When I pictured being a mummy one image that I always had was all of us in bed together for morning snuggles, what I didn’t picture was the clock saying 5.30am, but that’s a different story. I just had vision’s of my children waking up and running to our room and jumping into bed with us.
Now that I am a mummy, of course it’s not exactly how I pictured it Alice does now run to our room. But, Holly calls to be lifted out of her cot and into our arms. But, I always carry her up to our room and we snuggle in bed together.
These are some of my favourite moments, they always look so cute in their pyjamas and their messy hair. They are still a bit sleepy and wanting to cuddle up for sleepy snuggles.
Holly just loves getting into my side pulling the duvet up and saying ‘sleep mummy’ and this is a moment that I don’t want to forget, I want to picture it forever. But I know that it will soon be a moment that will be replaced with new ones, because as hard as we try we can’t remember them all. It’s the reason I started my blog, to capture all our family memories, however small they may be.
And what would we do without the camera on our phone, when we can quickly grab it to capture those moments we want to hold onto forever. I take hundred’s of photos on my phone and have so many moments that I can look back on forever, which without my phone I would never have. The moment would have passed by the time I found my camera, turned it on and press the button.
Capturing Holly saying ‘sleep mummy’, makes me smile every time I look at it. It captures everything about my funny little girl. Her curly hair, the screwing up of her face and her cheeky smile.
Without my camera phone I wouldn’t have captured this moment to look back on forever and it makes me think back to when I was a little girl and all the moments that my mum would have loved to capture of me and couldn’t. Even if she had been quick and caught it, who know’s what it would be like until she sent of the film to be processed. Just writing that seems strange, we are a generation that has everything at our fingertips.
The camera phone has given us so much and I am happy that I can capture those ‘ X Moment’s’ in life…
