Some happy thoughts from old photos...

You know when looking at old pictures just makes you feel better? Reliving the moment makes you smile, laugh and wish you were back in time to experience it all over again. Well, except birthing pictures, I don't want to recall that pain again unless I get something good out of it again...

It was a frustrating parenting night. Mostly since we changed his medication before school starts, JC has had beautiful days. The weekend he was so focused that he wanted to do nothing but puzzles all day. There in the living room were over 10 puzzles assembled with out help and mostly without him looking at the box for help. We have ben 10, spiderman, transfomers and animals. Simply amazing. His focus, mood and behavior was odd...unusual...but then the backlash from the meds hit at dinner time and I want to cry...

What made it better? Dad found all the old pictures and we sat at laughed, smiled and tried to remember each day the photos were taken. I suppose I needed that, especially right at that "i feel like a horrible mom" moment. Here were just a few of photos that ended up being my happy dose last night.



I was still on maternity leave when I took pictures all day...JC just a few months old, waking up from a nap



JC about 6 months? somewhere around 2001. We start em off early!


I wasn't here when this was taken, but it was shortly after his first haircut. The boy had long, blond curly hair for so long!
(about 2003)

How cute is he?! I, too, love taking those trips down memory lane with my kids' pictures. It's all the cuteness with none of the tantrums, haha.

He was so cute and still is! It's fun to go back, I love looking at pictures of my son too and sometimes wonder where did that little guy go?
Parenting can be hard sometimes but putting an extra spice in it (ADHD or ADD) can make it even harder. My youngest struggles with ADD and it makes it very trying at times and often brings me to tears and wondering where did I fail but then I have to pull myself up and remember I'm parenting great, they have a brain that fires different then others. Not that the guilt train gets any lighter to push or pull. Hang in there sister!

Thanks everyone. I miss having a little one who wouldn't mind smiling and having their picture taken...


Teena- I'm sorry you felt sad looking at pictures. I hope you find one that makes you smile...
