I am a big fan of HGTV – I love the shows where a designer comes in and takes an ordinary space and uses amazing materials to create something fabulous.  The shows where the after photos look nothing like the before images.  It’s the type of TV that I like to watch before bed . . . → Read More: How Do You Define Child Proof

When I returned home last Friday I noticed something different about Ruslan.  No matter what I asked him – Do you want to play? Do you want to sit with Mommy? Do you want a snack?

Getting one child to look the camera and smile isn’t easy.  Make that two busy boys and it is a rare occurrence.  I was trying to take a picture of them together in these outfits and as soon as I held the camera up, they both spun around.
