People ask me how it is taking care of three kids. It’s kind of like this…
The other day, it was a nice day out. I successfully got the 2 little ones all ready to go out and pick up big sister from the school bus stop on time. And i thought after picking her up, we could take a nice stroll around the neighborhood. And the spring flowers are out, and we have been talking about taking pictures of them. So i grabbed my camera along with 2 kiddie cameras. We pick up big sister, walk a few minutes, and stop at a nice tree to start to take pictures. All is well. Curious neighbors immediately come up to us and ask questions about the girls. I try to answer as I click. click. 2 shots with my camera. Then – big sister is crying. She tripped going down a small incline, face hit the sidewalk, mouth is bleeding, (thankfully) hasn’t choked on the sucker that was in her mouth.
So we quickly pack up our things and head home. Big sister ends up with a nice fat lip that scars up the next day. Nice stroll lasted a good 5-7 minutes, perhaps, and no leisurely picture taking as envisioned. But I did manage those 2 quick shots shown above.
So life feels kind of like that right now – you never know what could happen. Changing, adjusting, or scrapping plans at any given moment. And moments – both the good and the bad – can be very fleeting. Kind of like those spring flowers. But beautiful, nonetheless. Kind of like those spring flowers.
