A Day In the Life...

It occurred to me recently that my oldest child will soon be a daily school goer. We will no longer have the luxury of sitting home all day and doing nothing with no where to go. Last year I would not really have minded this. I am not much of a home body and usually plan at least one activity that takes us out of the house per day. 
Somehow, realizing that my little guy will be getting up and ready for school every single weekday for the next 13 years got me a little sentimental about the last 4 years we have spent together. All of the banana french toast we have made late in the morning. All of the Caillou that has been watched. All of the morning trips to the park or to the store....
See? I am getting all emotional again!

While laying around on Mommy's bed the other morning I looked around and realized how good I have it. I had all 3 of my children playing together and enjoying eachother.
I just wanted to always remember this day and how good it made me feel so I pulled out the camera and started snapping pictures.

Once my children realized they were being photographed they decided to ham it up! And, yes, my boys literally run around in only their undies whenever they are home. I have not been able to talk them into putting on pants yet. (believe me, I have tried!)

This is so true. There is nothing else I would rather be doing then spending quantity AND quality time with these little ones. It goes way too fast, but at least you can say you got to experience every moment! Such cute pictures of their precious faces.
