the next one calls me mommy
& the little two call me mama
yesterday those four cuties & my sweet man made me feel very loved
handmade glittered cards
facebook messages ( yes, you know you have arrived when your teenager writes on your wall)& a new lens ( decided on a 50mm f/1.4) is on its way!!!!
including blueberries....crossing my fingers they make it!
caroline knew i wanted to plant lettuce but since the nursery was sold out
then she started talking to me about a harvest....harvest? oh dear....pressure for sure
she had asked dan to take her so she could pick out pretties for my garden ( & i do use that term loosely). she wanted to pay with her own money. sweet child
so we opted to picnic in the back yard for lunch
yes i realize 1:00 is not the prime time for photos
so these are all overexposed
i wasn't going for portraits
just wanted to document our special day
so here's a few glimpses of our afternoon
gotta capture that moment right?
& they all cheer
other than that
all three of my teenage daughters are
mothering these girls is a constant reminder that i need grace
trying to be consistant
yet respond to , react to, discipline, encourage, love on each one individually
is quite the challenge
what drives one out of her mind
makes the other feel loved
whats no biggie to one
would be a near death event for another
we're full speed ahead with SAT's, tampons, drivers licenses, & designer jeans
we share jewelry, purses, shoes & clothes
talk about colleges, boys, & body piercings
sorry ladies! but your day is coming
i saw you roll your eyes!
i miss having little ones who still "need" me
but i wouldn't trade this stage for anything
my little 9 year old keeps things fresh for me
& keeps my love tank pretty full
heaven help me when she asks for a tattoo!
