This is still one of my all time favorite Instagram pictures: Clara being jealous of Burger’s bath, which he is definitely not enjoying.
That was way back in May, so we decided to capture this moment on film since Clara’s approach to Burger’s bathtime has transitioned from silent envy to encouraging camaraderie. She likes to try to boost his spirits by talking about how much she likes taking a bath (and washing her rear end, apparently). Oh, and forgive the terrible focus – or lack thereof – in this video. I’m still getting the hang of this new camera in video mode.
At the end that’s my Fran Drescher impression. “Oh Burgerrrr, you’re so grumpyyyy.”
I just discovered this old iPhone screenshot from a couple of months ago that cracked me up slash filled me with relief. I was texting Katie B about how nervous I was about all of the book signings that were coming up. Apparently I was so freaked out that I feared I might actually upchuck. And like the true friend that she is, she came up with a workable solution.
The good news is that I haven’t barfed on anyone yet. And the better news is that it means no photos of that have been posted. Everybody wins.
What makes you guys nervous? Do you have a sarcastic text friend who makes you feel better about your odd neurosis?
Just like we’re way behind on our monthly superlative post over on Young House Love, our round-up of the previous month’s Instagram photos has also fallen behind. Oops. So here’s a sampling of what our IG looked like in October… extremely late (just a few days before December rolls around). And if you’re not on Instgram yourself, you can always catch these pics in real time on Facebook & Twitter.
Sherry’s favorite of the month is the one featured first first in the grid above. It was Clara sporting her floofy, bear-eared winter hat… and a sundress. She actually pulled the hat out of a winter clothes bin herself and asked to wear it to school that week (we compromised and let her wear it in the car on the way there).
This is my favorite. A family portrait snapped by a stranger at the Richmond Folk Festival. I love so much about this. The bees. The bikes (okay, unicycles). The fact that we got this smiling picture of all of us on a single try. #smallmiracle
When asked her favorite, should we be surprised that Clara immediately said “donuts!” (which are from an expansion party of our favorite local fabric store) followed shortly by “rocks!” (which are actually pumpkin seeds).
So that was our October. What did yours look like? Can you even remember now that it’s almost December?
