Monday Musings

....Changing/dressing my toddler now resembles something you would see on Animal Planet, like alligator wrestling. It is a fight. EVERY.SINGLE.TIME. You would think I was seriously hurting her judging by the shrieks and screams. I don't get it. How can I make it more pleasant? My usual tricks don't work anymore. The only thing I've found useful is putting a youtube video on my iPhone while she holds it..but even that trick doesn't keep her still long. She is soon going to stick one of her flailing feet in a stinky diaper. And that will not be pleasant.

.....Speaking of above-mentioned toddler, her fingernails and toenails will soon resemble talons if she doesn't let me clip them. Basically, I have an active toddler who doesn't like sitting still for anything. I'm sure many of you can relate. Ugh.

.....I just signed up for an 8 week photography course that includes a field trip (even adults love field trips). I have had my Canon Rebel since the Fall and still only use the automatic setting. I am so looking forward to becoming more acquainted with the manual features and was thrilled to see this class offered through Main Line School Night.  It starts on March 6 and is every Thursday for 2 hours.

.....Our wedding count for this year is already at 7, and it's only the end of January. We will be flying to Georgia on February 24 to take part in the nuptials of Amy & Tyson. My bridesmaid dress was just delivered on Friday and it is a gorgeous Jim Hjelm floor-length gown. It is going to such a classy affair and i'm honored to stand beside her on her special day.

.....Thanks for all the support for "Fuck It Friday".  It has been a rough work week..very emotionally draining. Luckily I had the weekend to mentally recover and will hopefully have a more pleasant week.

.....Why am I just discovering Shellac manicures? Coming from me who picks off their nail polish in a few short is amazing. My nails looked great for almost 2 weeks. Now if I could just find a way to work it into our new monthly budget? Hmm.

Happy Monday ya'll.

We do the you tube video on the iphone too. It works. Sometimes. But other times? I feel like a zoo keeper wrestlig a wild animal.
