Carson's school pictures came home on Friday.
I need to remember that 9 year old boys really could care less how their hair looks. We're lucky if he combs out the bed head before leaving for school. By the middle of the morning, he's run around so much that the sweat weighs down the crazy hair (gross, but true).
Next year I'll try and remember to have his hair cut before school pictures.
PATIENCE UPDATE: It was enlightening! I now have a new respect for those individuals who I would classify as having a patient nature. The kids did comment that I didn't yell as much (proud parenting moment there). We were all a little stir crazy by the end of the day. The new water heater wasn't installed until 4:30 so it was a day of just waiting around and bored kids.
Today's task...practice kindness. Phew, that sounds easier than patience, doesn't it?!?
