How not to make your child happy.

Yay!  Ellie is home!  Let's go have a really fun morning.

Wait.  Scratch that.  Let's do this instead.  Here is how NOT to make your child happy.

Step 1: Take child to watch first marathon and cheer on local pastor running the full and his wife running the half.  Be confused about race course.  Get start time wrong, so as to not need to know what the course looks like anyway.

Step 2: Decide to go to see the cherry blossoms.  Bundle child.  Take child out in 35 degree weather.  Let said child express that she does not like 35 degree weather, just like her mommy.

Step 3: Make sure child is extra gassy.

Step 4: Be ready to enter not one, but two photo contests with photos of cute child.  Take well-focused, beautiful photos of child screaming.  Decide to post photos on blog rather than waste everyone's time entering photos in contest.

(so pretty)

(Don't you think I should enter this one?)

(My bundled up bundle of joy.  Or some emotion.)
When it's all over, take child home, warm her up, snuggle her, and take her to have cake for a one year old's birthday.  Have friends over that evening to snuggle her, somewhat redeeming the day!
Pin It!
