This is my entry for the APRVSBNA which was to use the phrase "once upon a time" in the title. The full title is "Once Upon a Time....this kid sat still." and it is about my 2 year old ds and how he just won't stop moving! I've been wanting to do a layout with blurry photos of him moving around, and I thought that this was the perfect opportunity! We purposly wanted the photos to be blurry, to show movement.
The journaling reads (on page 1):
"It is hard to remember a time when my little guy was just STILL.
This is Jack’s favorite chair to climb. This is also my favorite chair to sit. This often presents a challenge because I want to sit when he wants to climb. I remember when Jack and I used to snuggle on this chair and read books with ease! Now, it sometimes feels like I am reading his books to myself, because he is just climbing all over me while I read.
Jack is a VERY active little two year old. He moves all over even when he is watching his favorite TV show! I love it! I love that he barely has time to give kisses and hugs because he is so busy with his toys. I love that he does not have time to put on his shoes and jacket because he needs to get outside RIGHT NOW. I love that I have to be very quick to block off certain areas of the house before he sneaks through.
I love (usually…) having to chase him around the couch four times just to get him to eat a meal.
Yes, I totally do not mind having a wiggly and squirmy toddler.
It reminds me to be thankful that he is ABLE to move."
Thanks for a great challenge and thanks for looking!
