There are many, many times I think back to a moment in my chaotic day and think, I wish I would have taken a picture.
My life isn't perfect, although I would like my blog readers to think so. Sometimes, rarely, but it happens, my children wear ragged, dirty clothes. I don't take pictures of that. Sometimes (OK, most of the time) my house is not neat and clean. I don't take pictures of that either. And if I do, I photoshop their clothing and my house until it is clean and neat. It works better than spray n' wash.
But sometimes, I should just take pictures. Let the dirty house go. Let it go that I have an umbrella, a rubber glove, and 5 bowls of kitten food on my deck. Get over Emma's strange original outfit #4 for the day and "pretty" hair thing. Get over Mandy's unbuttoned onsie and fly away hair and take the pictures that say, this is my real perfect life.
