The Portrait Project {Week 6}

A portrait of my children…because photos should been seen and shared.

My poor little dragon, he was not happy at all when we decided to get ready to go trick-or-treating. In fact, he has not been happy all week.

His top teeth are coming in and those darn things can’t decide whether they want to come out or stay in. One day they’ll peek out to say hello then a day later they’re back in his gums again. He’s been super fussy and wakes up every few hours at night.

Just like all things, this stage will pass and I’m sure his teeth will come out soon.

This girl LOVES to help.

After we made some kale chips, she wanted to wash the dishes…so I let her. It’s really just an excuse for her to play with water and she really makes more of a mess than anything.

As much as I can, I let her ‘help’ with work around the house such as vacuuming and doing laundry. I try to make it fun for her so she enjoys doing these day to day activities.
