Who's the boss?

To start at the beginning, I'm married to one of the best men around!  I hear stories from friends and friends of friends and am thankful each day that I have such a great best friend to share my life with and to help raise our family.  I like to think that we're a partnership in parenting and love that Anna has big eyes for her Daddy.  Before I went back to work after my first maternity leave we talked and decided that I would spend time with Anna in the morning through breakfast and getting ready for school, but Mike would take her so that I could get to work a little earlier, leave a little earlier and handle pick-up.  This isn't set in stone and we play it by ear on days Mike is out of town or has early meetings, same with pick-up.  Long story short, here are a few pictures of why Mike is SO MUCH better at corralling our little Miss in the mornings.  Part of the reason is because I'm pregnant and it literally takes more effort to chase / convince Anna that clothing and school are a great idea, partly because I cherish every minute with her, but mostly because I'm a sucker for a good (and embarrassing) photo opportunity.

And she's off!
Clearly I've lost all control in my own home ...
Still pushing the limits after I managed to wrestle her into wearing clothing and putting on a coat : )
