A Little Bit of The Latest

March 24, 2014 By: Jenna Category: Personal

This is one of those weeks where I open up my calendar and to-do list and feel my heart begin to race as I see how much needs to be done. How do you manage your stress during those time periods? I have a playlist of songs with a fast beat that help me dance around and calm down a little bit. (I’m listening to Daft Punk by Pentatonix as I type this.) Why the escalating stress levels? It’s tax filing season, the time where I curse Jenna Cole and self-employment and wonder why I persist in working for myself (then I file and it’s all over and I love it again).

Also, this Thursday and Friday I’m doing preschool pictures for T1′s preschool. They have two locations, and 120 kids between all of the classes. I’m finalizing my paperwork and plans, and preparing to overdose on coffee so I can bounce around like a maniac for several hours trying to get kids to flash the perfect smile into my camera so their parents will feel they absolutely have to have the shots I present. This past weekend I assembled the backdrop supplement that I invented and I’m really excited about how it’s all going to come together. Here’s a little glimpse into what it’s going to look like, though the actual photos won’t be backlit by the sun, will have a gray backdrop, and won’t have kids with messy faces (I’m hiring someone specifically for messy face and hair patrol!).

“Is this right Brother? We put our hands up over our ears like this?”

She adores her brother and wants to be just like him. Laughs when he laughs. Runs when he runs. Screams when he screams.

One Quick Take

Our friend came over on Sunday and I told him he should bring his dog, so the kids could play with a pet. I had forgotten just how big his dog is though. From T2′s perspective he must look as big as a horse!

Blanket-fort building before popcorn and movie night this past Friday.
