AS A MUM OF TWO BOYS, there are a number of things I still don’t know about family and kids.
How a baby learns so fast how to giggle, play with his hands, hold a spoon, say his siblings names. Why his little hand keeps hanging out of his cot when he falls asleep, and why his skin smells so nice. I don’t know what is driving him to run straight ahead as soon as he learns how to walk.
I do have a clue why his smile gets bigger when your face gets closer and how your love expands each time your eyes meet…
What I am sure of, is how much you will want to remember each of these precious moments and how they need to be captured in an authentic way. And although you meant to create a family album for your own pleasure, it will somehow become your kids favourite book. I have experienced it, and feel the need of documenting our everyday life even more since we left our Parisian home two years ago to live in Dubai.
