That’s a rap…. yes, RAP.

Look here! I actually took some photos.
Go me!

So this is a somewhat typical morning.

However, contrary to what the above picture exudes, mornings are less than calm.

My coffee is usually cold by the time I finish it.
There is at least one argument.
Oh, and someone cries.
Not me…
Okay, sometimes me.
I dislike mornings with the utmost passion.

Mornings. Blech.


So do my girls.
Though I may be projecting a bit.


I’m sure anyone is unlikely to prefer mornings when their mom asks “have you brushed your teeth??” ten times without realizing she received an answer the first time.
That happened this morning.
I even heard the answer then asked again…about three more times.

I’m a hopeless case.


But at least I can admit it. Right?

Back to the pictures…My goal was to capture photos of the entire day.
Unfortunately, I made it to just little past lunch and things got crazy..
Up in here, up in here…….

Y’all gon’ make me lose my mind
Up in here, up in here….


…Y’all gon’ make me act a FOOL
Up in HERE, up in here
Y’all gon’ make me lose my cool
Up in here, up in here


And just where was I going with that amazing rendition of DMX?

No Idea.

But I have to say those particular lyrics capture parenting more than one would realize.
(but don’t read too much into the rest of that song….because well.. umm it’s not very parentish….*cough*)

PS that song was released in 1999.

I just can’t handle this.

1999 people!!!

Pre marriage, pre babies, pre highschool diploma!
Good Lord.
DMX got me all sentimental.. up in here…

    Oh, Alishia! You’re just the same as you were in 1999…cracking me up! I’ll bet I still have those various “Jens” you drew in Japanese class way back when. I’m afraid they were quite accurate. :/

    I love your beautiful photos! Keep ’em coming!

      Thanks Jen, and if you ever find those I would love to see them! I’m trying to remember exactly what they were. 🙂
