This kid plays hard and really he needs a nap every day but at four years old he doesn't want to take one. About 3 times a week, I find him in random places asleep. Yesterday, he feel asleep just like this. Made me giggle so of course I had to capture him dreaming away...
All year I have been doing a little personal photo project. I haven't really shared much of it on the blog. It's a 52 week project or one photo a week for a year. Each week there is a theme. This week's theme is motherhood and as many of you mommas out there know, May is a busy month when you have kids in school. I have hardly picked up my camera the last two weeks. I've been running all over: piano recitals, baseball games, soccer games, preschool programs, kindergarten graduation, dance recitals, class parties and the list goes on! I did manage to capture this moment though. This is my kindergartner. She is growing up so fast (makes me wanna cry) but this is motherhood. It's my job to make sure all these little monotonous things (like homework) get done so they can grow up to be responsible adults. It's really hard a lot of the time and I must admit that 8:00pm (aka bedtime) might be favorite time of day on many days. BUT there are always times during the day when I have little moments that make it all worth it. Sometimes they are silly things like watching my growing 6 year-old-soon-to-be-1st-grader do her very last kindergarten homework assignment and feeling the depth of just how much I love her...motherhood SO HARD yet so REWARDING!
PS If you want to see my other project 52 photos head on over to my flickr photostream here.
I must admit, I got lots of funny looks taking these pictures at our local favorite hangout, Costco! People must have been wondering why in the world I would want to take pictures there! It was very funny and I'm so glad I did it. It's a slice of our life! And a trip to Costco almost always involves, suckers, churros, and lots of begging to buy junk we don't need! hehehe (it could be said I'm the sucker) These are the things that I want to remember someday when they are too big to sit in the cart. Just love these.
I got a new camera bag/purse from Ketti Handbags (which are apparently really hard to get). I am in love! It is so stinking cute but it also safely holds my camera! I no longer have to take my purse and my big ugly canon camera bag in order to bring my camera along! Often, I just left it home because I just can't deal with all that stuff plus hold a kid or two on either hip! I am going to start taking photos like these more often! I only spent about 5 minutes taking these photos but MAN I love the results! I treasure these already. It almost makes grocery shopping look fun! :)
P.S. I'm kinda proud of how healthy my shopping cart contents look (and I'm not talking about my kiddos). Don't judge me for the premade jello and pudding cups! :)
