Here’s proof that sometimes people only put stuff on Facebook that makes it seem like they lead a perfect life.
Today I put both kids in the kiddie pool at the same time, for the first time. I posted a picture of them playing together perfectly. Now everyone in Facebook world will think, “Wow, they had a perfect afternoon.”
Now, here’s what really happened.
|Playing nicely …|
|Mommy takes a picture to post on Facebook …|
|By now I’m texting Husband to tell him how much fun we’re having …|
|TWO really loves water …|
|Aaaaand … things go bad.|
I was trying to get a good picture of the baby looking over the edge of the pool into the grass and before I knew what was happening he toppled out and landed. On his face. On a pine cone. THANKFULLY, the pine cone was old and soggy … otherwise we’d be at the emergency room right now. I think the camera must have clicked just as I was leaping out of my chair.
No one I know has a perfect life. I originally had a lot more to say about this, really wise things, but the baby just busted his face again — this time on his high chair — and my oldest is now clamoring for food.
My hair is still orange.
There’s no perfection here.
