It was really hard to get this done and I am a week late. Right now Ryan and I are on opposite schedules. I am doing light/dark therapy for my sleeping disorder (more on that later) which is so far successfully stabilizing me on a day schedule and he is working nights. What this means is the time we see each other is both precious and stressful. We need to reconnect but with a baby I also desperately need him to watch her while I try to accomplish anything... And I would also like him to watch her while I take time for myself but that's rare. When I get it I also get backlash for that which I don't accomplish. I feel this gigantic to do list is going to crush me, I swear. And so I am not thinking about photo challenges until he's in bed or at work... And this one was a family photo.
So I finally thought of it when we were both awake, turning to him and telling him I needed to get this done.
"While we look like this?"
"I'm already a week late! And the point of this photo challenge, in part, is to capture [Dreamer] as she is. At least this will be an authentic thing of how we are right now. If I put it off any longer we won't be capturing her as she is now, she changes so fast, and I guess it just captures how we really are too."
Without further ado:
