Notes To my Children



{A weekly portrait project} 21 // 52

Luke: You started 2nd grade last week. When I asked you what you were most looking forward to on the first day, you replied, "Dismissal!"  I thought I could keep it together this year so I decided to walk you in on the first day instead of coasting through carpool armed with a box of tissues. Just as you bravely walked toward you classroom and I thought I was safe, you ran back to me and gave me the tightest little hug that felt as if you'd never let go. I'm sorry I quickly pushed you along. One more moment and would have become "that mom."

Jett: This past weekend you obliged me with a game of Yahtzee on the front porch and beat me fair and square. I see a rematch in your future.
