I treasure this snapshot that I took as we were about to exit a Metro North train leaving NYC this summer. My oldest is currently 14 and doesn’t always smile like she used to. Perhaps she is acting mature, maybe it’s the braces or maybe she has lost a little bit of the childhood disregard for just being who you are no matter where you are. But whatever the reason she was wearing her real smile and I was lucky enough to have a camera over my shoulder. These are sweet moments as a parent.
Another photo I am going to treasure when I look back on their childhood.
