can. 😉

Oh, and yes, it’s only temporary.

Brock Omama for pwesident – Wordless Wednesday

I haven’t written much about my political views here. It’s not because I don’t want to share them or that I’m afraid of turning off some readers (that’s not it at all). It’s due to lack of time, which I admit, with an election that is as important as this one, that’s a pretty lame excuse. I plan to write a bit more about my thoughts later this week, but for now I’ll leave you with two very cute Obama supporters.

Gone pickin’ – WW

It’s been a while since I posted for Wordless Wednesday, so since I’ve been busy with other things and not had a chance to write much, here goes (though its not entirely wordless).

Picking raspberries in a neighbor’s vacant yard. The kids ate them almost as fast as we picked them.

And pickin’ green beans in our own yard. Had ’em for dinner last night. 🙂

Wordless Wednesday – 4/30/08 – A picture is worth…

They say a picture is worth a thousand words, but right now in the Mother’s Day Giveaway at 5 Minutes for Mom, your picture could be worth a thousand dollars. There’s a photo contest going on, the theme is Motherhood and the winner is going to receive a $1,000 AmEx gift card!

This picture says motherhood to me:

Motherhood - 10/22/06

It is me with Ava and Julian, one month and one day before he was born.

I know this isn’t exactly wordless, but since it’s for a good cause – actually 1,000 good causes – I hope you’ll forgive me. 😉

Wordless Wednesday – 3/12/08 – Sad, but true

Wrong on the Internet
From xkcd

And now for a few words making this a not-so-wordless Wednesday. I realize I haven’t had much in the way of substance on my blog so far this week, but I’ve been enjoying the warmer temps (66 degrees here today) and trying to live more in the moment with my kids. I’m still working on finding that perfect balance between being mommy, working, and blogging. I haven’t figured it out yet. If you have, please clue me in. 🙂
