Life According to Instagram
Most of the pictures I take of the girls are in either pj’s or diapers because that’s what they are wearing during the hours I am home. Except on the weekends, my two favorite days of the week. If it were up to me we would go go go, do do do for a full 48 hours, to pack in a weeks worth of fun into these two precious days. But it’s not up to me, it’s up to two sweet toddlers who like their routine, naps, and couldn’t care less if we are at Disney World or in our own backyard. Since the day they were born I have felt rushed, rushed to get things ready, rushed to get things done, rushed to make memories and rushed to give them every possible experience. The problem is that rushing never works, especially with kids, especially with babies and especially with twins. I’m learning slowly that there is time, time to do all the things I want to do with my family, later, in the months and years to come. And I am learning that if we don’t get to every single thing that’s ok, because what is more important is to enjoy what you are doing now, make time to rest so you can enjoy what’s coming next and save some of the fun for a rainy day. I know I will never stop wanting to do more, make more and photograph more but I am learning to find the right balance, the mix of me time, us time and family time.
