Wake Up Call

Happy Best Shot Monday!

On most mornings when I am shuffling around, trying to get out of the house to start the daily rounds, my girls run ahead to decorate the car windows with messages and pictures.



I wanted to share this with you today because I found it especially charming!

So...what shot brightens your day?

Hey Mom! Happy Birthday. Hope you have a HAPPY day. : )

My best shot is from this weekend. We took Big J bowling for the first time. There's nothing cuter than a preschooler trying to push a heavy ball down the lane.

Sarah-Ji said...

Aww, your girls are too sweet! Of course, where I live, you'd need something sharper than a finger to leave a drawing on the car window in the morning. It's pretty icy over here!

Here's my post:
BSM: My Brown Eyed Girl

krystyn said...

That's awesome. Every once in a while the sun hits the backseat window just the right way and I can see little fingerprints... they're like subliminal smiles to me. :)

This shot made me giggle today:

Precious stuff.

Just wait til they're older...or maybe it's just boys...and draw butts or write not-nice notes to each other in the dew (or dust) of car windows. :)

Mandaroo said...

I'm never up early enough to see dew on the windows, but I have seen the frost on the roof behind us from my window! That's a cute capture! Kids love to draw on everything, huh? Well, I'm reallllly late on BSM, but some of you asked to see the after of Olivia's haircut, so I'm linking it anyway.
Happy belated Monday! : )

Juls said...

That is a real sweet routine. I love the cute drawing.

BTW, I put your BSM button on my blog too. Please let me know if you object - I will remove it if that is the case. I saw it on Zoot's and though you might not mind.

Juls said...

I almost forgot.
Here’s Mine

Kim said...

I love this.
I know that someday I will miss all the fingerprints, the dirty footprints and all the other reminders of childhood.
Thatnks for the lovely reminder.
