Mommy & Me: The Pile


Mommy and Me Monday at Really, Are You Serious?
Hosted by Krystyn


I'm not really much of a meme person.  Memer. Memer-er.

Or whatever you call it.

But I did like this idea, which I stumbled upon over at Really, Are you Serious?  (which is a fun and fabulous blog, by the way).  Basically, you're supposed to take a picture of you and your child(ren) every Monday so you can prove to them one day that you did in fact participate in their lives. 

So tonight I had Scott take pictures of what I like to call "The Pile."  Basically, this is what the kids and I do every night after I come home from work.  I sit on the couch, and then they sit on me.  It may not be the most exciting activity in the world, but it works for us.  Or I should say it works for them.  As the sat upon, I really have no say in the matter.

They totally love me.  How could they not when I snuggle with them and make silly faces all evening?

Either that or they just think I'm really squishy.

What an awesome tradition. I'm usually on the other end of that. After work, I get my kids and get home and get dinner cooking while they tell me they are hungry with words or squeals, and I try to cook with them under my feet. Then, daddy walks in the door and all is right with the world.

Needless to say, I would love to be under the pile of excited to see me kiddos. It looks like you all are having a blast.

Thanks for being a non-meming, memer! I love the silly faces, too (my three year old is all about the silly faces right now)!
