We had a great idea to surprise Gwen for Mothers’ Day with some photographs of her girls. Matt got into the action too. I created a video of her images and emailed it to Gwen first thing Sunday morning so it would be there waiting for her when she woke up.
Your children are growing and changing every day, your family is reconfiguring itself and beloved rituals will soon fade away. You used to worry about them sleeping through the night, now you’re dissecting middle school friendships. If you have young children as I do, it’s hard to imagine they will be out of the house one day.
It’s important to document our lives, the milestone birthdays, the anniversaries, the small moments, the day-to-day, spending the day at the beach, cuddling in bed, picking out your Christmas tree, gathering around the table, playing in the backyard. All of it is important. Take a photograph of it today.
