picture me {im}perfectly.peter pan’s shadow

i don’t know if you have seen this on pinterest:


but i thought it would be the perfect gift 
for K to give D 
for his 6th birthday, 
which was on monday.

but of course, i left it to the last minute
(which lately is where all things tend to end up).
and i just couldn’t get the shadow 
to really show up on his wall.
so i brought in the big guns… 
i asked B to help. 
and he couldn’t figure it out, either. 

so here’s what we ended up doing:

and you know what?
D couldn’t be more thrilled. 

but it’s not perfect.
suspects that maybe the pinterest photo was photoshopped.
that made me feel slightly better 
that what i was trying to do was actually impossible.
but it was still something that i couldn’t do perfectly 
and something that i left until the last minute to do. 

and this girl 

could have been speaking my own heart 
when she wrote her blog post.

who was pledged to be married to him
and was expecting a child.
While they were there,
the time came for the baby to be born,
