Sometimes I go for long periods of time without photographing any of my children. But each time I dust off my camera and bring it along (even to something as simple as a haircut), I’m reminded of how important it is to document your days.
It feels like each time I blink, another year passes. My children grow older and taller and wiser. One day I will wake up and all four of them will be grown, living lives of their own. It’s important to tell your children’s stories, it’s all they’ll have to look back on once they aren’t so little anymore.
Will had been asking for a haircut almost every day for months. Each time, my answer was the same.
“Maybe next week”…
But when my older son and husband went for a haircut and I saw how sad Will was, I knew it was time. We hadn’t cut Will’s hair since the beginning of August and it was beautiful, framing his little face so perfectly. The gentleman did such a wonderful job cutting his hair and Will was happy to be able to see again.
