The story behind the picture- circa 2005

In one of my church groups a few years ago, they wanted us to bring a picture of us with our family.....they wanted the picture to depict our actual life. Our dear neighbor, Pam, came over to the house to take a picture of our family eating dinner on a normal night. Well, little did Pam know what she was getting into.....

We filled our plates, said the blessing, and got ready to smile for the camera. Just as Pam was ready to take the picture, one of the dear children, well......passed a little gas.....and as the natural consequences happened to take over, (complete and utter belly laughter) she snapped the picture!! It was a moment to remember for sure!!!

Jill, I remember this picture! You also did a cooking demo for MOPS and showed this picture of your family. I remember you telling the story of how to get the good smiles. ;)

This same situation now happens alot in my house with my growing boys. And instead of reacting with discipline I try to remember the smile you had on your face. It simply was the smile of yes this is my life and I love it!

Thank you for sharing your picture and stories and also for teaching me how to be a parent to boys!
Love, Erin
