The Best Things in Life are...

Not always free... but our kids now :)... they're worth every penny!! I was just looking at the estimated figures for raising a child and stopped since it made me choke. But I have to say... as we get older I think our priorities change. I know mine have changed much more than I ever thought they could. We realize what really matters to us and what doesn't anymore (at least for the time being). And then as we get even older, I'm certain those priorities will change again and again. 
And so... we have, ever evolving priorities. Today while the little people nap-- my immediate priorities are laundry, organizing my unbelievably cluttered desk, getting tax stuff together and returning some phone calls. When the priorities are really fun like these, I like to procrastinate! Not that I have time to-- but I'm a work in progress :)



John says he looks like a little French boy in this pic.

I love your photos! You are so right, priorities do change. I am currently procrastinating too, laundry (especially so much) does not sound like a whole lot of fun right now :)

There are times you just so want a pause button... to actually enjoy all the moments with those little people! Our priorities change daily in this house... depending on what drink spills, what shirt is stained, who ate the last box of Mac&Cheese, etc. :)
