In the weeds.

That's restaurant lingo for saying "I'm swamped."
"I'm overwhelmed."
"I have too much to do and can't get to it all."

And today I'm in the weeds.
Just got back late last night from a trip.

It involved an ipod, lots of singing High School Musical songs at the top of our lungs,


gorgeous Kansas farm scenery,


a good 3 hours or so of a screaming 2 year old with a filthy face,


and the tiniest baby I've ever seen with an Elvis wig on.



I'll share more soon, but for now I'm off to return emails and ship orders before my buyers start knocking on my door demanding their products.

the crying face made me smile...only because we have that way too often and for once it was not my crying child i was looking at, so much cuter when it's someone else's child crying :) hope you can "wack" your way out of the weeds...(i liked that since i get "in the weeds" quite often being a server :)

Awww...what a cute baby! I love roadtrips, but it's been a while since I've done one with children.

Oh, no - adorable new-born photos. Hubby had better be prepared - I'm coming after #5!

I think the best advice to other moms is to take a picture of their child when they are at their WORST. Love the crying shot. I have an album of pictures of my kids on the ground at Disneyland crying (yeah. You dont see THAT in their commercials!)

happy monday!

Oh my Lord, that baby!! Cuuute!
Funny how they seem to go from sweet, cuddly babies to screaming two year olds almost overnight. :D

Good luck finding your way out of the 'weeds' today.

Ha! "In the weeds" I haven't heard that for 10 years...yes, I am a proud former server of Chili's, Steak and Ale and lastly Rainforest Cafe at Animal Kingdom....anyhoo...I LOVE when babies have hair like that and I wished any one of my kids would...alas it wasn't meant to be, oh well!

'In the weeds' is a new one on me. We would just go cry in dry storage until someone found us and asked what we needed. Then we would sob 'Two pepsis to table 27' and get back to work.

I'll have to work this in to my vocab somehow.

You may need a weed wacker to get out hA!!! Little boy is so cute. I know you probably can't imagine this but one day you will miss that moment!! hA!!!

Christina said...

You are too funny...that was the real deal, huh? At least you were not on an airplane with a screaming 2 year old...that is no fun. Not that in your car is fun, but at least there is no one else around to cast sideways, over-the-shoulder, nasty looks at you because you were disturbing their lovely little airspace. :)
