Yesterday was Easter. Last year I was mentally out to lunch. So no Easter photos were to be had.
I am busy giving out commands of where to look, how to look, where to sit, how to sit, where to stand and how to stand.
What was I talking about? Where did my camera go?
By that time I’m crying… Wondering what was the purpose of taking an Easter picture to begin with. I feel like my kids, by this point.
Declan-Pick you mouth. Duncan-Stare at the ground. Duke-Grab you ear and cry. Darien-Grimace at your brother. Kittee-Slouch and look bored. Kathleen-Snee… AAA CHEW!”
Kathleen-Itchy nose. Duncan-Durr Herr Herr. Declan-The sun is shining in my eyes, except there’s no sun in my eyes. Darien-The permanent grin. Duke-I want to be set free. Kittee-Snuggle bear.
Things are looking brighter and better.
“Daddy you’re so funny.”
Switching things around is a good thing to do.
“This is a wrap! I’m done. Everyone’s eyes are semi open. Perfect. Ya’ll can go to the van, because we’re headin’ to Cracker Barrel.”
Reality is as real as it gets when people are involved.
Love, Forever Out To Lunch
