I haven’t done a Wednesday photo post in awhile. But I took the girls out for pictures last week.
There may have been a Dairy Queen treat as a bribe. Maybe.Okay for sure. For me.
It’s so strange this year to have a warm March and April. To have the trees blooming so early.
I look at these photos and can see how much my girls have grown this year. Same place. One year ago.
Astrid has hair. The bitchy lady was not at Dairy Queen.
Sometimes I cannot get over how beautiful my kids are. Is that weird to say?
It’s just that they are just so kind and good to the core. They wear their emotions on their sleeves and they are the best friends you will ever have.
They love and protect each other. They never fight. They do almost everything together. I could not be more proud.
I’m also glad that they know their mother is so much less than perfect. That sometimes I make mistakes, sometimes I yell, sometimes I cry, sometimes I ruin dinner, sometimes I don’t buy them that cool shirt they really want.
But I’m always the first to tell them a joke or do a silly dance or to remind them not to take things so seriously because what is life without laughter.
I also offer them coffee every morning. I know one day they will take me up on that offer.
So as we move forward another year. Or two. And I take their pictures and feed them ice cream….I just want them to know that they are perfect. In every way. Always.
I’m sharing a letter to Eloise at Letters for Lucas today. I would love for you to visit me there.
