Picture Perfect

They've gotten way better at school pics since my childhood. Although I definitely wore suspenders in my first grade (?) photo.

PRESCHOOL PHOTO, AGE 4 They’ve gotten way better at school pics since my childhood. Lasers have been replaced with real trees.  Although I definitely wore suspenders in my first grade (?) photo.

Obviously, the day wasn’t all this cute. And it started at 5:45 a.m., which NEVER happens around here. We’re more likely to sleep until 8:30. So it was excruciating when both children woke up when it was still dark, thereby negating my ability to get either one of them back to sleep (I can do it when it’s just one, but when it’s both, I’m toast).

This afternoon Das Big Boy even told me, “I’m really exhausted.” Even so, today’s wingdings were one-sided and mercifully brief given the lack of sleep, and we ended the day on our usual date with Dr. G. and her kiddos, which was superfun as my kids are often cheerful in the presence of others when they’re totally grumpypants with me. I’d say humph, except I’m totally one of those people who can have a rip-roaring argument with Herr Husband on our way to a party only to be completely charming and fun when we get there.

But frankly, I’m too tired to be all that charming or fun now that I’m home, so I think I’ll pour a glass of wine and read about Wonder Woman.
