Some days, it seems like most of our day was sunshine with a few clouds.
Some days, I climb the stairs at bedtime, exhausted, with unhappy voices echoing in my head. Are these kids ever happy?
Well, yes. They are. Every day for at least a few split seconds. (1/200 of a second for the above photo.)
Yesterday, we met cousins at a playground. We played and played. My kids were screaming as we got into the car (tired, hot and hungry). Atticus was clamoring for a milkshake. I am not one to say no to a milkshake.
We got one. They shared it.
This gets to the heart of why I take photos almost every day. Sometimes it is hard to remember that these sweet moments happen every day. But, I have proof.
This week – Try It: Notice the Sweet Stuff.
If you asked me, “Do Atticus and Augusta laugh together?” I would probably say, “I don’t know. Atticus laughs after he knocks her down.”
But look! They do laugh together. I hadn’t noticed.
I’d love to see what you notice this week. Send your photo in an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
Coming on Friday: photos from readers who have been trying it. (Want in? It’s not too late.)
