I am feeling guilty about two things today.
1) This afternoon I was carrying Emma down the hall. I was thinking about something else and I banged her poor little head right into the corner of our bookshelf. She bled for awhile, but took the whole thing like a champ. I still felt terrible.

2) Steve went to the grocery store with us the other night and, consequently, we ended up purchasing a bunch of junky crap that I would never buy otherwise. This morning Emma saw the Lucky Charms on the fridge, and I was too lazy to talk her out of them, so that's what she ate for breakfast. I might as well have just given her a bowl full of sugar, preservatives, and dyes. Normally when she wants a snack, she asks for black beans or some kind of fruit. Ever since she ate those darn Lucky Charms, she's only been asking for more of that "pretty cereal".

I want to learn about photography. Every time I start to read books about it, it just seems like a whole lot of trouble and, honestly, really uninteresting reading material. I've been trying to mess around with shutter speed, aperture, and some other stuff on my own camera to get better pictures, but I really have no clue what I'm doing. That's my goal for the next few months - beefing up my photography skills. It's too bad there probably aren't any classes that are child-friendly.

Hopefully I didn't bore you to tears with this incredibly dull post.

I've done that before, been carrying a baby/toddler/child only to take a corner too sharp or have them shift or lean at the wrong time and whack into a wall or doorway or something :-( Sorry Emma!

And I have ALWAYS wanted to learn about photography too. It is my secret (well not so secret) dream to purchase a digital SLR camera and learn to really really play with it. Seems like such a steep learning curve though, and who has the time or money, sigh....someday maybe.

Well, could we have some pictures? Think of all the moms who feed their kids Lucky Charms and don't even feel guilty!

Have enjoyed your knitting stories looks hard to do.
As for Emma being afraid of snakes it really won't harm her to be.
The Lucky charms are not for the birds I threw some out in the dead of winter and they layed on top of the snow and the birds came and left not eating them.
