In the Morning
Early this week, I decided that I’d photograph our morning. It was springs and warm and sunny and I have been focusing so much on a million different things lately that I haven’t been taking as many normal, “slice of life” photos of the kids. My mornings are my time with the kids. We have our norms and they vary a bit, but generally we get up and get dressed, watch George, have breakfast, play a little then head out if we need to – to preschool, for errands, to play with friends. I try to dedicate more days to staying home entirely, but with necessary lunch and nap time in the afternoon followed often by me needing to get to work by 4pm, the mornings are our time of doing. So I wanted to document the normal a bit. I liked it so much that I continued it over a few days – playing outside, dyeing eggs, eating breakfast in the backyard and in bed, making art projects, visiting a neighbor, playing, visiting Grandpa, stopping for lunch groceries, getting some seeds planted, buying some lettuce plants. Nothing too crazy and that’s just how we like it!
(Yes, they’re Pop Tarts – don’t judge! They were a special treat and my kids didn’t even know what they were!)
