1. I don't care if it's pouring rain, I'm sure people will want to see what I wore to Mass under the coat I took off zeroteen times.

2.1 Why don't you put the "flip cell phone" lens on ... those photos always turn out crystal clear. Perfect.
Simon came home from work a little before 8 this morning and after a night of 30 combined minutes of sleep for the parents the temptation of Netflix a la high chair and a chocolate chip cookie breakfast for our "adjusted to the time change with no problems" early rising Bash while the sane members of the family slept was just too great to resist. So we had to hit up the 11:30 hour long Mass like civilized Catholics. The only word that comes to mind to adequately describe the hour in our section of the second to last pew would be: shitshow. Sebastian arched his back over and over and over, ripped off my glasses and put them on (fit like a glove) threw them on the ground, hit me in the nose so hard that I came thisclose to crying but I held it together and tilted my head back so that my eyes could reabsorb the tears - hopefully you're familiar with that maneuver because it comes in handy sometimes. Theo required a lot of attention as babies sometimes do. Sebastian kept back arching, yelling syllables, and garnered an impressive slew of stink eyes from the surrounding church goers. We did graduate from, "okay you run up to communion while I sit here with the car seat then I'll bring up the tail end of the line while you sit here with the car seat" to taking all three kids up to communion - Julia on foot! She'll be pronouncing her L's correctly before I know it.
I know I join a wild cacophony of bloggers (and regular people) calling for better weather and this morning really had me muttering bad words about this eternal winter. I was just looking at a photo on our fridge from last march and realized that last year the weather was WAY better. Pull it together, 2013. Pull it tofreakinggether.
Julia: A (weird. she even told Jesus he was "riddy riddy nice" as she was walking out)
Bash: F (Simon said he should merely get a mark for attendance ... )
Theo: B (I know he can do better)
I was so excited to find out I won this awesome giveaway last night. Don't ever tell me it doesn't pay to read lots and lots and lots of blogs.
Linking up with FLAP. You should do the same.
