We are so, so busy. I just launched my Photography business and booked up fourteen sessions in eight hours. I still have two sessions in the editing queue and another one scheduled on Sunday. And I am still a full time stay at home mom. I am trying to embrace the idea that it's good for the kids to practice playing independently. Not all day, but if the other is napping and their are no immediate meals and we have already had our big play date that day, it's play quietly time. Don't imagine that this goes smoothly. It doesn't, but we are catching on slowly. In the middle, though, I took an hour and edited these photos and am writing. I have no idea how I am going to do this more regularly in September, but it's part of my heart and I need to. I need to remember these beautiful moments.
I need all of it. I need it to feel like a full person.
Whose life is about more than just milk.
On Monday Ben dragged a chair into the bathroom so that he could spend time with Daddy while he was getting ready for work. Baby Sis soon joined, too. They love and worship Daddy. When Ben gets in trouble, he loudly imagines Daddy flying through the door in a red cape to rescue him.
There are beautiful, quiet moments of intense love and peace, and I need this space here, to capture and remember them. There is nothing more important to me than being with my family and savoring that through words and pictures.
