Pressing On

I almost displayed an extreme lapse of judgement.
I originally was going to bless you with a photo of the mouse intestines that L-boy handed to me today.
Thanks to our very resourceful cat.
Talk about a "you know you're a mom" moment.
Or more like a "disgusting, throw up in your mouth" moment!
However, on second thought....I decided to spare you the gory details.

Instead....I thought I'd share this moment with you.
Because it made me feel all warm and fuzzy.
We walk down the road to fetch the mail every evening.
I say "fetch"  because I'm pretending to be Laura Ingalls.
Pushing L-boy's stroller down the hill is a breeze. 
The kids often fight over who gets to do it.
But when her "fickle" older brothers are nowhere to be found on the way back up...

This "little mommy" digs in and gets the job done.

L-boy is one blessed little dude!

And I am one blessed mother.
 
 

I'm joining in with Arizona Mamma and The Long Road to China today.
How about it....
can I tempt you to do the same??

These are beautiful! I love the color, the sun rays and the composition - on top of the Little Mommy's Can DO attitude!

What great pictures! I wish I had the "eye" like all you fabulous photographers! I'm seeing a lot of great black and whites!

Have a Wonderful Wednesday!

The Empress said...

Oh, thank you for sparing us that. Now I don't have to do the payback with the post on the "gift" my son left me in my purse 85 years ago.

Sweet photos! The B/W really work well here.

Heather said...

That is so sweet of S-girl!!

Courtney said...

What a great picture! I love it! And thanks for sparing us. :)

Jennifer said...

So glad you spared us the details. This pic is so MUCH better. It's beautiful. The story behnind it makes it even more beautiful. I just love your photos. Amazing!

Carrie said...

Awwww ... what a precious site!! ;)

Tanya said...

Ummmmmmmm...can we I just say how ridiculously heart-melting this photo/post is??? Love!

McCrakensx4 said...

What beautiful pictures! Love the lighting! And I know about boys and what they bring you...eeewwww!

Eileen said...

Awwww. Love the S girl. And am I wrong or is she tall? Maybe it's just the picture, but her legs look so long compared to her Guiping buddy, Maya. Of course, Maya never wears pants, so maybe the skirts cutting her off halfway just make her look shrimpy.

And speaking of her, man, has she gotten feisty lately! Yesterday her sister said, "I miss the interferon." Yeah, me too. Give the girl a little medicated exhaustion and we're all the better!

{sigh} Laura Ingalls and Little House ... {hmmm}

Oh...sorry...
Thanks for sharing this morning ...
a giggle with my coffee! Perfect.

My life right now is surrounded by
colors of brown ... I look forward
to being more creative in full-color.

Loved your links up too ... I'll
be back soon ~j.

Life with Kaishon said...

Oh my gosh. That is one beautiful picture. I am now thinking of rat guts and I just want to thank you for that lovely visual... : )

blueviolet said...

That is very sweet and thank you for leaving the guts out of things.

liz said...

Aww! What a good kid! Beautiful photos, too. :)

Hannah said...

I love that first picture. That is amazing!

Thank you for leaving the guts out of this. That is just icky.
Once when my hubby and I were first married my then indoor cat decided to catch a mouse in the garage, bring it in the house and leave it's head underneath the Christmas tree on top of a present. I guess it was the giving season!

Sonora said...

What a clever and efficient way to participate in two memes on the same day! These are great black and whites. I do love that the little mommy pitches in to help. That doesn't look like an easy hill to push anything up.

Manda said...

You are right, I prefer the photos that were chosen over the guts of a mouse.

3LittleMonkeys said...

What sweet pictures and what a sweet little girl you have there!

Darn, I knew I should have had a girl! Now I know why I do all the work around here....

Seizing My Day said...
