On Wednesday I decided to play along with Our Little Sins on Instagram to take 12 photos during the day in honour of the date being 12/12/12. Starting at 7:12 am, I took a photo every hour until I had twelve photos. By about the third photo I was realising that I may not have picked the most interesting day to document. It was a very boring, quiet, stay-at-home day actually.
But there is method to my mundanity! You see, I knew the next day we were headed to the shops – which at this time of year can be a recipe for disaster with a preschooler and a toddler. So by having a perfectly ordinary day the day before I I figured I was reducing the chance of tantrums and trials by a significant amount. And apart from a little medicare whinging (and really who could blame them), the shopping trip was smooth sailing.
And for that I am very, very grateful.
