unplugged for 24 hours

Tuesday, July 26, 2016


I've been slowly trying to unplug from my phone the past couple months. Its definitely been subtle changes, such as unplugging from my screen at least one hour before bedtime. Making more conscious efforts not to look at my phone the first thing in the morning. Also, during the day I've been sort of good about keeping my phone at the charging station in our home and treating it more like a telephone in the home. But nothing makes you truly unplug, like throwing your phone in the washing machine for 59 minutes, on hot cycle. Yep, thats what I did Saturday morning. Crazy sleep deprived mom who was on a mission to deep clean the home Saturday morning will do things like that. I threw my phone in the basket of dirty bath mats on the way downstairs and then dumped the whole thing in the wash forgetting my phone was at the bottom of the laundry basket. To be quite honest, I started to feel a great sense of freedom and liberation. It was actually a great 24 hours of being handsfree.

The above photos are from last Friday afternoon. It was an hour before Mike walked in the door and the kids were just about going crazy. So, I decided to just take pictures of the moment. Its been a while since I've taken pictures of the girls with my big camera. They were just loving every moment of it, especially Zelie. She is such a little ham and kept photo bombing every picture! I love that she is comfortable in front of the camera with me and I get to show you the real side of her. Zelie is really reserved in public and so quiet, but you wouldn't know that she is the loudest child in our home. :)

I took these pictures Saturday during my phone free day. Clare decided to almost take her first steps. I would have normally documented via cell phone, but since I didn't have one I had to use my big camera. :) It turned out to all be a good thing. I love the pictures of Sophia cheering in the background when Clare almost took her first step. Such a proud big sister and the biggest cheerleader of them always. And yes, Clare is always pretty much in a diaper only.
