I don’t want to live behind the camera, but I do want to capture our everyday life too… and sometimes finding a balance in doing so is not easy. Every once in a while I feel like I haven’t been too good at taking pictures of ordinary moments, and so I’ll bring out the camera and try to do just that. Which is what I did last week. Kennedy and Bristol were in their room playing and so I walked up to the door with my camera and started snapping away…at first they didn’t even notice me, and then when they did notice, they took advantage of the fact they could jump on the bed (while I just stood there taking pictures instead of reminding them – as I do daily – “no jumping on the bed!”) and acted silly. I love these ‘real’ moments, which are made even better by the fact these are taken in their room, because I know we’ll love looking back on them one day….
And for those of you who’ve asked “do they ever fight?” Oh yes! They do…. I really am amazed at how well they get along, and how much they take care of each other, but they do fight too. Of course, it wouldn’t be normal if they didn’t, right? :)
Lately, there has been a reoccurring argument that goes something like this:
driving down the road… Kennedy is amazed at the corn that is currently growing in the fields…and after the first time this happened, it is like Bristol just knows that it annoys Kennedy and so she disagrees all the more!
Kennedy: Mom, is that corn fields?
Kennedy: Momma thats so cool! Corn is a vegetable, right?
Me: Yep, thats right.
Kennedy: Look Bristol! There is corn growing out there!
Bristol: No its not…thats gwass! (grass)
Kennedy: No, its corn.
Bristol: (yelling) NO ITS NOT! ITS GWASS! ITS GWASS SISSY!
Kennedy: (now also yelling) IT IS NOT! ITS CORN! Momma, Sissy said that is grass, and it is not, its corn!
Yep, it goes something like that till I make them both hush.
Oh, and every once in awhile Kennedy thinks it is hilarious to go running off with Bristol’s Minnie Mouse (whom she dearly loves) and the other day I had to rescue Minnie who Kennedy had thrown up on top of the fridge. Poor Bristol was trying to get a kitchen chair scooted over to reach her - as if she could!
Happy Monday everyone, and thanks for looking!
