Do you remember.....

..... what it was like before you had kids? More specifically, do you remember what it was like to kiss your husband before you had kids. The other night, Kenny went outside and I went and joined him on the porch to talk, without the girls. Within seconds, Isabella was at the patio doors with a pitiful look on her face, which then turned to falling on her knees pouting. Then Amelia joined her and was trying to open the door and then started pressing her face against the window. It was like they thought they were missing out on something great by not being right with us (which is also why I always have an audience while I'm using the bathroom) Then once we were inside, we were standing in the kitchen and I put my arms around Kenny's neck and kissed him and Amelia started pulling at my leg, then wedged herself in between us, saying "Nah, my mommy", then Kenny gets hit in the back with a little ball from Isabella. Just as I was about to say it, Kenny said "what was it like before we had kids...." :) Amelia is especially jealous of mommy, she doesn't want Kenny to hug or kiss me, and she doesn't want to share me with him. Isabella on the other hand, just wants to be a part of whatever is going on. When she was around Amelia's age, she would cry if we were hugging, but instead of seperating us, she would say "group hug."


We also took the girls on a little hike the other night and instead of lugging my big Nikon, we took Kenny's small digital camera with us. I don't know what it is about small little cameras that make me feel like I'm in high school and I have the need to turn the camera around and try to take pictures of myself, Kenny and I, etc, but I did that half of the evening. :) When we did want to take a picture of the girls after they climbed up a rock, these are what we got:
















But, when I would revert to my 14 year old self and would try to take a picture of Kenny and I, this is what happened, all of a sudden she was ready to smile. :)

We actually tried to get Amelia in one of these pictures as well, but she wasn't interested, she was more interested in playing in the creek, oh yeah, and we sat her on daddy's lap instead of mommy's and that made her mad. Crazy kids.

I can't remember what it was like before kids. Now it is Mommy will you buy this, mommy will you buy that, mommy can I have this......... And next year it will be....Mommy can I practice driving?!?! But without the kids I would be lost. Enjoy them while they are innocent and small. Cause then they are teenagers and you hope that you raised them to make the right decisions when your not around.

It's because I'm squished and hidden, I don't like myself in pictures (as well as the fact that I'm normally behind the camera.) :)

oh I know what you mean! If Kayla sees us hugging she comes running up to us saying "up! up!" and we do the group hug too. Most times she'll push mine and Joe's face together and tells us to kiss :)

lol on the "little cameras making you feel like a 14 year old." -I totally get it! That is a really cute picture of you, Kenny and Isabella. You can tell that it's one of Isabella's real smiles, instead of those one we get when we're asking for a smile. You look beautiful!
