Over the past few weeks I've been asked the question, "So are you just taking care of the twins now?" or "So are you just a mommy now?" I kind of want to retort, "There's nothing JUST about it! It's a 24-hour, 7-day a week job!" I know they're saying it in reference to school, as in, I'm not being a mom and getting a PhD too. But still. Even though it's the best job in the world, being mom is also pretty difficult, oui?

Here's some pictures from this afternoon. They remind me of the fairy tale "Snow White and Rose Red." Josephine is so fair, and Millie's so rosy.


  1. Oh! Snow White and Rose Red! But of course.

  2. The "just" kills me. Mostly because I catch myself saying it sometimes.
