I posted this on my personal blog, and thought I would share it with you. 

All I wanted for Mother’s Day was a picture with my kids. 

Well, as you can see they had other plans. 

Hannah decided to throw a tantrum.

Charlie was laughing at his sister.

And I am clenching my teeth and silently yelling at Brandon to take the damn picture. 

When I was going through the pictures, I was kind of disappointed that they didn’t turn out better.  

I then realized that:

This is real life. 

My life.

I may not have a perfect life, but I have the life I always wanted.
