just to keep it honest here.
i can sometimes put a bit of unnecessary pressure on myself to try not to let photos of my children be so all-consuming on my blog.
especially with this gratefulness series.
like there is some kind of rule that i need to photograph other things too.
and while i do feel interested in photographing other things, just for the fun of it, i'm not as interested in that as i am in photographing them.
they are so very interesting and entertaining to me.
all the time.
it never gets old.
(if you don't have kids and you are doubting this...believe it!)
i may get sick of them....but i never get sick of them.
and plus, my life is pretty much completely taken over by them.
so i am publicly saying that i know i take a lot of pictures of them.
but i am going to keep doing that and you can like it or not.
and you will know when i get tired of it because i will stop taking the photos, kay?
and i will not try and be anything that i'm not....until i am.
(do you understand this? not sure if i do...)
and also, i want to try and put an image with each of my hundred things
so sometimes it's a stretch to figure out what to put with an idea.
the smell of my children's hair.
it starts out as a baby head (a unmistakable smell, right?)
and then morphs into a sorta sweaty and spicy smell.
sweet when there's been a recent bath or shower.
a bit on the musty side, if not.
i love that smell, no matter what.
i wonder what i'll think when they're teenagers.
for now, let it be known that i am grateful for the smell of my children's hair.
