52 Week Photography Challenge - Week 3 (Simplicity)


This weeks theme for the photography challenge is 'simplicity.' I think this has been my favourite theme so far because lets be honest, its those simple everyday things that really matter the most.
A few mornings ago, after a very bad night with Lily, I decided to let her come into bed with me so that she could watch tele as I dozed for a bit. I was half asleep and half awake (I'd never fall properly asleep with her in my care) when I felt these teeny little arms patting and smoothing the blankets around me.  I opened my eyes to look at lily and she bent over and kissed my cheek and whispered "It's okay mummy I'm tucking you in. And look I've brought Ralphie and Bear too." I looked next to me and she'd tucked in her two favourite soft toys, the two that she hasnt been without since she was a baby..honestly my heart just melted! She was doing the same routine I do with her when she goes to bed and it was just the most beautiful feeling watching my sweet little girl emulate this. 
You don't realise it at all but its the every day simple routines you carry out that your little ones pick up on the most.

  3. Such a beautiful story to match a lovely photo. Its the little things we do with our children that they remember. Not the big things!

  4. It is true, the little 'simple' things strike a chord with our children the most. I'm beginning to realise this more and more. Thanks for the comments ladies xx
