What I'm Listening To: Daughters by John Mayer
Time goes by so fast...
It seems like yesterday when I captured a pic of Sadie and her dad on her second Halloween. He was decked out as a football player, she was a ladybug with pretty red and black wings and antennas. I remember thinking how small she was as she held his hand and walked away to collect candy....a precious moment that is so vivid in my mind.
I snapped this as we were walking toward the park yesterday in the city. As the mom of a teen, I am always happy when I am witness to pure happiness from her. The times when there are no pretense, no agenda...just laughter and smiles. While the boys lagged behind with me, I caught this sweet moment between a father and daughter. It wasn't until I was editing it later that I was so overwhelmed with how tall and grown up she has gotten as she hung on to her dad's arm. I know he hopes that she will always do that no matter how old she gets.
This week, we will be spending some time just the three of us while the boys spend a few nights with friends. We will be savoring every second with her as we plan some things to do together...
You all take care!
