There isn’t much going on here right now, besides just life. Busy, messy, noisy, imperfect life.
There are no more babies coming, no super exciting new announcements or changes.
Babies are getting older. Kids are learning new things.
Most surfaces are sticky at least 73% of the time.
There is nothing picture perfect about mismatched socks and eating lunch on the floor.
These weirdos are in some sort of contest to see who drives me to break open a bottle of wine before 5 pm.
But they’re my weirdos.
And every day I’m reminded that someday they’ll be real people who are supposed to go out into the world and have their own lives.
(Seriously, buddy, I won’t be wiping your butt forever.)
And I just hope that until then I can remember that this too shall pass. The bad stuff and the good stuff. So things like Caroline’s 400 scraps of paper everywhere…
…and the crayon scribbles on every surface…
…and tiny fingers stuck into the sour cream while I’m making dinner are all going to be over way, way too soon.
I started this blog as mostly just words and more words and more words. I thought that was the best the way to document how I felt about my new life as a mother. But these days there aren’t any words. Or maybe there are too many words and I just don’t have time to find the right ones. There are SO MANY words in my daily life that I need something bigger to show, not tell, future me about these days I am sure I won’t remember. I’m so thankful I found photography.
