Ordinary Moments in Ordinary Days Oct. 15 to Oct. 28

I have done a horrible job at keeping up with my posts for my Ordinary Moments in Ordinary Days project for October, which is almost finished (can’t even believe how fast the month has gone!) so I am going to do my best to catch up here. My idea, at first, was to take one photo each day but that didn’t really work out like I’d hoped and in my goal to let go of unrealistic expectations for myself I decided to simply feature images from whatever days I did shoot something. 

Oct. 15, 2017 | Here is Little Miss practicing being a baby dragon for Halloween. As I’m writing this we haven’t hit Halloween yet, so we’ll see if she actually wears it for trick-or-treating.

Oct. 17, 2017 | Showing off her style and breaking in her winter boots.

Oct. 19, 2017 | This isn’t what I meant by “can you pose in that beautiful light for me?” but this is a popular scene from our evenings.

Oct.20, 2017 | It was like Pixel, our cat, (yes, Pixel) posed for me by this poster of the ninth Doctor.

Oct. 21, 2017 | Nerf war preparations. They shot me. A lot. It hurt.

Oct. 23, 2017 | This looks a lot more violent than it is. It’s a bb gun and he’s aiming at cans.

This is part of a new project called Ordinary Moments in Ordinary Days where I capture ordinary moments in our days for the month of October. Those ordinary moments often make up very extraordinary lives. We may not all be famous or save lives on a global scale or make a national or international impact, but each of us have the opportunity to touch others, show them light, and speak life. Each of us have moments, the small moments, the little details of our day, that mean something to us, even if they don’t mean anything to anyone else.

My oldest was gone for a campout for school and I used a visit to my aunt in a local nursing home to distract myself from his absence. While we were there, visiting her in the courtyard, the weather was cloudy. Once outside the sun broke through as it was setting and Little Miss thought it would be fun to make me chase her while we waited for Grandpa to come to his car.

I’ve been trying to get more photos of my son lately. Oops.

My oldest, The Boy, decided he wanted to paint pumpkins tonight on the back steps. It may have been a way to avoid his homework, but because I had just read an article about much happier Dutch children are because their parents let them explore on their own, I let him paint while his sister looked on.

It was her birthday. She made me wrestle her out of the shirt she’d been wearing since yesterday but giggled during the process. Then suddenly she was mad at me. I wanted her to get dressed again so we could go pick her brother up from the bus stop. She didn’t want to. So she stood and sulked and glared at me around the door as the minutes ticked down to when we needed to leave. I asked her why she was mad but she wouldn’t answer. Finally she said “mama, you say sorry?” I had no idea why I was apologizing but we were on a schedule so I did and she smiled again and threw herself into my arms. She happily put on her dress and we headed to the van as if nothing had happened. Apparently her third year of life is going to be even more confusing than her second year.
