Parents, if you want wonderful pictures of your children, never teach them to say "cheese"! Please learn from my mistake or you will have thousands of photos just like mine - squinted eyes, scrunched up noses, clenched teeth, and an image that just screams "say cheez!!!". Join me while I search for that one perfect shot that doesn't conjure up images of dairy products. Oh, and unless you like that *messy* look, you'll probably want to clean their faces before you snap away. I never seem to remember myself.

An imporant sidenote is to make sure you document your life! Recording the little details of the who, what, where, when, & why makes for wonderful stories and captures your life for years to come. Because if you are like me, you'll forget it all 5 minutes later!

POTD - Meet Princess Tea

My daughter loves to have tea parties. She invites Kitty, Bear, Flounder, and Baby (not quite original with the names yet). Of coarse I am invited as well and she insists that I call her "Princess Tea". My name is "just momma". We eat crackers that she collects from under the bed or sometimes just magically appear from thin air. We drink tea that pours out of the knobs on the dresser. Occasionally we have some apples freshly picked from the tree in the middle of her room. It is a rule that we must always clink cups and say "cheers" before we sip our tea. And story time is an integral part of our tea parties. These days she prefers to read silently to herself and no one can speak until she has finished "reading". My daughter is quite the princess!
