I’ll admit I had lofty expectations of parenthood. I said I’d never let my kid eat fast food. I said I’d never let my kid play video games or stay up late. I said my son would always wear nice clean clothes and be well-mannered. I’ve learned in 2 1/2 years that my aspirations of raising a “perfect” child were a tad ambitious. Don’t get me wrong, I still try my best. But I’ve accepted that failure is a part of parenthood. I’ve accepted that no matter how many $30 t-shirts my toddler has in his closet, he’ll stain each and every one of them. I’ve learned to let him just be himself– dirt, muck, mud and all.
Week four’s theme was “imperfection”. For me, this photo represents how I have embraced imperfection as a mom. So now I say, “Bring on the chicken nuggets, Angry Birds and 10pm bedtimes. And the mud. Oh, how I love mud…”

My little boy loves tub time. Recently he developed a habit of laying or floating on his tummy and
swimming– errr, flapping around with the intent to swim I imagine I whipped out the camera the other day to catch a shot of my little fish-in-training.

This week’s theme for the Project 52 was “inspiration.” Here’s my baby boy, playing in an Ikea storage box, kissing his doll while I spied on him from my desk. When I look at my sweet boy I feel like I can do anything. He inspires me to be better than I am. And his birth is what led me to starting this business.
My son is the first word of every sentence I live.
Thank you My Four Hens Photography for giving me a guide to actually follow through on this year-long project. See you guys again in a few days for week 4
