Stating the obvious.

Tom, just now:

Mom, you didn't get your hair ready.
When you don't get your hair ready, you don't look beautiful.

Just the pep talk I needed this morning.

I am sooo tired. Is it okay to nap at 9:30 am?

p.s. My Mac takes pictures of me. And yes, that is a york peppermint patty. And yes, that is my laundry. In my defense, the basket on the dryer, and the towels on the floor are clean, just not folded.

Ha! I almost never look beautiful by that definition. I also took an almost two hour nap at ten o'clock this morning because the husband was home.

you don't need to make any concessions here- you have a newborn. enough said.

Bryn said...

When you have a newborn, I thought naptime was anytime you could get away with it!

Amber said...

That is just so awesome that you took that picture! Made my day...that's why I love your blog!

i napped at about 10:30. it's just fine with me. my breakfast was a soda, so you're really kicking my butt here.

jt said...

your undone hair beats my done hair every day. lucky!

Jenni said...

Seriously, you look so pretty! And you totally get a year free-pass...newborn! =) It was fun seeing you last week...your little one is just adorable and I can't believe how big your others have gotten. Time flies!

this might be one of my all time favorite posts!

my hair, laundry, dishes are very similar most days... and i've napped at 9:30 twice this month.

at least you look happy! I never look that good when I'm tired and have laundry to do. And yes, a nap at 9:30am sound perfectly reasonable to me!

Kari said...

Love it.
You can always trust the babies to be completely honest. Must be better at teaching the art of lying.

That looks like your college dorm room my friend. You and Liz would pile it all up and then meticulously iron everything before wearing and then returning it to the other pile on floor of dirty laundry. Of course "Single Kelly" would never have let anyone take a picture of her without her hair I am proud of you! Besides, my laundry room looks like that and I have no kids. :)

Sam last night:
Mom, awe you pwegnant again?
Me: No, why?
Because yo tummy is big and wound like yo pwegnant again.
Me: sigh.

I'm gonna sell him.

Oh, and if you're unfortunate enough to be awake at 9:30, than yes, it's perfectly acceptable to go back to bed for a nap.

SO,I never did get a nap. And I'm glad to hear some of you all nap in the am. But got more sleep last night, so I'm feeling rather chipper today.

Beth! Now that you bring it up, I wonder if I spend so much time here in the laundry room because it looks just like my dorm room (small and filled with dirty clothes). Even the Mac computer. Ah, the good old days.

What are you doing these days? So glad you came to visit!

Bethany said...

Oh I visit your site all the time...just never leave my witty commentary. I have several blogs that I read, have to spread myself around. Just're my only!

I'm good...enjoying the "Spring" weather before the punishng heat begins here in Texas, just like you in AZ. I'm going to an Arts Festival today, I will eat a corn dog and funnel cake for you.

Heather said...

I hope you took a nap!

You look gorgeous!!! Miss you guys! Your babe is beautiful, sweet pic of him in your post below!
