I have two young kids and sometimes I feel like the days just drag on with crying, hitting, and my youngest getting into everything he shouldn’t over and over again. Yet even in those times, sometimes, I feel like I just want to hold onto those moments so tight and I don’t want my little ones to ever grow up.
Usually it’s just the small, simple moments that are the most precious. Nobody is doing anything special. But I get to take a step back and look at how precious my children are to me and I just want time to stand still. Luckily for me, I have a camera to capture those special moments so I can remember them forever.
And then, of course, there’s the moments when we are somewhere special and I make everyone stop so I can take a photo of them. Because I never want to forget those special times. For example, earlier this year, we spent time as a family only one hour away from our house in a different city. We rented a condo, swam in the pool, walked around downtown, went on small “hikes,” and ate on the balcony for almost every meal. It really wasn’t a big deal and doesn’t sound like much to others, but for me, it was time with just our little family, so that meant the world to me.
