Fifty Two On Friday : Week 3 – Joy | Stedman Fayetteville NC Children Baby Photographer

This week:  Joy.  There is nothing that brings me more joy than a lazy weekend morning with my son.  So often I find myself trying to squeeze in a few more hours of editing, when I should be squeezing in a few more hours of playing trains.  One day, in the not so distant future, I will have a son with a closed bedroom door.  His video games and music will take the place of toy trains and cars.  I won’t be his best friend anymore.  Until then, I will use every spare moment I can find to make sure that I am Emily the green train with a tender, or Sir Topham Hatt giving directions on where each engine has to go “sleep” at.  I will watch Thomas and pretend that I don’t cringe everytime they say “cross”.  I will spend my weekend morning on the floor being my little boy’s best friend, because that is where my joy is.  And nothing brings him more joy than when I play with him.

Now go over to Kara Jo Photography | Memphis Tennessee Photographer’s blog to see how she interpreted Joy this week!

January 21, 2011 - 1:53 pm Elaine Dieball - You are EXACTLY right. My son is 2.5 and is obsessed with Thomas and all his assorted accessories. And one day he will think I'm totally uncool. But right now he delights in me taking notice to the towers he builds with blocks, with the way the animal crackers devour each other, with the way he pulls the engines into Tidmouth Sheds. And my heart bursts with love. Great picture.
