Mistakes I’ve Made

by admin on June 6, 2013

No…I didn’t buy this for myself. Now THAT would have been some mistake…

I bought this for Georgia. For our trip to Belize…in my head, I had visions of taking photographs of her underwater wearing this amazing swimsuit. I bought the matching shorts. And, big white sunglasses…I had high hopes. Photography is a funny thing. It gets me to do things I wouldn’t normally do–true story…and sometimes that is a good thing, but this time…well, I spent a ridiculous amount of money on a gorgeous bikini for Georgia. All with the hopes of getting amazing pictures.

Then, she swam in it once. ONCE. That was all it took. She is a practical girl at heart. Not to mention that she is very particular about her clothing due to some sensory issues she has(yes, my generation has a NAME for everything our children experience…that is just a fancy way to say that she doesn’t like it when her clothes bug her). I should have known that she wouldn’t actually want to swim in it. It bugged her. It wouldn’t stay put. She looked ridiculously cute…I mean FREAKISHLY AWESOME in it. I was so excited because I knew it was right. Every day, I would ask her to wear it. Every day, she would refuse and put on her boring black and white bathing suit that I bought at Superstore. SUPERSTORE! I got more and more frustrated…frustrated at the missed opportunity of said incredible picture and frustrated at myself for thinking it was a good idea to spend that much money on an 8 year old’s bathing suit.

Truthfully, a part of me knew she would never wear it. That she would think it was cute, but that she would want to be in the much less fussy suit. But, I bought it anyway. It’s funny because before we have children…before we know who’ll they’ll actually be…we all have this amazing picture in our heads of the things that they’ll do. Little girls in tutus excited to go to her first ballet class(don’t even ASK ME ABOUT BALLET or I’ll lose it). Little boys playing street hockey with the other boys on the block(Jack couldn’t even name 3 hockey teams if you asked him). And, then you meet the people who will be your children and you realize how incredibly stupid and naive you were. Your kids are nothing like this storybook version that you dreamed up. In fact, they are way more awesome and interesting….and, that is why having them is so amazing. But, from time to time…even though you know who they are now, you slip back into this fairytale version of who you thought they might be and you buy a silly $60 bikini. For an 8 year old. Who you know will never wear it…

I think her 16 year old self will be dying over this picture…she’ll be like ‘why didn’t you make me wear that? It’s so awesome.’ ~sigh~ Another storybook version I’ve yet to meet…

I could have wrote this myself, but you did it so much better. I thought I’d know who my girl would “be” but her version of herself is so much better. Even if she won’t wear the clothes I buy her (stretching pants are always better) or act “normal” haha. My hopes of getting amazing pictures are always crushed. I love her all, no matter what, but I always imagined that she’d just be mini me. She is so much better then me anyway.
