Where are the prizes?: I have upload prizes onto flickr (set called: Anything Goes in August).

Many of you asked how I manage to work @ home and parent a two year old. Well let me tell you, it ain’t easy!

Georgia has been especially grumpy the last few days. She has two back molars that have cut about 1/2 way through her gums. She’s in misery mode …

Georgia Appaman Bulldog Tee
After a sleepless night and a grumpy morning, I decided I wasn’t getting any work done, so off to the park we went. (Check out this cute Appaman stuff on my site – made famous by Angelia Jolie and Maddox).

Georgia Appaman Deisel Jacket
She wasn’t really thrilled about getting ready to go (this jacket is Appaman too).

Georgia Appaman Jacket
She wasn’t happy about getting in the van.

Nor did she want her picture taken.

Georgia - this might be a long trip.
When we arrived, she wasn’t really up for a walk.

Georgia - I'm not going any further.
In fact, a couple of times she refused to go any further.

Georgia and Flowers
For a minute, I thought even the flowers weren’t going to brighten her day!

Georgia smells the flowers
Oops! Hang on a minute, she’s going in for a closer look.

Georgia & MK - a walk in the park.
All’s well that ends well!

    Great photos! Poor Georgia – molars SUCK. Have fun meeting JenB! I’m envious :)

  • Hannah August 16, 2007, 10:12 pm

    I like how your photos tell the story so well. She sounds like my 2-year-old!! And I have to work with him around some days so I know what that’s like as well!

  • Ness August 16, 2007, 10:13 pm

    Love all you pictures. The bulldog shirt is great. My husband told me I need to get 3 of them for our kids to take pictures in for Christmas.

  • Diane August 16, 2007, 10:27 pm

    I feel your pain my 5 month old has been teething for a month already and my whole home is feeling the effects… hope your tooth comes quicker than mine has..

  • Cherylyn August 16, 2007, 10:55 pm

    Teething= uck! She’s still a cutie though!

  • glittersmama August 16, 2007, 11:11 pm

    I was wondering if we would ever see a picture of you. How about showing us the other side?

  • PamW August 16, 2007, 11:12 pm

    All your children have such beautiful porcelin skin. And Georgia is so gorgeous she reminds me of one of those collectors dolls! I hope she gets over the teething soon.

  • Michelle August 16, 2007, 11:26 pm

    Yeah teething sucks! We suffered through all of them except the molars which don’t seem to be bugging him – go figure??

  • Deanne S. August 16, 2007, 11:45 pm

    I can’t get over how white Georgia’s hair is! Cute skully shoes!

  • laura August 17, 2007, 12:01 am

    50mm 1.8. I should have known – that’s the one I’m putting on my Xmas list :)

  • Karyne August 17, 2007, 5:48 am

    Nice pictures! You look cute too!!! ;)

  • Marla August 17, 2007, 5:54 am

    When they’re sweet, they’re so sweet…but when they are miserable, oh man! My little guy has a cold and is driving me absolutely crazy, so I sympathize.

  • Joa August 17, 2007, 6:13 am

    Thank you for the info about your camera.

    D’où vient le bleu extraordinaire des yeux de vos enfants? Du jamais vu!

  • Christina August 17, 2007, 6:19 am

    Great pictures. She is stylin’ in that jacket.

  • Kait August 17, 2007, 7:10 am

    I wondered if we’d ever see you!

  • Jaime Stephens August 17, 2007, 8:03 am

    The Appaman shirts are great! Poor little thing… teething is the worst. Hopefully the finish coming in very soon!

  • Teresa August 17, 2007, 8:22 am

    Good luck with the molars! That can be a really hard time!

  • Alexia August 17, 2007, 8:27 am

    Georgia has such beautiful blue eyes! You should try an allspice necklace for her molars…it helps! I use them with both of my boys and their teeth come in alot faster and they don’t seem to be as cranky.

  • Montserrat August 17, 2007, 8:49 am

    I must say, you’re looking pretty chic your ownself!

  • Laura August 17, 2007, 8:58 am

    Ooooooh… molars.
    Not looking forward to those. My daughter has just finished cutting her eyeteeth and my little sweet girl is finally back after 4 weeks of hiatus.

  • Kathryn August 17, 2007, 9:06 am

    She’s SUCH a sweet looking little girl. Hard to believe she can EVER be miserable or uncooperative! LOL (I have one of those two, sweetlooking girl I mean!)..

  • Mimi August 17, 2007, 9:28 am

    My lill’ flower ismiserable this week too and I just hope these teeth will be out soon!!!

  • lace August 17, 2007, 9:29 am

    My niece who is 3 at times refuses to let me take her photo, and refuses to go out the door, and refuses to get in the car or step in the rocks (our driveway). But eventually (hopefully) the day gets a little better when we make it too our destination.

  • Bree August 17, 2007, 9:29 am

    oh yes, molars! if you havent already, try those teething tablets! They seem to make a difference with my kids! The shot of you two going over the bridge is cute!

  • Priya August 17, 2007, 9:36 am

    I have been following another canadian blog about gardening, its got great gardening tips and forums as well. Have a good lunch. MY daughter is also cutting her upper 2 teeth.Big Hugs to Georgia.

  • Mefeng August 17, 2007, 10:49 am

    My daughter hasn’t got molars yet, will come in soon. It might be miserable for Georgia. Hope she will be better soon. All photos are nice. Though she’s grumpy, still very cute. Also, great to see you the first time.

  • Charlotte August 17, 2007, 11:22 am

    I’m having the same problem with my son, except its his fangs coming in :) !!

  • Naomi August 17, 2007, 11:28 am

    Great jacket! Georgia is so pretty in red.

  • Corey August 17, 2007, 12:46 pm

  • Jamie August 17, 2007, 3:44 pm

    Looks like the park was a great choice after all:)

  • Danielle August 17, 2007, 5:06 pm

    This was my first time to your site. You take really great pictures and tell the story very well! How do you do it all with 4 kids? I am due in Sept w/ my 2nd and I’m already wondering just how I’m going to do it. I’m impressed!

  • serina August 17, 2007, 5:53 pm

    So cute! Great photos.

  • Safire August 17, 2007, 6:29 pm

    Great photos! I love how bright their eyes are. Hope you enjoyed the park. :)

  • Ness August 17, 2007, 8:12 pm

    Waiting to see how Hayley’s trip is going!

  • alison August 17, 2007, 9:54 pm

    It’s funny, in the really not so funny sort of way, how something as small as a baby molar can make for months of grumpiness. Glad ths flowers were able to cheer your sweet little girl.

  • jenB August 18, 2007, 12:59 am

    I ordered two appaman shirts for Charlotte. I LOVE the line. I want the jacket too, but must remain within our faux budget.

    You do have an excellent ass and lovely long legs. Today, I found out you are also beautiful in EVERY way!

  • Dione August 21, 2007, 9:43 pm

    Love the pics! What a fun way to spend the day!
