For me looking at photos of my family is good therapy. Parenting can be so hard and tedious. Like just yesterday: we were almost done with the bath when all of a sudden someone pooped in it. Then the next half hour was cleaning and sanitizing the tub and rewashing the kids and wishing I was doing anything else in the world. But then I saw a photo of all of us together and I remembered why I’m doing this. Our kids give us a lot of work, but they also give us a lot of unconditional love. While I was cleaning the poo and grumbling about it, both of the kids said: “we love you even when you are mad, mommy.” I couldn’t hug them immediately because of the mess, but I wanted to grab them and squeeze them so tight. They’ve been saying a lot of sweet stuff like that lately. Maybe it’s because I’ve been having a harder time than usual and they feel that. But maybe it’s because it’s just how they feel. Having photos of us together while they feel that way is so important to me. Because one day when they are angsty teenagers and saying they would rather hang out with their friends than me, I’ll have that photo of when I was the only one they wanted to hang out with. The only one allowed to brush their hair and clean their bottoms. The best mommy in the world.
So let’s get together and take some photos of you being the best people in their worlds :)
