We interrupt our regularly scheduled programming to bring you this little gem....
The picture below was posted on my old collage buddy's facebook wall. It's of his friend's niece and nephew. We're re-posting it here with permission. My friend wrote:
This is a real picture of my buddy's niece and nephew years ago. I dare anyone to present a more amazingly perfect Santa/Christmas picture. Then entire experience of holidays stress, having toddlers and babies, indoor/outdoor environments requiring too many clothes changes, too many people, too much waiting, and all the constant work to make memories are all encapsulated in this gift of a split second.
Spend some time looking at it, then go away, then look at it some more, then look at each kid individually for 10 whole seconds, only then quickly shift to Santa's face.
I can't get over the baby. And his sister making a break for it. But the baby. In his Christmas sweater. Clearly screaming "F-THIIIIIIIIIIISSSSS" in baby-talk.
And there are really no words for Santa's face. No. Words. (His eyes!!! OMG! Look at his eyes!! LOLOL)
Happy Holidays, Mamas.
