Pictures Say 1000 Words

Pictures say 1000 words.....I just wish I had a picture of my outing with all three boys to the dentist earlier this week. After the dentist we headed to Wal-mart to get some medicine for James, who was in tears. All though wal-mart James is crying about his tooth. Meanwhile Jackson begins into his fit and need to be held. I finally looked at James and told him that if he doesn't pull it together we are going back to the dentist and I will just have the dentist pull out that tooth. That sent James over the top, Jackson crying ready to eat and Josh roaming the toy aisle. I thought, "I wonder what would happen when I leave all three boys in walmart?" I could see the headlines, "Local Mom goes crazy and leaves three boys in the aisle at Walmart" Weighing my options it was rather close. After getting out to the car getting James medicine and feeding Jackson I am dripping sweat. In my attempt to hold it all together I think.."I really signed up for this...."

In my fit of RAGE and many hours (ok days) later...I came across these pictures on my camera and they made me smile. I need to try and remember the good that these the boys bring into my life. Although at times the good seems few and far between.

I can't seem to get enough of this little kid smiles.

This kid is full of any and all thing random. We were sitting outside and out of no where Josh informed me that he can be The Statue of Liberty. WHAT!! Who is this kid. I never know what to expect.

This studious kid got an award at school that his teacher nominated him for. I really shouldn't have been surprised when I received the letter. Clearly, he gets his smarts from his dad.

Lesson for me to learn....There are good moments as well as all the bad and I need to focus on those good moments

Ah, the joys of Walmart/shopping with kids. Sorry it was so bad, but those pictures are very cute. Love Jackson's smile.

I think that shopping with my kids is for the birds...there is never anything good that comes of it. Ever.

Jackson's dimples are SO cute. What a darling baby.

Sorry about the Walmart disaster. I'm impressed you made it out alive. I'm worried I would have had the nervous breakdown.

Jamie said...

Wow. Jackson could not be any cuter. Seriously. Those dimples are darling!

Jill said...

Oh my gosh! I could just steal that little boy! That smile and those dimples are just adorable!

Walmart sound like a nightmare!!! Good for you for giving it a go! I would've been too scared!

Don't you just love your kids when they're sleeping? :)
