Sunday Funnies

Ever since Mr. Serious has been born, I’ve been saying he reminds me of someone. It’s been bugging me that I can’t figure out who it is. Today as he was doing what he does best in the swing, daddy called me over with his iphone in hand saying “you know who he looks like?” and shows me this:

Not exactly who I had in mind but definitely gave me a good laugh.
In case you’re wondering, here’s what I saw when daddy put the phone next to the munchkin:
 I actually think this might be a more accurate comparison (minus the pursed lips) to Sir Churchill:
 Okay, but why am I trying so hard to make my child resemble a 70+ year old man, albeit a respected, distinguished old man, anyway??? 
Note to self: Need. to. get. out. of. the. house…
Don’t hate me little guy when you see these one day. It’s your mom’s desperate (& a tad pathetic) need for some entertainment after being knocked down (quite literally) like a 1-2 punch by a horrid breast infection followed by a breakout in lovely cold sores. From high fevers, aching from head to every toe joint, nausea and fatigue to swollen glands, sore throat, headache and nasty blisters covering my face that make me feel like a leper, it’s been a rough couple of days. And for what I’ve gone through, I think I’ve earned it.

  1. You are just as mean as me. Our kids are going to be SO embarassed some day!

    PS I didnt know about the blisters and cold sores. UGH you poor poor thing!!!

  2. You've earned much more than you'll ever receive in the short run. I know your rewards sometimes come in small dosages, but they arrive early each morning and are as consistent and regular as the sun rising. When all added up in years to come, the rewards far outweight the sacrifices, as I'm sure you already know. I commend you on your ability to "grin and bear it" with style, dignity, humility and the all important sense of humor. I'm sure Soren will laugh a belly laugh when he is old enough to appreciate these hilarious pictures. Keep 'em comin'. Love you, Dad
