It’s been a rainy few days, so even getting out for our daily quarantine walk has been a challenge. The hardest part of this time at home for us has been finding ways to keep the girls entertained…..and not fighting with one another. Not going to lie, it has been a major challenge! So, I started looking for some ideas that would get them excited and make my own mood brighten up a bit. Eric suggested baking cookies together and I though “yes, and then let’s eat them while we have a little tea party!” So, I got the girls all dressed up in their new Rachel Parcell dresses, put on make-up for the first time in days and felt an instant little happiness boost. I mean it definitely helped that cookies were going to be involved.
Though they still fought over who’s cookie was bigger and got way crazy carrying each other around, almost knocking over teacups, we had a blast. And it felt good to pretend for a bit that things were normal and this was just another day. I’ll definitely look back on these photos a bit differently than I do on our other little shoots, but hopefully it will make me appreciate all the tea parties to come all the more. Fingers crossed they will be set at a picnic, outside!
