In the Quiet Moments
Every so often, they just let me take pictures. They do their thing, give me a look, and choose to continue what they’re doing and ignore my snapping away. It’s not often. All of the right things have to come together for it to happen – right mood, right time of day and light, quiet kids staying still(ish), camera nearby or kids still long enough for me to go grab a camera quietly and return to them still relaxing. My complaints about them not napping most days now are at least appeased by the fact that they will relax in the afternoon and play quietly or choose to read a stack of books in lieu of having to take a nap when given the choice.
