Missing a Milestone

It has happened to all of us at one point or another. For whatever reason, we miss photos of a milestone moment. That happened for me during my son's first haircut.

My husband and I were both working a lot. We had to work opposite shifts so that one parent was always with our son. This meant that one of us sometimes missed one of the "firsts". Usually, this happened to my husband, so when he wanted to take our son to his first haircut, I didn't mind even though I was working.

Unfortunately, my camera was in my purse which meant it had gone to work with me. So my husband missed those first shots.

That's ok though. I went along on my son's second haircut and was able to capture some great photos.

If you miss a milestone moment, don't be afraid to recreate it at another time. You can also substitute photos from another event. Photos are very important, but they can take a backseat to the story. The reason we choose to scrapbook is to document a memory, not just the photos.
