Today is the mark of both a beginning and an ending. Today is the last day of my 365 project on The Daily Project (you can view all of my daily images here). It has been the most challenging photography project ever (and my third attempt I might add) but it has been so incredibly rewarding. While I will not continue with another 365 and posting on The Daily Project consistently I promise to crash the party over there every now and then. However, today I begin a wonderful new project with some of the most amazing female photographers I know. On the tenth day of every month we will each post photos of our son(s) with a letter and link to each other to form an internet ‘circle’. I’m a woman of few words so my letters may be short but for me, this is the perfect project to move forward with!
This was an exciting month for you, you turned five and I finally finished your awesome new Avengers bedroom, but it’s been rough too. You’ve had a multitude of doctor’s appointments and while they weren’t for anything major I know you don’t really like going. You spent your birthday snuggled up in my bed sick. You had to do some skin testing for you environmental allergies (you were a champ though!) which we know have gotten worse and are giving you a hard time. I finally thought you were over all this crummy stuff and now you’ve got strep throat and can hardly eat your beloved tacos. Your Daddy and I can’t always keep the germs away but keeping you safe and healthy is one of our biggest concerns. There have been many discussions between the two of us lately about the choices we have to make to ensure your (and your sister’s) safety and while the decisions we make may be a ‘no-brainer’ it’s not always easy and it sometimes hurts. While you may not always understand the choices we make, we hope that you will trust us because we love you and your sisters more than anything. You, sweet Finn, are our superhero!
