I always try to bring my kids to #myriverstory sessions. Tonight, while I was shooting, Braedon built a beautiful fort to house this dead little guy. Instead of telling him how gorgeous the shelter was, or asking him to tell me all about his ideas, I freaked out, grabbed the purell out of my bag and warned him that dead turtles can carry salmonella. Dang. Tomorrow morning I'm going to apologize first thing, and then share stories about spirit animals.
