I Love This Kid!

As promised, here are pictures from "Mommy Spa Day". Before you look at the pictures, I have to tell you that I got a new lens for my camera. It's been recommended by several semi-professional/ professional photographers if you want your picture to focus in on your subject and blur out the background. I think the pictures are much more "crisp" (a highly technical photography term). While I love the pictures, I'm not liking how "crisp" the wrinkles around my eyes look. Yikes! These pictures don't leave anything to the imagination. So, yes ... I'm old. Please be nice :)


Ready for action. Make-up bag in hand.

Hair and make-up station

Painting my toenails - with clear polish.
(I wasn't about to ruin my real pedicure!)

This is what the kids really wanted to be doing .... playing on the computer!

This is the best . . . Eric's "Mommy Facts". I appreciate the fact that I only weigh one pound. I especially like the answer to "What does she cook". Eric's answer: "Unknown". (is that a bad thing?)

The teacher put together a video of the kids each reading a few of their "Mommy Facts". Of all the facts Eric elects to recite on video for everyone to hear .... My mom is 48 years old. I'm at least ten years older than the next oldest mom in the room. Thanks Eric! I'm so glad everyone now knows that I'm practically old enough to be your grandma. (or maybe my wrinkles already gave it away?!) Regardless, I LOVE THIS KID! He makes me laugh and one can never get too much of that.


Have a great weekend and for all the moms, have a very, very happy Mother's Day!

What does she cook... Unknown. HILARIOUS!!!

You look beautiful. You definitely don't look 48. Wrinkles, what wrinkles???

Have a wonderful Mother's Day!

I don't see no wrinkles! Why do you think I hide behind my specs all the time! I'm 2 weeks older than you! You could sail a battleship on my bags! I'm about 10 years older than most of the other parents waiting in the playground too. I like the fact that you're 10 feet tall and weigh a pound - hey you could be a supermodel!!

Out of the mouths of babes. Love it! I got a new camera recently and now most of my pictures of Ben show every detail of the dried up mucus/food on his face. Lovely.

I love how his answers after the cooking one make him seem annoyed at all the questions! aaaaaahhh, and ugh! He was done with that project! He is hysterical!!! And I agree - you look fantastic.

Hey, you only weigh 1 pound!

Cindy said...

Love the mommy facts! 10 feet tall, huh? What are you doing in the picture he drew? You look happy doing it, whatever it is...

I think it's hilarious that he said he didn't know on so many but clearly knew and stated your age. You do look great and I think our age is a badge of honor to be proud of. I can't wait to see more pictures with the new lense.

I do like the idea he thinks you are 10 feet tall! He is a hoot!
