As I was doing my usual blog hop, I stumbled across Mummy Daddy Me’s regular The Ordinary Moments weekly post. I then read back and saw all the previous posts. She has been doing these posts since August 2013. It it such an awesome way to share those moments that seem ordinary at the time but we as parents will miss in the future. For example, this post from July called Capturing Special Moments. It really was an ordinary moment but looking back now I smile at Amelia’s two bottom teeth. I remember what we were doing when it happened and I think about how fast she is growing. Is it selfish of me to want my kids to stay little forever?
To quote Katie “The simple things in life are often the sweetest. While the fancy days out, weekends away or holidays are fun, it’s the ordinary moments I will miss when my children are all grown up. The snuggling in bed reading a story. The giggles as they run around my overgrown garden with the grass that desperately needs a cut. Even the naughty ones. The ones we all have. Just a photo from your week. The simple. The exciting. The imperfect. The Ordinary Moments.” I have decided to participate in the Ordinary Moments linky and here is my first post.
“Use your Smile to change the world but don’t let the world change our smile” No idea who said tho but it’s so apt for photo.
Though, my husband believes their smile in this picture is fake, I believe it is as real as they come. I wasn’t pulling silly faces or dancing with the hopes of getting a smile. Neither was I expecting to capture of of them smile at the same time. But it happened and I am so glad it did.
