This week's Photo Hunter's theme is Empty.
My mother-in-law, who has not been to visit for 18 months, surveyed the kids' room upon arrival and noticed the twins' toddler beds. She exclaimed, "Last time we were here, they were in cots!" (she's English, she means cribs). Wow, that was so long ago for me that I hardly remember it. So I went digging into our photo archives. This is the last picture I took of Philip's crib, just before we dismantled and sold it. It looks so forlorn and empty. Looking at it gives me the beginnings of empty-nest syndrome. I hope the people who bought it have filled it with lots of blankets and toys and love.
