the smell of my desperation has become a stench

Sans lait

Both of my girls are going through a phase where neither of them want milk in their cereal for breakfast. Leta went through a phase of only eating refried beans for that meal, so this one isn’t nearly as head-scratching. Refried beans. Good morning!

This was mostly an accidental shot. I hit the button as I sat the camera down on the countertop and this is what it captured. I love how delicate it is, how it illustrates those first few moments in the morning as they are rubbing the sleep from their eyes, those moments before the chaos erupts, the moment before Marlo decides she’s done and dumps the remaining cereal on the floor for Coco.
