Everyone is trying to accomplish something big, not realizing that life is made up of little things.
~Frank Howard Clark, American Screen Writer
My days are mostly the same from day to day. When Mark gets home and asks, "Anything special happen today?" The answer is most always "no." I know what he means and he knows what I mean. The truth is that every single day is special. The entire day.
I am well aware that some day when my children are grown that I will look back and cherish these little things that at the time didn't seem so extraordinary. Of course, knowing this doesn't make it any easier to avoid taking some things for granted. Hard as I try, I have days that are boring or exhausting or trying. I think that's okay, too. It's natural. Oh but I wish I could video tape every little thing that this kid does so someday when I'm feeling nostalgic I could go back and watch some of the 'little things' that I didn't pay quite enough attention to in the moment.
Chloe likes to read to her reflection...
Running as fast as she can. You can tell because her arms can't keep up with her legs...
Smiling after a going down the big slide!
I love her baby bangs...the little curly whisps of hair.
Watching Alice in Wonderland during lunch...a special treat.
