here we are attempting to get some new scenery. i was thinking the brick wall and fence would be a nice background... but with my littles as the photographers we got all the yucky spike balls and dirt. i need to start rethinking my photo backgrounds. anyone in Fresno know of good places? i think i'll also start taking pics in the afternoon since this morning light is so harsh. thanks for bearing with me as i figure out how to use a real camera vs. instagram! haha
i am currently growing out my bangs and, oh man, it is tough. all i want to do is cut them again! this in between phase is killing me. have you ever had bangs? did you resort to headbands for 6 months, like i want to... or do you have a magic tip you can share!?!

UPDATE: i know last week my what we wore wednesday post was a little heavy and i wanted to give a little update. i am currently reading a book called "Parenting with Love & Logic" by Foster Cline & Jim Fay. the main principal behind it is to stop taking unnecessary control over your kids life and allow them to learn responsibility through natural consequences. being the natural control freak that i am, i really feel like this book is giving me some great practical tips on giving up control and giving them choices so they feel more in control.
anyway, things are getting better. slowly. but definitely better. i feel more patient, my heart is more calm. and i've seen both my kids work out problems for themselves and ask me for help with it's beyond them. its great to see them figure it out without me having to lecture them.
have you read it? did it work for you? i'm not done and still trying to decide whats best for our family, but so far i like it.
