I started doing this a while ago when I stumbled upon an instagram hashtag called the kids were here! I found myself muffling my hysterical laughing while Linc was trying to nap for his two hours!
When we become parents, our lives are changed in a million different ways: big ways and small tiny ways!
For me, one of the biggest changes I am still trying to learn to embrace is letting go and just enjoying the moment! I am always trying to learn from Linc in the art of letting it be!
That nesting bug bite me pretty bad when I was pregnant, so while I’m better now that I have a toddler and life is just beautifully crazy… I still like to clean up a bit behind my little man!
What happens though as I move from these daily tasks to tasks is that I find myself giggling and shaking my head when I see little reminders of the way Linc see’s the world.
Our children are always leaving little pieces of themselves for us to discover and find!
Sometimes, these reminders might delight my heart! Other times, let’s be honest… they might drive me crazy (like stepping on lego’s that are left in my ugg boots from time to time!)
Sometimes though, I am blessed with remembering that these days aren’t always going to hang around! Those are the days when I grab my camera as fast as I can and document these silly little play reminders that “my kid was here” today!
It’s an every day moment but it’s a simple moment that reminds me that each second has an opportunity for magic and imagination~
Here’s what’s been sitting on my camera lately!
This one happened this morning! After making his breakfast and asking him to come sit at the table, I walked over to find that below! When I asked Linc what in the world spiderman was doing and what happened to his train table, his reply was soo incredibly perfect! ” SPIDEY SMUSH STORM!” And then I kid you not, he cackled!
There are just no words for ^ this one! Linc doesn’t play with these guys a whole lot yet… but when he does they just find themselves in a lot of troubling tactical missions!
This poor little guy below, he gets picked up and dropped and lost all the time! Tipper was licking him the other day and that’s the first I had seen of him after that incident below!
And just for fun… sometimes the moments happens in between the ones we are hoping to capture!
Happy Weekend Everyone and Happy Friday! Enjoy your time with your littles and all the magic and wonder and whimsy they bring!
