2010 was a great year and here’s why…a compilation of my favorite posts and photos from each month of the year.
Just seeing this post again brought back those heebie jeebies…and no. They have not had more babies.
My favorite January photo is this one, from a trip to Hawaii that I did not get to go on. Instead Pat went with strict instructions to take as many photos of his family as possible. I have to tell him to take as many as possible because three quarters of them come back like this:
While writing this I was looking for a serious pat on the back after surviving my first 100 days of a child at school. What about the parents!?!
My favorite photo is of my favorite little Valentine. Scrumptious he is.
My post about a mother’s guilt that just doesn’t go away.
My favorite photo is this picture of Laina making her way through a snow covered forest.
I wrote about why having babies is harder for me then it is for other people. Clearly.
My favorite photo is of our good friend Rudy the Labradoodle. We sure miss this guy!
I posted a video of Maile secretly making a vlog when she was supposed to be in bed. I died laughing when I actually listened to what she was saying!
It took years of “not caring”, but I finally made the The High School List and naturally had to write about it.
When you’re seven and your Dad dies it really sucks…but you’ll end up with posts you really like. So that’s good.
I loved touring my old neighborhood and writing about all the things that made me…me.
A post where my brother gave great advice to my nephew about girls.
I wonder if Pat regrets not appreciating me when I was single and childless and un-distracted. This poem I wrote perfectly captures that ironic twist in our relationship. Love you darling.
Ahhh, my sweet girl. Sometimes Laina just makes me all warm and happy on the inside. At the end of the day, these are the posts I enjoy re-reading.
I really should listen to her, but sometimes living simply is easier said than done…so I write about it instead.
And finally I love this picture of me and Kainoa because he’s a trouble maker, and I love him. I feel like it really captures his rambunctious spirit along with my hesitant face, like “oh geez, what are you going to do to me now?” How can you not love that face?
