mommy shots.uggggg.

my BF emily, sent out a challenge this week to capture pictures of yourself with your kids...instead of just the kids. speaking of just the kids, here's a pic i took of her kids and my kids a couple weeks ago. we both married asians, so it's hard to tell which are her kids and which are mine.

anyway, for the sake of my kid's memories, i tried to get some mommy shots each day this week. and they are pretty bad. i'm in half the picture. or we're blurry. whatever. i'll keep trying for some good ones this week.

monday: here we are in the paper goods section at target. i love that place, so i thought my kids should know, this is mommy's favorite place to shop. and i take you there a lot. daddy hates it and says things like, so this receipt is all groceries? when he's doing the budget. yes, i consider groceries to be such a vague term...there are many things on clearance that you just can't pass on, nkay?

tuesday: here we are in layne's bed after i woke him early from a nap to go to a family get together. grumpola central. he's like me though, we need time to adjust our eyes to sunlight. and we need a snack. then you can talk to us.

wednesday: and here we are this morning. no make up. totally crusty. so glad we turned out blurry.

  7. love the target pics (BTW when I get in trouble for my target receipts I say things like "fine. I won't buy any more toilet paper, soap or detergent because that's I just spent $100 on" it doesn't really work, but I still use it)

    Tuesday's in my favorite and yes all of the kiddos look alike=)

  9. Love 'em especially the cuddles in bed one. I tried to get a picture today and failed. I am never in front of the camera, always behind.

    Secondly, I seriously am drawing a blank on the string bikini discussion. Are you sure it was me? I rock out in my 'mom skirt' that hides my big 'ole butt at the pool.

  15. Um, I want a Target shot. That place is seriously my downfall, I've had to force myself to not go there so we can stick to our budget. But I love how you have a shot of one of the places you go most! :) Hmm...I may have to get more creative tomorrow...
