There are times, when my children are particularly challenging, when I need to take a walk down memory lane...back to a time/ place when they didn't both think I was the most embarrassing, least cool human God ever created! Old pictures are the perfect partner for that kind of stroll. I came across these, which were taken 3 summers ago, during a business trip my ex-husband took us on, to a gorgeous resort in New Hampshire. We hadn't planned on accompanying him, which made the adventure all the more enjoyable. While he was busily presenting at the seminars, the kids and I had a wonderful time exploring the quaint, little resort village and taking a ride on a paddle boat. The ride came to a screeching halt when my daughter pointed out all of the funny black "fish" stuck to the side of our boat....leeches! At that moment, I lost all sense of reason and didn't CARE that they couldn't/ wouldn't possibly gnaw through the side of our aluminum carrier. I was going to walk on water (with or without children in tow) to escape this scene out of a Stephen King novel. EWWW! The picture was, obviously, taken BEFORE the slimy, slug sighting.
See? The images of that "look" of disgust my angels sometimes have when I enter a room has been replaced with....oh boy. Back to digging through old photographs!
