Goodbye Is The Saddest Word

Yesterday wasn't the easiest day. It marked Alex's official last day at the sitter he's had for pretty much the last 10 years. We didn't know up until this week if he'd be able to go back when I went back to work, the original plan was for me to accomodate the other parents relocating their children where I'm still on leave. However the stars and moons have not aligned and Alex won't be able to go back (thanks province of new brunswick) when I go back to work in April. Now begins the daunting task of finding him somewhere to go! Who wants to occupy a slot for a kid for three sole months? It's one of those times I really wish we had some family closer. I haven't been getting much help from the other adult in this house with regards to the matter which is even more frustrating. Why it always has to be me to sacrafice my career and vacation time I don't know. I wish more men had great male role models like my dad.

The Many Faces of Lily

Last night I was talking to my mother about how long it takes us to get through a store when I have Lily in tow. I mean people stopped when I had Alex but Lily seems to attract ALOT of attention, which I don't understand. However my mother pointed out when I'm not looking some of the expressions she makes while shopping are priceless, so I thought I'd share some pictures of some I've been able to catch. This is actually quite difficult to do because she's a natural camera poser, the second she hears the shutter open she's usually starting at the camera. ;)
How you doin?
Big Smiles

Pucker up

The Gangster

Just too darn cute

I will only tolerate this for so long...
