You need a reason, here's your reason (UPDATED)

A day hasn't gone by since I had my children that I have not smiled. Even in dark times, a child can bring the sunshine back. This is my promise to all you people that don't have kids yet. Ask any of your friends that have children, and they will tell you the same thing.

So no matter what I say or write about my kids needing a mute button, they are still the most important things on this earth to me, and the most perfect creation. Your child(ren) will always keep you young at heart. May it be a game of Shutes and Ladders or bug inspecting, the world is huge and brilliant to them; and if you just take a few minutes to see it through their eyes, you will know why it is all worth it.

This last picture is taken when I am about 5 months pregnant with Kenzie. Evan is about 6 months old, and Mason is almost 5. E and K are "Irish twins" according to my MIL. Apparently, Irish woman are always knocked up and have 2 kids a year, too. And Jay, I swear if you call me a whore, I will kick you.

I asked my parents. They said they'd smile again when I stopped taking all their money and get a real job like a real adult.

Your kids are super cute.

Aww, I was just teasing you last comment but so glad you wrote this post. Love the photos. Shoot, if your children put a smile on my face, I can wait to see what my very own will do for me. :)

Mishy: I think all this goes out the window once they start demanding my credit cards and money.

Random: I know you guys were kidding, but I thought this would help you along. Hugs right back!
