Friday Round-up | Long Island Family Photographer

Is it Friday already? This week has been such a whirlwind of pediatrician's visits and scrambling through the days filled with runny noses and tears. Both of the littles are doing much better though and even though it is still freezing outside, the sunshine is looking remarkably Spring-like so it gives me hope that warmer weather is on the way and we will be playing outside soon.

And now, some links!

This blog post about evening rituals made me super jealous. My evening rituals consist of trying to coerce kids who seem to hate food to eat dinner, cleaning up a bazillion toys, being called back into the bedroom for eight billion reasons including needing tissues, water, the night light a different color, and then collapsing in a heap on the couch minutes after the kids are finally asleep. I guess I can dream about relaxing evening rituals, maybe ten years from now.
