There are times, in the middle of a normal, everyday activity that I realize I'm experiencing a moment that I never want to forget.

Tonight was one of those times. Bennett insisted that we go into the kitchen to play "basketball". I brought in a laundry basket, but it turned out that he just wanted to play catch. About five minutes in, I knew that I had to capture this time so that I could remember it forever (that is, if I don't end up deleting all my pictures again).

I don't even care that you can see that the floor hasn't been swept in days, the trash is overflowing &Bennett's face is dirty. Because, honestly? That's how it is. Shouldn't that be how we remember it? How it really was? &this is how it was...messy &oh-so-much fun. Someday I will want to remember the genuine smiles and laughter of this innocent little boy.


  1. He looks older than when we were there! Must be getting ready to turn two!

  2. I think it is the cars on his feet that make him look older. lol.
    Just joking...he is so cute!
