Early Morning Selfies

by Kiley Durham in


I'm not entirely sure how this always happens, but there seems to be a direct correlation between nap time--or lack there of--and my husband's trips out of town.  Somehow we always seem to be having one of those weeks when my husband is away...one of those weeks in which we have decided we have "super strength" and can fly off the back of the furniture, we no longer need naps, and we need to rearrange the cutlery drawer while Mom is in the bathroom. (And by rearrange, I mean take everything out and hide the drawer's contents in a different room altogether.)  

Sometime early this morning a little crazy haired monster snuck into my bed. He needed  to "snuggle like buggles".  The little monster moved in as close as he could and said, "I'm so happy to be here, Mommy." It's amazing how, in a split second, the stress of yesterday's nap-free playing/flying/throwing bonanza just melted away.  We took a couple silly photos as the sun was coming up, and I even managed to catch a kiss on film...

Fortunately Dad is on his way back today and the balance of power around here will be restored by bedtime tonight. When he asks me how the weekend worked out, I'll say it was perfect.

Early morning selfies

A little weekend morning tradition...

Since our son was born, I have always been in charge of the morning shift. While some mornings I long for a few extra winks before rising and shining, our mornings together have become a special time.  He wakes up ready to go everyday...no slow ease into the mornings for this one! His silliness is contagious and before I know it, we are both giggling the morning away while his dad catches up on some much needed rest. Our favorite morning ritual has become our silly selfies.  I took these two on the beach this weekend.  It was cool and overcast, and we were two of exactly ten people on the entire beach. After a good old fashioned game of chase (boys never grow tired of this game) we collasped in the sand for just a few minutes.  Snap! Snap! Snap!  I didn't even have time to check the pictures before he was up and running again...

I will probably frame these...they are happy memories from a happy summer. 

Happy Sunday
