1. Add concealer to your make-up routine.
I've never been into makeup. I know I should wear more, but I hate putting it on, and I hate having to wash it off at night. So you could pretty much attribute my few pieces of make-up to pure laziness. One item I haven't bought in probably over 10 years is concealer... that is, until last week. We had family photos and I needed to take drastic measures to cover the dark circles under my eyes. As much as I feel like a haggard mother, I'd rather not look like one.
2. Get used to the awkward-timing sharts. (is there ever really a good time though?)
Last Sunday at church, a sister was giving a beautiful spiritual lesson. She was filled with a few tears while sharing her testimony. There was a silence as she took a few moments to gather her emotions... and then it happened. As I held Linc over my shoulder, he ripped a loud one. I had a few sisters turn around and look back. I just avoided eye-contact, checked Lincoln's diaper so they were aware it was in fact him, grabbed the diaper bag and bolted for the door while biting my tongue from laughing. Will I ever not find a fart completely hilarious? I'm so immature.
Ryan and I teach Sunday school to the youth. One of the girls in our class loves to hold Lincoln and we're glad to have extra helping hands as we teach. She was holding him and feeding him a bottle during last weeks lesson on reverence (of all topics) when literally, mid-sentence, Ryan said "Look! Lincoln is holding the bottle by himself!" That's when I had to continue the interruption of the reverencelesson and say, "Time-out from the lesson! Everyone look how cute he is holding his own bottle!" Another first for him. We're so proud.
