Before and After



Here's a quick peek at the results of Thing 1 and 2's hair cuts this past week. At almost age three, it was Thing 2's first real hair cut, and Thing 1's most monumental hair cut (due to the sheer volume of hair on the floor).

I apologize for not having been a diligent blogger recently. Real life has hit me hard, along with the harsh realization that I am not supermom, nor am I anything that remotely resembles her. I cannot do it all. I have had a full plate lately and have - in all honesty - been completely and utterly overwhelmed. I am trying to re-prioritize my life so I can become a better mother, wife, woman, sister, daughter, and friend. Hang in there, I promise to be back this week with updates on our trip to Toronto, our big visit with cousins R & H . . . and for good measure I just might throw in a personal glimpse at two little Things who both started school this week.

p.s. Thanks to the number of you who called/e-mailed to check to see if I still had a pulse :-)

Glad to hear that you are ok. And, I get it. The idea that we do still have to have a life, and sometimes blogging is the thing to go. :)

And the Things haircuts are awesome. They look so cute Shannon. :)

Totally understand about the re-prioritizing. Supermom is a myth! Hope you find the balance you are looking for, but I do hope you keep blogging (at least a little). :)

Love the new haircuts!

The boys look so grown up with their new haircuts! Can't wait to see them and hear all about school.

Blue stripy socks have been started for Thing 2!

Glad to hear that you are ok. I was starting to wonder about you.
I hope that you are starting to feel less overwhelmed.

Isn't it amazing how something like a simple haircut can change how our kids look so much? They look adorable! And, I must say, a bit less mischevious than the first picture, though I'm sure they still act it.

Love the new do's! Hope life's getting less hectic for you:)

NO ONE is supermom, hon. At least, not without some other important life 'things' getting neglected. And we all love you the same, anyway. :) (HUG)

LOVE the boys' cuts! Adorable!!

OMG! It's amazing how one haircut can make a little boy look suddenly so much bigger! Glad to hear you're doing better. Can't wait to hear more about your summer.

Hi Shannon!

I too have had to step back from the blogosphere. I am drained, and just cannot find inspiration to write these days... take the time you need for YOU!

Boys are adorable. And indeed, a hair cut makes them look so grown up!

Gosh, I have been wondering 'what's up', glad to see you alive.

I'm happy that you've joined the dark side of realizing we can't be supermoms, that it just makes life sucky.

The haircuts are cute and the tub ain't bad either :)
