a photo of Emmet every week in 2017
Sometimes I run around and clean the house or only share the perfect parts. I like to pretend that we keep things perfect and tidy. I crop out the mess and take photos in the morning when both of us are freshly cleaned and clothed and haven't been stained by baby food or my mascara hasn't started to run. I like to show the clean parts and curate my little life, it is a part of what brings me joy, but since we also like to be honest...
-The grass is rarely mowed
-The yard is filled with dandelions
-There are usually boogers and food all over both of us
-There are toys all over the house
-The dishes are rarely all done
-The laundry is usually a mountain (both clean and dirty)
-Sometimes all we do is watch TV and mope around the house
I think this photo pretty much sums it up. My sweet little E with boogers running down his face, standing in tall grass and dandelions, but he still is an adorable little boy. Sharing the perfect parts is fun, but so is capturing sweet authentic moments, like this little boy standing all on his own boogers and all.
