These days it’s near impossible to get a photo of him that isn’t blurry. He is constantly in motion, something he clearly gets from me, his mother-who-can’t-ever-sit-still. This will be one of those photos that he looks back on and says: “ahhh mooomm, why’d you have to share that one?”
I’m not a big Halloween kind of person, but when you have children, a little piece of you suddenly remembers that the day is like as a child. While DJ was still too young to comprehend what was really happening, it was cute watching him run around as Superman, nonetheless.
It was such a natural moment, the way it came together. I turned the corner and there they were, reading together. I was thankful to have my camera nearby so that I could snap the photo before DJ even realized what I was doing. These days, if he sees the camera, he comes running for it.
Every so often we are given a glimpse of the young boy you will soon become, the things you will enjoy doing, the things that will both excite you and frustrate you. You’re growing so quickly before our eyes, dear DJ. Slow down a little, okay?
