a long time ago.

look closely.

a long time ago.

at church.

me: speaking to the congregation.

Richie: managing the crazies.

Congregation: silent.

Cardon: has to pee.
as per every second of his life.

"just wait until mommy's done and we'll go potty."


as per every second of his life.


and Cardon,
that is why I love to be made crazy by you.

of every.single.day.
of forever.and.ever.and.EVER.

so glad you're mine.

every single crazy little bit of you.



workshopping it here in Calgary tomorrow!
can't wait to meet all my new friends!

I like reading stories of when your "boys will be boys" (that picture is a prime example). I have a 10-month old son and am about 10% scared - but 90% excited! - at what's in store for me. I'm glad you can laugh at this story...now :)

Yesterday Dallin said, "my poo lives in my bum!" Kids are the best. You just keep doing these workshops and someday I will be in a spot where I can actually come and learn and enjoy every second....someday...I can feel it...someday. Love you Nat. Have a great workshop!

Melody said...

LOL oh dear. That is a good one.

My grandpa was a preacher, most recently at a very (very!!) small countryside church. We were visiting one Sunday and my son was pretty little, maybe 4. Everyone was praying silently and then my grandpa started praying out loud. This is fairly normal stuff I thought but for some reason it was confusing to my son. Maybe because this time the pastor was someone he really knew. As soon as mt grandpa started praying my son started saying "SHHHHH!" louder and louder. After being ignored he just yelled "Grandpa, be quiet!!!" lol

JAR Photography & Design said...

OMG... my son has to be every sec too. It drives me crazy, even made me think something might be wrong with him. LOL He will be 4 tomorrow and still has to wear a pull up to bed because he pees every night. I swear, I can't go shopping anywhere without him peeing at least once or twice.

Amanda said...

Jenny said...

Andrea@Sgt and Mrs Hub said...

I have many, many photos of Judah relieving himself in "the wild." Because his little white booty is too cute not to get a shot of :)

Shepherd Family ACALPM said...
