Last night I was cleaning out the files on my phone when I discovered this picture; taken last summer. I love this picture 1) because it’s a picture of Jonathan and Samantha, my two youngest kids, and 2) because it depicts a moment in time when said kids are not fighting.
In fact, I love it so much that it is now the background picture on my Blackberry. Now, whenever I pick up my phone I’m reminded that there are times when my kids actually do get along (also known as true zen moments).
This morning at breakfast I showed them the picture. Jonathan just sort of grunted in acknowledgement. Obviously bored. (If it had been a picture of his pet turtle riding a skateboard, now THAT would have been interesting!)
Samantha, on the other hand was devastated.
“Oh my GOD!!! What am I wearing?!!”
Obviously, her 2010 summer wardrobe was sooooo last year.
