Perfectly Imperfect

Have you ever been under the impression that my life is perfect? I hope not. I don't think I have been 'shooting sunshines' out of my blog posts all the time. Maybe I don't really blog about the bad not-so-good stuff, but they're here, there and everywhere in my life. :)LOL.

My girls are not angels. Far from it.



See that mark near Neha's eyebrow? Yes, that one. Nidhi threw water gun at her when we were at the pool last Saturday. What really happened? I have no idea. Nidhi got an earful though. We are just relieved the water gun didn't hit the eye and it needed no stitches. Angels? Definitely not.



And Neha, more often than not, will be the person who makes her cry. She's the teaser, the annoy-er, the irritater, the provoker. Heh. Angels? Definitely not.

But all I wanna do, is to give them wings.

What the caterpillar calls the end of the world, the master calls a butterfly - Richard Bach.

Lots of Homefront. Get yours while you still can.

I'm supposed to be in Phuket by now, but some passports expiry dates were overlooked and here we are. (told you my life is not all smiles) Mr Husband managed to get the extension, and we're getting on a later flight today. I didn't freak out when we were refused check-in this morning and I am so damn proud of myself. Sad, yes, but no freak-outs. Yay me!

We came back home, I napped while Mr.Husband took the kids to the Immigration Office. He settled everything, we went out for lunch and a movie - Killers ~ Ashton Kutcher *Yum*, and had a good laugh. :)

Now we're home again, waiting for time to leave for the airport and I really hope we'll make it to our hotel in Phuket by bedtime. :)) I'm so looking forward to some lazy lazy days, well, except the morning of Sunday the 13th - beloved Mr Husband is running Laguna Phuket Marathon!

Wish us luck!

Your story makes your layout all the more meaningful! And the layout is totally beautiful! I love the butterfly and how you used the homefront line!

Ohhh, isn't that all we mothers want? To give our kiddos wings?! And do we really want them to be perfect? I don't! :)

Love what you've written about your life and your kids - I have the same problem with my kids, but with my life, I have a lot to learn from you. :) Beautiful layout as always, and thanks so much for your words of encouragement which you've recently written on my blog - I'm blessed to have a good friend in you. :))

I love this post, and your layout. And your blog!
I really came by to tell you I was inspired by a layout of yours in Elizabeth Kartchner's book. Here's my take on it: http://wickysticket.blogspot.com/2010/06/ok-so-lets-see-what-we-have-here.html
