Yesterday around 1:30pm Linhsey came to me crying. "Mama? Is it my time to cry?"

"No honey, you're early, but that's okay. You can cry now and get all of your tears and sadness out so you feel better."

And with that she let loose. You see most days around the time Gene would get home from school L cries. It's not the temper tantrum type of cry, or the cranky kind usually. It's usually a sad, heartfelt waterfall of tears.

It stopped after about 5-10 minutes with even a few giggles thrown in-between, and with that she was as good as new as if it never happened.

Linhsey. My child with the old soul.

These were taken with the 24-70mm , ISO 125, f/2.8, 1/125 shutter speed. I sat her on the wall of our bedroom patio. The sun was to her back in our woods behind some clouds. About an hour later the clouds lifted and the light was beautiful and I found myself wishing for a do-over : )
