      I know how you feel, Mel. I think that a lot of my reading time has been sucked up by blogging time. As a result, I don’t read as much as I would like to. I’m hoping that the summer brings more quiet afternoons in the backyard – perfect for catching up on my reading. 🙂

    I adore that you let Lila act as photographer. I find it endearing that she realizes what a treat it is and embraces that it is special. She has quite the eye. Your girls look so much like you. What an incredibly sweet picture of you reading to them. But, the story behind how it was taken, melted my heart. My next photo shoot, I’m hiring Lila 🙂

      She does have quite the eye for photography, I’m realizing! She’s got an artistic streak that runs through her, and the older she gets, the more I’m seeing it in her drawings and photos.

      Oh, and Lila is 100% staged in her photo with us. I have about 45 identical photos of her “reading” with us, but really, she just wanted to try to get the best fake photo of her! 😉 What a hambone!

      Thank you, Clydia! I’m constantly reminding myself to stop and savour these moments. I’m already seeing time fly by, and they’re only 4 and 2!

    Hi Tara! I came across your blog via the FB blogging group. Great Post! Enjoy those moments with the little ones. Time flies. My two are a little older, so my self portrait would probably be very similar to your first inclination…wine and a laptop as props! Love the pics! Your little one did a great job!

      Thanks for visiting, Michelle! You’re right – wine and a laptop are two of my most favourite things! 🙂 I’m trying to savour these moments with the girls; I have to remind myself that soon they won’t want to read with me on the couch! (It’s just hard to imagine when I’m being dragged over to the couch over-and-over-and-over-again)

      Oh, thank you, Kenzie! I’ll tell Lila that!

      (I’ll take the compliment, but “radiant” is a bit of a stretch. Do you see the yoga pants? The slippers? I be house-wifin’ that day! 🙂 )

    What great pictures! Love that your daughter is interested in photography at such an early age. I think you should still take the pic of the Pinot and screen though!!

      Isn’t it crazy that she’s already so fascinated by photography? And the trouble is, at four years old, she’s already “done” with the kiddie camera that we got her. She wants the real deal. Maybe I’ll find a cheap-o one for her to practice on.

      Maybe I SHOULD do the wine/computer shot one day. They are some of my favourite things! 🙂

    So sweet! You’re instilling a love of reading and of photography… Great passions to have. And sometimes “together” time is better than just “me” time. 😉

      Jen – You’re so right. “Together time” can be so much better than “me time”. Although it’s true, a little “me time” every now and again is good for the old Sanity Tank. Gotta keep that full so that mama doesn’t lose her marbles! 😉

    How cool is this? Lila is a pretty savvy photographer if you ask me. I actually really like her photo compositions. That chair photo is such a sweet still life. I think we may have a burgeoning photographer in our midsts!

      Lauren, I’ll tell her that you like her photos! Yes, her camping chair shot has so much potential! 😉 I’m thinking that this child might need her own camera sooner than I had anticipated!

      Thank you, Laurie! I adore Lila’s pictures too (of course I do, I’m so biased!). Lucy is definitely into the book and Lila is “posing”. You’d be amazed at this child’s acting skills… I’m feeling like the teen years might be doozies! 😉

    Sooooo sweet! We are huge readers here too! I get such a thrill when I see my older kiddos reading or have one of the younger ones bring me a book! You have quite the little photographer on your hands! {AWESOME}

      Oh, thank you, Kadie! I’ll tell Lila that you like her photos – she’s already getting a bit of a swelled head about it – time to find her her own camera.

      I try to make reading a big deal around here – and for the most part, it’s worked! I can’t wait until they are able to read on their own. It’s going to be so weird… and yet, so awesome!

    These pics are so cute! I think it’s super important to take selfies every once a while so that we know that we actually exist in the family!

      I agree, Kelly! It’s so easy to overlook the fact that someone had to take the picture with the camera. I think that I’m going to start using my tripod more often!
