The Simple Things...

My cousin, Rebecca, is a super amazing lady with a super amazing blog and super amazing talent (I promise, I will not use the words super amazing so many times in a blog post ever again, lol)

She has a fun challenge on her blog that I'm sure lots of you already follow. It is all about capturing some of those simple things during your week. Join in if you'd like.
Here is my entry:
The reason I love this photo so much, is not for any technical reasons. I don't feel that from a photographers standpoint, this turned into a crisp, perfectly lit shot. From a Mothers standpoint however, this is perfection. 9 year old boys tend to get less cuddly and more independant during these years. He had been playing hard during the day. Came in when his friends had to go, and was asking me what he could do now because he was bored without them. I was distracted with some of the other kids talking to me, and 2 minutes later I was going to suggest something and turned around to find him asleep on the couch, legs in sweater, hand in pocket with hood on. He continued to sleep in this position for at least an hour. I don't know what it is about sleeping pictures, but they are some of my favourites. Maybe it's because all defenses are down, no fake camera faces, and they just look sweeter.....okay, so the silence in the house may have something to do with it too.

Such a sweet shot. My 10 year old did the exact same thing when he came in earlier today. They are sweetest - when they're sleeping!

With 3 boys myself, any sleeping boy is sweeter than words! I can't remember the last time any of mine have fallen asleep spontaneously (not counting a moving vehicle).!
