Proof I really have children

Since it was pointed out recently that, as a supposed parent blogger, I should make sure to at least occasionally include pictures of the kids, I figured I would take the opportunity to come at this Monday like the office drone I used to be: by spacing out and phoning it in.

So here, to help you exercise your cuteness-detecting glands, is a quick sampling of what my kids look like right now, at (freshly) 5 and 2:

Looks like I'm interruptingApparently I broke up some kind of high-powered meeting of executives in the business of making mischief in the house. The one on the right looks offended, but the one on the left looks like he's about to break out some faux-pirate violence.


Barely able to keep it together till the flashMy son D- is still at an age where he loves hugging and kissing his sister, though not always on her exact schedule. Also, he hasn't yet learned that he should have told her NOT to stand still for a second while Daddy gets a picture.


WLUW Chicago t-shirtM- with her hair in her face, where it usually is, on a day when she was kind enough to stop making noise for five seconds to let me document how big she's gotten, and what she looks like on a day when Daddy was in too big a hurry to get her dressed.

I'm suddenly hearing the line: "I'm a real live boy!"

I was starting to wonder if they might just be wooden puppets!

Too funny. When I saw that first photo, I recognized the Pirate face instantly!

Welcome to age 5, where your son becomes the superhero of his dreams... even when he's awake!

Dewd. Your kids look like my nephews. Except, your daughter looks like a girl, or whatever.

Ashley D said...

OMG, M- looks sooo much like J-!!! Wow, I miss you all!

She put that outfit together? I think she did really well. She looks better than my 10 year old daughter, who is always in such a hurry that she grabs the first two pieces of clothes no matter how much they don't match.
