Awhile back a friend of mine made a comment that if he didn't know me and were just going by my photos on facebook he would think that all I do is run.
And though it does feel that way at times (especially while training for a marathon in a horrid Boston winter and a 50k immediately after that), I swear there is a lot more that I do than run..... or perhaps there isn't...
But it's just that documenting the daily in's and out's of my life is usually not very post worthy. I told him no one would want to see pictures of the things I do all day.
And just to prove my point I decided to document some of the daily things I deal with and do.
What a typical day/week is full of in my day to day life:
Poopy diapers...so many that often times I can hardly keep up with the diaper pail that fills up so fast
Unexpected, unimaginable, and unacceptable messes (yes that is poo in my bed)
Picking up toys 100 times a day
Tired/Irritable children at the worst time of day - when I'm also tired/exhausted and trying to make dinner
Sick kids up all night; cleaning up throw up/diarrhea/boogers, stuffy noses, bringing water, bathroom trips/etc.
Did I mention crying?
I don't think my children enjoyed me running for a camera at the most in-opportune times. I guess we take pictures of mostly just the good stuff for a reason - and even some of those good moments are hard to always capture.
Some people think blogs are just for "bragging." Well maybe for some it is, but for me, I just want to remember the good times a bit more than some of the above. I love my kids but I really could do without some of the aforementioned - and I'm sure some of the images may leave you haunted for awhile yourself.
Guess I'll stick to running pictures and a few other fun events for the time being, if it's ok with you!
