So, what did I do? I took a 10 minute break and I looked at these:
My sweet boys.
Pictures just make me smile.
Makes me also realize I did not take enough pictures of my boys when they were little. I thought I had alot, but now looking back I realize that I didn't get nearly enough. I should have taken one every single day so I could remember how sweet and precious they were as tiny little people. I should have taken one of every finger, every toe, every hair on their little heads. And on my little Chipster - that would have been a ton of pictures! That boy had hair for DAYS!
Here are a couple of pictures I took of Chip's hand while we were at the park. Aren't they just precious? A dirty little hand that has been playing hard at the park. That was only last year and now his hand seems double that size.
I tell you all this because I AM INSPIRED!
I am going to keep my camera on the kitchen counter every day and take pictures of them while they are sleeping, while they are telling me a story, while they are walking home from the bus stop, while they are reading, while they are playing their video games, petting the dog, bouncing a ball, watching tv, eating dinner, brushing their teeth. I will be like paparazzi!
Capturing the mundane moments of the quickly passing days of their childhood. From the few minutes I spent looking at old pictures today, I know that they will be my most prized possession when my guys are grown and I want to go back and talk a little walk down memory lane.
So, if you are looking for me I will be taking pictures!!
Have a great weekend!
