Mondays with Mom
June 10, 2013
This summer I decided to stay home every Monday with Yuri and Harper. Oh sure, my editing to do list will inevitably grow to what will seem like an impossibility to accomplish but they will only be 4 and 6 once I figured. I already feel like they are growing much too fast. Often I tease them I want to put books on their heads so they will stop growing. They always giggle. Not only do I feel guilty being so busy but I’m always photographing everyone else’s magical moments. But not this summer. Every Monday, which I’ve decided to call “Mondays with Mom” I will spend the day doing things together and I will photograph it. It’s more for me – – a way to remember but I hope you’ll enjoy our journey, too.
The first Monday: I made pancakes from scratch in our old cast iron skillet, we had a creativity session with modeling clay and I even threw my Virgo tendencies to the wind and let them mix colors. They also got to stay in their pajamas until after lunch and I let them pick out their own outfits. (I wasn’t lying when I said I threw my Virgo tendencies to the wind!) We “popped some tags” at Goodwill, did a whole lot of snuggling and reading and went to the park where we played and explored nature. I even gave Yuri a photography lesson. The last two images are his.
“Life, love, and laughter – what priceless gifts to give our children.”
These are Yuri’s images. (Can I brag? Dang, he’s good!)
