I know next to nothing about parenting tweens or teens. I’m not ready for my kids to grow up to be adults. BUT, I do feel like a seasoned mother in general.
You know, like a stone pan that cooks a great loaf of bread but will still burn a pizza if you leave it in too long? Or something.
I’m seasoned enough to take the four kids to a dentist appointment together right after swimming lessons without freaking out anymore. And then to the grocery store for prescriptions and goggles afterwards. But I still get pushy when the transition from swimsuits to dentist tees takes too long and we run the risk of being late.
Because I’m also seasoned enough to know that rescheduling an appointment for four kids at the same time is nearly impossible. And they don’t appreciate your attempts to do so.
But we’ll just keep on, keeping on. Because that’s what seasoned mothers do, right?
Through The Lens Thursday is a self-improvement photography project that Alison and I are doing this year (again!).
Don’t forget to join our Flickr group or share your own posts if you’d like to follow along and work on your own photography! And use the hashtag #throughthelensthursday to connect with others working on it, too.
Next week’s prompt is FRUIT.
