My belated and off-topic Thanksgiving post

I often draft posts in my head. My newest, in-the-head draft, consisted of a list of all the things I am thankful for in my life. Like snuggling new babies, my husband of 11 years (it seems like just yesterday it was our 10 year celebration), and of course my boys.

I was wading through some pictures to emphasize each of these points and came across this one from this weekend.

What a lovely moment between a mother and her son. Passing on the craft. He was excitedly following my instructions and quite proud of himself for knitting a row.

Then I realized this is what was going on behind me.

Note the look of intensity on my Stink's face. I assure you he's not thinking of knitting with that; only what trouble he can get himself into.

What a great picture! He'll come round too, I'm sure.

That is funny. And not altogether unexpected, knowing your kids.

In other news, Princess the First is now referring to Jack as her boyfriend. I thought you'd want to know.

How the perspective of both pictures. =)

Jill said...

You have beautiful babies too. How crazy do all those boys make you?

T. said...

Oh my god, that is hilarious. I have a feeling Arlo will be much like the Stink in less than a year. Wine save us all!
