The Tally – Updated

3 new bug bites (one giant welt on the calf, one ordinary bump front and center on the forehead)
7 new scratches on hands and wrists from the neighbors’ cat
2 scraped knees
1 nearly healed scrape under right eyebrow
5 scratches from sharp toddler fingernails (on Mama’s face)

Can you tell we have a portrait appointment today at 2:00 pm?

Update: And one hella lump over the right eyebrow from a fall after dinner in which head met furniture with a loud crack. I am a horrible mother, because my first thought after seeing that she was not gravely wounded was “Thank God this happened AFTER the photos!”



  1. the photos are great!
    Nat looks so tall and beautiful.

  2. Here’s CJ, right after we took pictures :o) He also sheared off the end of his nose a couple of times on the concrete, always right after a portrait sitting. Some kids just have that knack.

    The good mothers always check for concussion before being grateful for decent pictures (Cute!). That’s how you tell the difference. Glad she’s okay.
