[crappy phone pics cause Adam was not really feeling the impromptu photo shoot.
but Elijah sure was! look at that grin! :)]

being a mom, Sundays can be the best and worst days of the week.
for one, i have an excuse to get dressed.
and not just in anything, in actually cute clothes!

{so that’s always a plus!}
it’s one of the only days out of the week that i can feel pretty and not just a frumpy mom.
even though i am a frumpy mom so it’s a total wolf-in-sheep’s-clothing situation.

and some other reasons it’s a great day is the obvious:
visiting with good friends, uplifting messages, and yummy Sunday dinners
[that i have to make though… so maybe that’s a negative?]

so yes, Sundays are a special day…
until you have a toddler.
then it’s all:
-can’t hear the speakers
-{possibility} of no nap so cranky cranky kid
-OR naps at bad times so bedtime is a horror-fest
-chasing said cranky kid in the hall
-whining & refusal to get ready before church
-begging for fruit snacks as if he will pass out if he doesn’t get one more sugary bite
and the list can go on.

[except this Sunday, Elijah’s friend Kinley got to sit with us at church so that kept him entertained enough to {semi} listen to the speakers. yay for friends!]

at least i got to feel kind of pretty doing all that right?
feeling pretty can definitely go a loooong way on a bad day.

You're cute. Your Sunday wardrobe was stupendous. And I totally have a love/hate relationship with Sunday as well. It is very bittersweet. I laughed as you were describing your son's behavior because, in some ways, it resembles my husbands...he always waits until the last second to get dressed and I think he had more trouble than our toddler when we quit bringing snacks... BUT, he does all of the removing-said-toddler-from-the-meeting and hallway chasing duties so I'll count myself lucky. All the other moms say that one day it get easier...we can do this.

YES!! Feeling pretty certainly goes a long way!! Meg, you still have to tell me how you guys do church for 3 hours with a toddler, because my 4.5 year old probably wouldn't sit still for 5 minutes. Seriously, if yours can go for 10 I am amazed!!
