bad mommy

I make beautiful kids, huh? These pictures are several years old. I've been cleaning out my purse, looking for lost insurance cards, when I came across these. Kyler was always the cutest little guy--when you could see him. He was (and still is) quite hyperactive. I have to admit I lost my cool this morning. I had taken the morning off work to get some house stuff caught up. The phone rang at 9:00. It was the school nurse. Kyler had an earache and needed to go home. It was an hour before I could get there. In the meantime, he had returned to class and appeared to be doing fine. The nurse, however, felt he needed to go home, so my son comes bounding down the hallway, laughing with a friend. Whether or not he has an ear infection (we'll find out later today), I do believe he was well enough to remain in school. . .I told him that from now on, he is not to go to the nurse unless he feels it is a true emergency. I overreacted. Looking at this picture made me realize just how fast it goes and just how fleeting my influence on him may be.

While this may not be the typical tongue-in-cheek post most common to Fro' Me to You, check out some great stories at We are THAT family.

I don't think any of us have never lost our temper on occasion. I mean I just lost my temper with Big Brother this morning too. I was overwhelmed and he did the wrong thing and I scolded more than necessary.

It does go by way too fast. Great photos.

I'm glad I'm not the only mom dragging old photos around...mine are from when my oldest was six months old!
