I got the camera out another time this week after watching my kids at play. I've been reading this book, Nurtureshock, and it reminded me of the importance of pretend play among children. My kids were engrossed in some elaborate back story involving their lego house with the lego ball people who live there who when they pee it sounds like "twinkle, twinkle, little star" (I don't even ask anymore, they come up with the craziest stuff). I let them have an extra long recess because they were playing so well together that I didn't want to interrupt, as absurd as their play seemed, I figured it was still beneficial in some way. My son was wearing his cape and mask that day in anticipation of a super hero party he was going to that night so I got some cute photos of him in action as well. I'm glad I've taken more photos of ordinary moments lately. I wonder which photos I will look back on with most fondness in ten years time. These or the posed ones? Only time will tell, I guess...
When you are not a morning person it helps when you get woken up by this sweet smile.
And the sweet giggles of this silly boy.
I love this.
The lego house they built together. I don't even think they noticed I was taking photos of them.
My little superhero. He wasn't satisfied with just the cape and mask, he needed a weapon. The bow and arrows were a good choice I think.
I took this photo only after strict instructions were given not to hit my camera lens with that suction cup arrow! He's actually a pretty good shot and that suction sticks to the wall.
I forgot to mention he had a sidekick...kung fu girl...or something like that, I can't remember now.
Off to rid the world of evil! Or at least chase his sister around the house a few times. :)
I'm hoping for more fun times together this week but maybe, just maybe we'll get to go outside? Did I mention it's supposed to snow and we are on Spring Break? Ugh...Ohio....
