I don't want to be one of those annoying people that posts pictures of their kids and all they can talk about is their kids. Unfortunately, I think I am becoming one of those people.  Whenever proud mothers send me a photo of their child saying their ABC's or jumping in a puddle or putting on sunglasses and I feel forced into saying, "Oh, that is sooo cute," (with the drawn out soooo for emphasis).  When secretly I think, "Hello. Your kid put on big sunglasses. Why is that so funny? It's not. Everyone knows their ABC's so I don't understand why you felt the need to record it."

Well. I looked on my phone and realized yesterday that I have multiple pics of Liv and Grace in sunglasses and I sent Liv saying her ABC's to at least 10 people.  As soon as I looked at it I thought, "What have I done? I have become what I have mocked for years."   We went to the park the other day that was crawling with children. I thought, "Sheesh am I glad that the two most darling children here are mine. Someone seriously needs to wipe that little boy's nose and why is that annoying girl screaming so loud?"  Then I realized that everyone feels about their kids the way I feel about mine. It's called parent vision. It's like motherhood lasik where you see you kids completely different than any other and when they say their ABC's, it's like the first time you've ever heard the letter W said so cute and you are convinced that they are going to Harvard on a scholarship.  I promised myself I would never get motherhood lasik and be completely objective about my children but I can't. My girls are the cutest companions I could ever want to hang out with all day. If you don't believe me, I'll send you a trillion photos and video clips to prove it...
