a normal day


On October 18th, my daughter was born and I became the mother of three children. Hundreds of miles away, on the same day, another baby girl was born and another woman added the third child to her family. We were complete strangers at that time, but our love of photography and family brought us together. We started to have a conversation about motherhood with images, because we tell stories with our cameras. Since some tales are so similar, and some are not, we decided to collaborate and share a photo a week from a normal day as a mother to three.

“Normal day, let me be aware of the treasure you are. Let me learn from you, love you, bless you before you depart. Let me not pass you by in quest of some rare and perfect tomorrow. Let me hold you while I may, for it may not always be so. One day I shall dig my nails into the earth, or bury my face in the pillow, or stretch myself taut, or raise my hands to the sky and want, more than all the world, your return.”     – Mary Jean Irion

my little guy loves morning soaks in the tub.  he especially loves to take a bath on days when his big sister is in preschool.  he gets the tub all to himself.  and unlike the nighttime baths where we are in a hurry to get washed and ready for bed, in the morning he can take as long as he wants.  on this day, he played in the bath for over an hour.  he had prune fingers to prove it.
