Last weekend, Team P went on its first roadtrip as a family of three. We headed south to see my family, and even though it was only a four-hour drive and only one night, it did test Baby P’s remarkable patience and good attitude. Since he was fussier than usual and I felt a bit flustered, I didn’t even bother to ask for posed pictures with the family members he met that day. At the time I had the fleeting thought that I might be mad at myself for that later, and INDEED I AM.
But. Fortunately Mr. P had the presence of mind to grab my camera and catch moments like this one, in which Baby P meets his great-grandmother. And so now I will treasure this photo of my not-even-that-fussy baby with my Grandma forever and ever amen.
Rookie mom lesson learned: just take those photos. Always.
