She really is a pretty little thing and not nearly as bendy as the haters say that she is.
Rain finally came to to the Valley and I did ask my darling husband if he would rather take the car into work in the Bay Area rather than the bike because I could easily get up at o’dark thirty to take Jodie to work and then go home to sleep until it was time to take Daniel to school. No big deal. Jodie would have a triple latte ready for me when it was time to pick her up.
No was his answer.
He got soaked.
The morning after the rain is the best when everything is so fresh and clean…except the mom-car.
Oh, and sunrises as I leave work in the early morning are the best because, yes, I worked! I worked callback which is even better!!
The sunrise view in my mirror reminds me that my day is done…as soon as I drop my son off to school.
This son, my favorite son, who every day, all the time reminds me how lucky I am to say that I am his mom!
But LITERALLY the most exciting thing happening under the Big Top this week was these salt and pepper grinders.
I have become very bad about capturing life under The Big Top with my camera. I still carry my camera with me practically everywhere I go but more often than not I’m just holding it, or worse, it is sitting in my bag. I was thinking that as I looked at this shot that has been living in my camera for a few days now.
And after berating myself for not taking pictures like I used to, I found myself smiling just a little bit because I DID CAPTURE THIS MOMENT…THIS MOMENT OF AWESOME BETWEEN A DADDY AND A DAUGHTER!!!
We are home, after an 11 hour drive, home from Vegas. According to navigation, it should have been an 8+ hour drive…you know, without traffic, road work, potty training 2 year olds and distractions like that.
At most dance competitions this is the norm and, unlike SOME parents, I respect the rule. It really is for the privacy and protection of our children. Thankfully professional videos and photographs are available at the venues for us to purchase. Sometimes they are even kind of affordable like at this weekend’s competition.
Yeah, I paid for this picture.
How could I not?
JoAnn summed it up perfectly saying you can tell that all her hard work has paid off with this picture right here. Thankfully, that shot (and the fact that I paid for it) was the only fail of the weekend.
There was nothing but platinums at the end of this Rainbow Dance Competition for my favorite Dance Star.
