Crap. It's Picture Day.

You know those school-picture-day mornings when you happen to forget that it’s picture day, and you sleep in because you also forget that daughter #1 has choir practice an hour BEFORE school starts, and said daughter refuses to wear anything except the outfit that has a hole in it that you meant to mend weeks ago, so you whip out your sewing machine and fix it right that second, while she shovels down breakfast and brushes her teeth, before you race to curl hair, sign homework books, track down a matching pair of shoes that were hiding out inside a backpack, fill out the picture order forms, and realize as you’re dropping her off at school that you haven’t brushed your own hair or even thrown on a bra? Yep. Today was that day.
Where do I sign up for Mom of the Year?

Cumorah, you just spoke to the depths of my heart. This is exactly what I went through yesterday (okay, not every detail), but seriously! Love your honesty and feel your pain!

I admire the fact that you have a sewing machine and whipped it out on the spot. I couldn't do that. I will nominate you this DO deserve it!
