children do & say the darnest things

so, ignore my last post. i had a momentary lapse of insanity combined with the creative black hole that i've fallen into which sparked a hasty decision. things are definitely changing, however closing this space after contributing two years of our family's time without a back up plan was just plan dumb. sorry, about the confusion.

and to be perfectly honest, it was wonder boy and military man who brought me back. mm had the most disappointed look on his face and wonder boy did something yesterday that made me quickly change my mind. he was toting one of my cameras around his neck, just like his mommy, and looking for the beauty around him. he took me to the side and said, "mommy, can we look at these together and if they're good enough, can you put them on your blog?" {frozen mommy moment....i was rendered speechless} yes, i'm a sucker for the men in my life and become a spineless jelly fish when i disappoint them.

i didn't have the heart to tell him that i had ended it {momentarily} and that his work would not be displayed for everyone to see. he was just proud of himself at that moment. his little comment brought the realization of parents as role models to full fruition. they do what we do not what we say. we've heard the old addage so many times before...it's become cliché. however, it's simple message holds true.

for the longest time we've had toddlers in our household and parents out there can relate to this...we think that we can get away with our imperfections and flaws with nobody noticing, however, living with an eight year old things have changed. we are forming a pre-adolescent and we need to keep this in mind when we go about our day. maybe, that's the big change in our life that's been brewing without  me pinpointing it. i've noticied it, now, and keeping my finger on it.

well, there you have it a brief explanation on lizabee & co.'s resurrection. it took a boy and his mother's camera to bring it right back.
