That's true, and I'm taking time to appreciate the every day, because these moments will be gone before you know it. Especially with the kids. We always feel that they are growing up too fast, and that's the reality.
Sometimes I remind myself to put down my camera and "invisible pen" to be 100% present but memories will also fade. I know mine is already fading. There are times when I try hard to remember something, but just can't. Maybe it's "old age", maybe it's stress, maybe it's really just genetics haha. Words and photos will always be there to help refresh my memory, and to help me live in the moment, time and time again.
When I was taking this series of photos, Lil Pumpkin asked me why. I told her I wanted to remember how she looks like at this moment, when she's 4.5 years old. The way her tiny hand fits snugly in mine, the way her eyes sparkle with love and wonder, the way her legs have little bruises from adventurous play.
"Because I'll look different when I get older, Mummy?" Yes dear, and also perhaps because next time you may not let Mummy to take photos of you anymore ;)
