The cynical crayon

I'm Cynical,mostly facetious,always bespectacled & hilarious. This where I chronicle the trials and tribulations of life as a stay at home mom.

OK lets not oversell, my friends think that I'm funny; Is that like having your mom say you're pretty?

My daughter was almost 15 months old in this picture. 

Now she is getting ready for kindergarten. 

How did this happen so quickly?

Another picture of our furry friend. The kids have named her Patra.

My daughter loves to swim, in our backyard pool.

But when we go to swimming lessons, she starts to act the fool!

She is good in the water, but there is room for improvement. 

Because as of now, kicking and screaming have become her trademark movements.

She stomps her feet and pouts, followed by lots of tears.

Meanwhile the other kids probably want to block their ears. 

I’m not ready to give up, despite my reservations. 

Hopefully by next session, the tantrums take a permanent vacation. 

These were once Beige…
