Or so she says...' and for that I am so grateful.
This month I edited a post for OSSS by Lindsay, who has her own blog, too. I was so excited for her post to go live because the topic resonated with me. I try to be diligent taking photos of the kids with my dSLR each month to capture their growth and their relationship with one another. I also am working on taking photos of the kids with ME too.
But since projects around the house are slacking, I haven't documented the day-to-day much. I haven't captured the imprint kids are leaving on this house and our daily lives.
When living in West Jordan, I started a little series called "here and there," which reminded me to go about the house and photograph random vignettes that caught my eye. Or to look around during outings with Aspen and see a small moment worth remembering. Taking that one step further, Lindsay suggests photographing the little (or maybe big) messes and evidences that show kids are here.
So, one early morning (thanks for the 530a wake up call, Linc!) I walked around the house after breakfast and snapped shots of what proves I have kids in my home. Kids who play and create and change the way I live.
I resisted the urge to move anything, and actually photographed things as is so I will remember the way we live.
I need to let go of my desire to have an organized home and just give in to the chaos. I think I'll be a lot happier. Either that or just get rid of everything (but not the kids, I swear).
