On a hectic day, when the kids are wild, the house is a mess, and I'm behind on editing... basically about to loose my mind, I remember my Dad's words, sit down and play with my kids. As much as I love what I do as a photographer, I don't take every job, I block out a week or two here and there just for them, and I remember that I am a wife and mother before anything else, because I know that pretty soon it's going to be me asking them to play a game or go for a walk. It's hard work, this parenting thing, and I think we forget sometimes that as much as they need us now, the time will come when they won't. So....here's to children! Make time for them so when they do remembered us again, they will have great memories!
