rather than quickly offering the baited response, carlie and i pause, look at each other, and take a short breath through our teeth...
...well, believe it or not, we don't take THAT many photos of him... and then we proceed into a well versed and rehearsed dialogue offering an irrational explanation as to why we don't take more photos of our baby boy, when in fact, we had committed to capturing at least one... JUST ONE... intentional image of our little lincoln roe, each day for the first 100 days of his life in this world.
less than 30 days in, and we dropped our commitment.
now, i understand that it is not the end of the world. we will take many many MANY photographs of lincoln as he grows. and up until now, we actually have taken quite a few photographs. but no, that's not the point.
we failed to see through on our commitment.
and along with about 95% of the 304,059,724 americans who made new years resolutions, and finally found their excuses by valentines day, we dropped the ball.
...and i love this part.
perfection was never the aim.
so what do we do? we take more pictures of our son today. we live the life we are in now, and we don't allow perfection to the gift out of the present.
