It's Monday....what do I see?

So, there is no snow. And it's 85 degrees outside. But, we still got fall leaves!
So outside we play.
And here is one of those "oops" bad parenting moments. I wanted to go outside and got the boys dressed. "J" was complaining he was tired. I told him he had been inside all day and it was time for him to get some fresh air. He whined and complained and said he wanted to lay in bed with Daddy. (Daddy was under the weather and taking it easy). So I say fine. (My ego bruised that he wanted Daddy) I take "L" on an awesome walk and after an hour come back inside the house with leaves in hand to talk about our adventure.
Henry looks at me and says, "I think "J" is sick."
I walk over to him and feel his head.
102 fever.
Bad mommy moment.
I give him a hug. I run around for juice, water, his blankie, a pillow and pop in a DVD for him to watch. His favorite DVD. I rub his hair and hope that he doesn't remember that I made him feel guilty about not "feeling the fresh air".
Sometimes I need to slow down and look at what is in front of me.
In the meantime...enjoy these pics.


  1. I just love that top photo. I love motion in pictures and I love that he is walking out of the photo.
    Hope you had a wonderful holiday!
