Wordless Wednesday Explained
A family birthday party last Saturday.
We were leaving b/c it was naptime for the boys.
My younger brother Justin helped us carry stuff to the car.
(Because you know that even a three-hour family party right down the road means that you have to bring the kitchen sink when you have kids.)
Justin leaned in before I shut the door and gave me a hug.
Because he's sweet like that.
My mom in the backseat of the van, always the paparazzi, told Justin to lean in again so that she could capture that moment on camera.
We groaned and complained but relented and hugged again.
Because we obey our mother like that.
But then a fly started attacking our faces and getting all up in our personal space just as Mom took the picture.
All the while, I still had food in my teeth.
(Which Justin photoshopped out when he posted it on Facebook.)
I don't have a clue how to photoshop.
(Or if I'm supposed to capitalize it.)
But I'd almost rather leave it there and make fun of myself.
(Because that's healthy sometimes.)
