picture post – a happy anniversary

pink roses

Because it’s Monday, and Mondays are crazy for everyone, even stay-at-home moms, we’ll do a picture post!

Roses. I know, who hasn’t seen roses before? But these are my roses, and that makes them special.

I’m feeling a little bit frazzled today. I’m organizing another Biggest Loser kind of challenge with my mommy friends, and I have about 33 ladies this time around. That starts today, and hopefully I’ll knock off another ten pounds this time (minus the four that I’m making up from over the holidays, of course).

Frazzled also because my baby was just tortured at the doctor! His 18 month check-up went perfectly until it was time to draw blood for lead testing. Not a little finger prick, but a real in-the-arm blood draw! In his little baby arms!!!

She couldn’t get his vein in the first arm, and she couldn’t get it in the second either. And after about 5 minutes of trying, I said, no, we’ll try again some other time.

Ugh! He was so sad 🙁

And then he still had to get his vaccines! (A different nurse, thank God!)

So that’s all. But the roses are nice. They’re pink, and happy, and doesn’t pink make everything just a little bit brighter?
