sharing bits & pieces of my life and client work

Bits & Pieces

February consisted of Ava losing a few more teeth; after recording the dates on her calendar and realizing she had actaully been putting her tooth under her pillow repeatedly, for over a week, (oops!) she found out the tooth fairy is not in fact a tiny, magical, fluttering fairy. She wasn't devastated. Phew! We enjoyed a trip to the Edmonton Art gallery with my Mom and Darryl (I forgot my camera at home. Boo.), a few family get togethers/dinners, 3 birthday celebrations, skating, Netflix binge watching and a whole lot of staying inside, because BRRR.

Because families are rad!

Truth bomb

I haven't picked up my camera in a month. Today, after helping her clean her room, she flopped on her bed and gave me this. A moment of truth. A photo I'll treasure forever. It's as if she knew the thoughts that were swirling around my brain just this morning...

You should just pack it in already. You're not giving up. You're not a failure. You're being realistic.

It's as if she could feel the lump in my throat and how discouraged I've been feeling. How the thought of surrendering and doing what's popular eats away at me. I won't do it. I need to do this the only way I know how. With truth and meaning. For our family. For her. For me. For people who value the same thing.

Screw the facade. Show me what's real. I'll do the same.
